The Longhorns and Sooners renew their legendary rivalry Sunday

For the 107th time in their storied history, the Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners face off Saturday in the Red River Shootout at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. Texas leads the all-time series 59-42-5, but the Sooners carry a two-game Red River winning streak into this year's contest, having blown Texas out in last year's game, 55-17. Oklahoma is favored by a field goal for this year's game.

Oklahoma entered this season with typically high hopes, but the Sooners struggled with UTEP in their opener, then lost at home to Kansas State in Week 3, effectively extinguishing their national title aspirations. Quarterback Landry Jones, a preseason Heisman Trophy contender, has posted solid numbers, averaging 258 yards passing per game and completing more than 63% of his pass attempts.

Texas relied almost exclusively on their offense in jumping to a 4-0 start, but were unable to stop the explosive West Virginia attack in last week's loss. The Longhorn offense is still sixth in the nation in scoring, averaging 46.8 points per game. Quarterback David Ash has taken a leap forward from last season, completing a staggering 77.5% of his pass attempts and slinging 11 touchdowns through five games.

Kickoff is scheduled for 11:00 CT, with ABC handling the television broadcast.
