A statement from Oklahoma Director of Athletics Joe Castiglione on the extension of the Red River Showdown in Dallas to the year 2025:

“Generations of Sooners and Longhorns will proudly attest that the Red River Showdown is played amidst the most unique atmosphere in all of college football. Two of football’s greatest programs and their legions of passionate fans are diametrically situated in the historic Cotton Bowl, surrounded by revelry of the State Fair of Texas.
 
“The University of Oklahoma is thrilled about preserving the rich tradition of this game in the City of Dallas. While subject to any necessary final approval by the board of regents from universities, we are looking forward more future student-athletes and fans enjoying the spectacle of this renowned football rivalry for many years to come.”
