Sark Previews Red River Rivalry Game

The Texas Longhorns are slated to take on the Oklahoma Sooners in the Red River Rivalry on Saturday at the Cotton Bowl. Both teams enter the game 5-and-0. The Longhorns snapped a four-game losing skid to the Sooners with a dominant 49-0 win last season.

"I talked to the team about this. What an honor it is to be a part of this game and be part of this rivalry," said head coach Steve Sarkisian. "119th time Texas and Oklahoma have played in the Red River Rivalry. A lot of great players, a lot of great teams, a a lot of great coaches and we don't take that lightly. We are definitely grateful and thankful that we get to be a part of this game."

"Our team really had a nice week of practice. I thought their preparation, their attention to detail and their focus was as good as I have been around them now in three years, and I think that's what it is going to take," said Sarkisian. "We understand this is an emotional game, but the best way to perform on Saturday is to execute at a really high level with a real sense of physicality and I think our guys are prepared to do that."

Kick off is at 11 a.m. on Saturday at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.
