University of Oklahoma Students Prepare for Red River Rivalry

Posted: Updated:

NORMAN, OK-- It's almost too much excitement to concentrate in class, the event that students at the University of Oklahoma look forward to all year. Buses to the Cottonbowl may be secured, and hotel rooms booked for the weekend, but most importantly, students need to feel their golden tickets in their hands.

Thousands of Sooners handed over $110 dollars for a coveted ticket, and once that ticket is safely tucked away, the right-of-passage trash-talking begins. Freshman to Seniors, faculty and alumni all know this one game determines bragging rights for 364 more days a year.

"The game is huge, regardless of Texas loosing last week. It's OU-Texas: anything happens, and we've seen that before so it's a huge game," said OU IFC President Daniel Jones.

Even the bookstore is packing up to head South. They have a booth at the fair for anyone looking to wear a little extra crimson and cream.
