The latest installment of the Red River Rivalry takes place in the Cotton Bowl on Saturday as both Oklahoma and Texas will look to avoid a second loss in the Big 12.

The No. 15 Texas Longhorns will write another chapter in the Red River Rivalry as they take on the No. 13 Oklahoma Sooners in an important Big 12 showdown in the Cotton Bowl on Saturday.

Texas (4-1, 1-1 in the Big 12) fell from the top of the Big 12 standings after losing a 48-45 shootout to No. 5 West Virginia last week. Among the slew of other teams with a 1-1 conference record is Oklahoma (3-1, 1-1), which lost to the No. 6 Kansas State Wildcats, 24-19, on Sept. 22.

Another loss in the Big 12 will put the loser in a tough position going forward, adding another wrinkle to this long-time rivalry. Texas will also be trying to avenge last season's meeting, which saw the Longhorns get crushed, 55-17, by the Sooners in early October.

According to OddsShark, Oklahoma opened this week as three-point favorites, with the over/under set at 63.

Kickoff in the Cotton Bowl is set for 11 a.m. CT, and the game will be televised on ABC.
