Following Saturday’s win over the TCU Horned Frogs, the No. 21 Texas Longhorns are 3.5-point underdogs against the No. 6 Oklahoma Sooners for next weekend’s Red River Showdown at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, according to odds released by DraftKings on Sunday.

Oklahoma enters the game undefeated after a 37-31 win over Kansas State on Saturday in Manhattan, although Saturday’s rivalry game against the Longhorns will mark the first ranked opponent the Sooners have faced this season.
Texas, at 4-1 following three straight wins after the blowout against Arkansas, has not yet faced a ranked opponent, though the Razorbacks are currently ranked No. 13 in the AP Poll Top 25 after rising as high as No. 8 prior to Saturday’s loss to the Bulldogs.
In 2020, a furious comeback for the Longhorns against the Sooners fell short in the fourth overtime, 53-45, marking the third straight loss in the rivalry game. Texas leads the all-time series 62-49-5 heading into the 117th all-time meeting between the two programs. The series began in 1900 with the yearly matchup played in Dallas since 1912 and at the State Fair since 1929 — this is the 94th time Texas and Oklahoma have faced off at a neutral site in Dallas.
