#15 Texas Vs. #13 Oklahoma
Saturday, Noon EDT, ABC
It’s a pretty good rivalry when both sides are in the Top 15 and it’s an “off year” for each team. This year’s Red River Rivalry, between Texas and Oklahoma, will not feature a Top 10 team for the first time since 1999. Texas hopes to avenge an embarrassing 55-17 loss during last year’s Oklahoma game, and to secure the Longhorns’ first win against the Sooners since 2009.
The Oklahoma Sooners are three weeks removed from their loss to Kansas State on Sept. 22. Ranked as high as #4 going into this season, Oklahoma has been seen as a disappointment, even with just the one loss. Letting UTEP hang in there during their first game made voters think twice about placing Oklahoma above Oregon, and then the dominoes started to fall. Meanwhile, Texas started the season at #15, climbed as high as #9, and went back down after a 48-45 loss to West Virginia last week.
