Texas football: Longhorn, Sooner players clap back and forth

Chris Dukes

Both Oklahoma and Texas players seem to be getting into the spirit of Red River Showdown week, trading a couple of light barbs with just a few days left before the two teams meet on the field. 

First, Texas offensive lineman Sam Cosmi told the attending media what he thought of a couple of Oklahoma defensive linemen this morning during player availability in Austin. 

Then, B.J. Foster had a couple of words for Texas quarterback Jalen Hurts. Hurts, who leads all quarterbacks in the country in rushing, has already passed 500 yards on the ground. The Alabama transfer told the media he didn't expect to get caught up in the hype surrounding the game at the Cotton Bowl. 

"I played in the Iron Bowl," Hurts said. "I think I'll be alright."

Next, it was Oklahoma's Ronnie Perkins' chance to get in a barb. He responded to Cosmi's earlier comment in turn. 

"I don't really pay attention to the trash talk," Perkins told OU Daily. "He can catch me at 11 a.m. in Dallas with the rest of the Texas football team."

Though the level of trash talk is nowhere near where it's been in previous years in a rivalry that has a rich history of inflammatory statements from both sides.

The two teams will meet on Saturday in the most anticipated game in the series since 2008. Kickoff is set for 11 a.m.

the last 10 years or so the zero u people want to talk trash but when you give it back they get personal and curse you. seems they are becoming snowflakes. they need to remember this is about a game they aren’t in, but they don’t have much else up there and when they lose the RRR their year is destroyed

Always more fun when there's trash talking.
