Red River Showdown at State Fair of Texas is Kicking Off Soon


The State Fair of Texas is kicking off in less than two weeks! A central part of the State Fair experience is the Red River Showdown football game hosted at the Cotton Bowl stadium. The University of Texas-Austin Longhorns go head-to-head with the Oklahoma University Sooners during this annual classic in front of a crowd more than 100,000 fans.

The Red River Showdown, which is often called the Red River Rivalry, has a history dating back all the way to 1900. In fact, the storied history of this rivalry dates back to when Oklahoma was still a US territory. The series has been hosted at the Cotton Bowl stadium in Dallas’ Fair Park since 1929. The University of Texas (UT) Longhorns leads the all-time series with 61 wins, 44 losses, and 5 ties. Last year, the Longhorns beat the Sooners 24-17.

This year’s game will be hosted on Saturday, October 8 to great fanfare. A limited number of tickets were made available through UT’s and OU’s athletics offices. But as of the time of this writing, tickets were still available through other sites, such as Vivid Seats and TicketCity. More than 100,000 screaming fans will be a part of the excitement at the Cotton Bowl stadium.

Tickets to the Red River Showdown give you general admissions to the State Fair during game day. Take advantage of everything else Texan being celebrated at the fair grounds, including livestock, great food, and other entertainment.
