We are two days away from witnessing one of the biggest rivalries, not just in college football, but in all of sports: the Red River Rivalry.

Every year, the Red River Rivalry is played between the Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns in Dallas, Texas at the Cotton Bowl.

The Cotton Bowl is exactly 195.23 miles away from Norman and 199.73 miles away from Austin. Playing on a neutral field is a huge deal for this rivalry, as thousands of fans and students from each school gather in Dallas for a memorable weekend.

Coming into this weekend's matchup, both the No. 3 Oklahoma Sooners and No. 11 Texas Longhorns are undefeated, but Oklahoma has to like its chances. The Sooners are currently a 10-point favorite in the game, but the Longhorns aren't going to back down.

After a disappointing 2010 season, coach Mack Brown has his Longhorns back to their winning ways. Texas will look to ride its momentum, as the Longhorns are coming off a dominating 37-14 win against a surprising Iowa State team.

The Sooners have been doing a fair share of routing as well. Last week, the Sooners demolished Ball State, 62-6.

This has the makings to be a great game, so hopefully I don't spoil anything with my five bold predictions.
