One of the biggest rivalries in college football will be played over the weekend. Texas and Oklahoma will play in the latest edition of the Red River Showdown at the Cotton Bowl. These two teams have been heading in different directions this season, but that hasn’t stopped ticket prices on the secondary market from reaching their highest point since 2012.
The current average price for Oklahoma vs Texas tickets is $261.48 with a get-in price of $117. That places it right in the middle of the past four rivalry games, with matchups in 2011 and 2012 being more expensive, but topping prices from the past two seasons.
With a 4-0 record, the Sooners sit as the No. 10 team in the country on the AP Poll. However Texas has won just one of its first five games, giving up at least 28 points in every game. The lone win came against Rice by a score of 42-28. In the losses, the Longhorns have been outscored 163-81.
This will be the 110th meeting between these two schools in a football game, dating back to 1900. Over that time, Texas holds a 60-44-5 advantage over Oklahoma. The Sooners won last season’s game, as they were also ranked at the time, 31-26 and have won four of the past five meetings. That streak is likely to be two in a row and five of the last six, as Oklahoma is a 16-point favorite entering this weekend’s game.
