This is going to be epic! The generations old rivalry between the Oklahoma Sooners and the Texas Longhorns has arrived again, and you won’t want to miss a second of the game. They’re fighting bragging rights in the longstanding Red River Rivalry on Oct. 8 and we’ve got your way to watch via live stream!
The Red River Rivalry is so intense that the Oklahoma Sooners play the Longhorns at the Texas State Fairgrounds Dallas because things always get so rowdy and intense between the teams’ fans. While the playoff hunt isn’t looking great for either team as they both hold 2-2 records, bragging rights in this game is what’s going to be on the line and that is HUGE.

This will be a make or break game for Longhorns’ coach Charlie Strong, after his team just dropped two big road losses, first to Cal then a heartbreaker to fellow Big 12’ers Oklahoma State in Stillwater, with a 49-31 drubbing at the hands of the Cowboys. Texas beat the Sooners in the RRR last year and Charlie wants a repeat in 2016.
“Last year we jumped out to a good lead and we played good early, just an emotional lead and then the game settled down,” Charlie said before the game. “But we’ve just got to go out and just play well and not give up the big play on defense and see if we can move the ball on offense and be solid in the kicking game.”
Oklahoma isn’t having the greatest season either, but at least they’ve got winning momentum going in to their game against the Longhorns after an epic 52-46 battle over TCU. We’ll see if that will be enough to topple Texas in what should be an amazing matchup.
