The Red River Showdown – the historic gridiron clash between Texas and Oklahoma – is staying at the Cotton Bowl for at least another decade.
The football game will remain at the Fair Park icon through 2025, said Dallas civic leader Pete Schenkel, who led negotiations for the city and the State Fair of Texas. The previous deal had gone through 2020, contingent on the city making since-completed upgrades to the stadium.
Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings formally announced the extension Tuesday, noting the important role the location plays in “one of the greatest rivalry games in all of sports. The school’s boards of trustees must still approve the deal, but both athletic departments have signed off on the agreement, Schenkel said.
“The schools appreciate the venue,” said Schenkel, former chairman of the State Fair of Texas. “It’s more of an event, than it is a game.” (Dallas Morning News)
