For the first time since 2011, ESPN’s College GameDay will be at the Cotton Bowl for the Red River Showdown, as the Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners square off for the marquee matchup.

Both teams come into the matchup ranked for the first time since 2012, with No. 19 Texas riding a four-game winning streak and coming off of a close win over the Kansas State Wildcats; the Horns first in Manhattan since 2002. No. 7 Oklahoma remains undefeated at 5-0 and is attempting another push for the College Football Playoffs.

Texas leads the all-time series 65-46-5, but the Sooners have won six of the last 10 matchups between the rivals, and three of the last four.
