Red River Rivalry to stay in Dallas through 2020

Posted: Updated:

DALLAS (AP) — The Texas-Oklahoma rivalry game will continue to be played at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas through 2020.

Representatives from both universities on Friday signed an agreement that will keep the annual game in Dallas, where it is played amid the sights, sounds and smells of the Texas State Fair before a roughly equal number of screaming fans wearing burnt orange and crimson and cream.

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said the rivalry is one of the top 10 in college football and that "Dallas is very proud to stay host to this 100-year-plus tradition."

The City Council has approved millions of dollars in renovations to the old stadium.
