The Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns are set to clash as unbeaten teams for only the second time in seven years. "They're trying to take off our heads, we're trying to take off theirs and it should be an exciting game to watch," said Oklahoma linebacker Travis Lewis. Quarterback Landry Jones looks to lead the Sooners on his second consecutive win over the Longhorns.
On the other side, Texas quarterback Case McCoy looks to build off of his first two starts and stamp his own name in the lore of the Red River Shootout, or "Rivalry," if you prefer. Case's older brother, Colt McCoy, is the last Texas quarterback to beat the Sooners.
