Report: Texas and Oklahoma game to stay at Cotton Bowl through 2025

According to a report by the Dallas Morning News, the Red River Showdown between Texas and Oklahoma will continue to be played at the Cotton Bowl Stadium through 2025.

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings formally announced the extension, and former Chairman of the Texas State Fair Pete Schekel shared that Texas and Oklahoma is

“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.  The schools appreciate the venue.  It’s more of an event, than it is a game.”

The game means more money for each school and an estimated $20 million economic boost to the Dallas economy.
