This weekend marks the 112th meeting between the Texas Longhorns (3-2) and the Oklahoma Sooners (4-1) at the legendary Cotton Bowl in Dallas and if past Red River Showdowns are any indication, it’s guaranteed to be a knock-down, drag-out fight.
For those looking to snag a ticket to this year’s game, there are still a few floating around on StubHub (the cheapest seats start around $193). Strapped for cash? Then you might be interested in something more low key (and free).
Unlike other high-profile sporting events, the game won’t cost you a single penny to watch from the comfort of your home if you have a cable subscription (kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. Central on ESPN). If you prefer a more boisterous setting, you can take in the matchup with other Longhorns and Sooners at one of the free watch parties happening around Dallas-Fort Worth.
