DALLAS – Tis’ the season for a rivalry, and there’s no better one than the Red River Rivalry. The Pigskin Plane Pull proves that.

The countdown to the half orange, half crimson kick-off in the Cotton Bowl is underway. Fans and folks in between, can count on a slew of events during Texas/OU weekend.

Hopefully one of those events isn’t a down pour. Yep, there’s a 50-percent chance it’ll pour in Big D Saturday. So, don't forget to pack your poncho.

What can fans look forward to, besides traffic? Folks planning a night on the town can count on the bars and the club scenes to be, well, a little cramped.

It’s also the biggest weekend for the State Fair of Texas. So, if you haven’t been yet, this weekend is the time to do it – or not.
And don’t for the Reunion Tower fireworks Friday, which will probably produce even more traffic downtown.

Now, if you think we’re over reacting to all this Texas/OU madness, don’t worry; we’ve got a strong feeling you’ll find out why – sooner than later.
