Via the AP: New contract keeps Texas-OU rivalry in Dallas until 2010

The Red River Rivalry is staying in Dallas until 2010.

Texas and Oklahoma officials announced Thursday they have agreed to keep their annual football game at the Cotton Bowl for another five years, replacing the current contract that expires in 2008.

On the one hand, cool, as the game should be in Dallas.

On the other, while an extension to 2010 sounds like a lengthy one, the sad fact of the matter it isn’t.

  1. As an outsider looking in,I think it should got to a home and home series. That’s what the Iron Bowl did, and honestly, the only thing better than beating Auburn, is beating Auburn at Jordan Hare. How much fun would it be to beat the stuffing out of OU at their place?

  2. I take the point. However, I have always thought that the neutral site, half-burnt organge, half-read stadium was an especially cool venue for the game, and that it gives it a unique atmosphere and quality.
