NORMAN – For the sixth time, ESPN’s College GameDay is heading to the Red River Rivalry.

On its Twitter account on Sunday morning, ESPN announced the popular college football show would head to the Cotton Bowl ahead of OU and Texas’ matchup. The Sooners (5-0 overall, 2-0 Big 12) and Longhorns are coming off big wins on Saturday, and the matchup will mark the first meeting since 2012 where both teams are ranked.

It will be OU’s 35th appearance on College GameDay, which is fourth among schools, behind Alabama, Ohio State and Florida.

Texas (4-1, 2-0) has won four straight after dropping its season opener against Maryland.

OU is 3-2 against Texas when College GameDay comes to the Red River Rivalry.
