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.

Odds/lines subject to change. T&Cs apply. See draftkings.com/sportsbook for details.

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 is 4-1 following three straight wins after the blowout against Arkansas.

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.
