Red River Rivalry: Top 10 Moments of the Mack Brown vs. Bob Stoops Era

Mack Brown and Bob Stoops will meet for the 15th time Saturday in the 108th Red River Rivalry.

One of the greatest game-day atmospheres in all of sports kicks off in Dallas on Saturday when the Texas Longhorns take on the Oklahoma Sooners. The Red River Rivalry is in part defined by the 50-yard line division of the Cotton Bowl. Half of the crowd is in burnt orange, half is in crimson and both are always filled with roaring hatred in the middle of the State Fair of Texas.

Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops leads the series 9-5 against Mack Brown's Longhorns, with one-third of his wins occurring over the last three years. These October clashes between Brown and Stoops have historically evolved into conference titles and national championship runs. 

But since 2010, the Sooners have owned the Longhorns, averaging 40-point victories over Texas the last two years. The chance of the 108th Red River Rivalry mimicking the edge-of-your-seat games college football witnessed in the first decade of the 2000s is slim to none.

Rather than exploring the possibility of Texas making Saturday's game worth watching, let's take a look at the top 10 moments—in no particular order—of Mack Brown's Longhorns and Bob Stoops' Sooners in the historic Red River Rivalry.
