The Red River Shootout between the Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns is one of the most highly anticipated college football games every year.
It's played at the Cotton Bowl, a neutral site located 193 miles south of Norman, Okla. and 198 miles north of Austin, Texas.
Often times, the game has huge implications in the Big 12 standings as the Sooners and Longhorns have traditionally been two of the best teams in the conference.
Last season, the Sooners trumped the Longhorns 63-21, marking Oklahoma's third-straight win in the series. But the Longhorns still maintain a 59-43-5 overall series lead.
With this series being so intense and featuring some of college football's greatest teams in one of the best atmospheres, there are quite a few life events that you should be willing to miss should you find yourself with tickets to this game.
Here are just a few of them.
