A Clash of Titans

The result of over a century of football rivalry—we're talking all the way back to 1900, before Oklahoma was even a state— the Red River Showdown is an annual game played between the University of Texas Longhorns and the University of Oklahoma Sooners. If you're a football fan or just want an excuse to yell at absurd volumes, you'll definitely want to throw on some orange (or crimson, if you feel so inclined) and head to Fair Park. Even if you can't make it, find a sports bar, find a seat, and brace yourself for a wave of sports culture (and by culture, we mean fervor) you'll find in few places outside of Texas. It'll definitely be something to remember.
