The Red River Rivalry is a rite of passage of sorts in the college football season.
The weather is beginning to turn. The championship races are starting to take shape. And traditionally, this is when the Big 12 finds its frontrunner.
Although both teams are 2-0 in the league, this is the third time in the last 10 seasons either Texas or Oklahoma has entered the game unranked. The Longhorns have been the bigger offender, arriving to the State Fair of Texas unranked in two of the last three years.
