Texas won its matchup over the Horned Frogs 32-27 behind 216 yards and two scores from Bijan Robinson, while Spencer Rattler and Oklahoma survived 37-31 despite a late comeback attempt from the Wildcats. 

College Gameday's trip to the Cotton Bowl this Saturday will mark the seventh all-time appearance for the award-winning game day show at the Red River Showdown. The last time came in 2018 when Texas squeaked by Kyler Murray and the Sooners 48-45 behind a late field goal from Cameron Dicker. 

For the Longhorns, this College Gameday appearance is the program's 18th all-time. The most recent was in 2019 when Texas fell 48-45 at home to the eventual national champion LSU Tigers.
