    The game is played every year at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. Dallas is almost exactly halfway between Austin and Norman, so it is considered a "neutral" site.

    The Longhorns' biggest rival in football is the University of Oklahoma. The football game between Texas and Oklahoma is known officially as the Red River Rivalry, but more commonly called the Red River Shootout, and is held annually in Dallas, Texas at the Cotton Bowl. This longstanding rivalry pits the populations of Texas and Oklahoma against one another in a bitter competition over state pride and bragging rights.

    The series began in 1900 and has been played in Dallas since 1912. Dallas was chosen as a "neutral" site since it is situated approximately halfway between Austin, Texas and Norman, Oklahoma

    i do not imagine usc or notre dame truly care about who else has video games taking section in a similar time as they do. there'll be extra human beings observing that interest then ou/texas via the indisputable fact that's mid-west and west coast. the "red river shoot out" is truly no longer that huge of a deal to those those who do not keep on with the large 12 ... all of us in simple terms anticipate that texas is going to triumph over them.

    Dallas is the halfway point, so it's considered neutral ground for both teams...
