Texas vs Oklahoma game to be played at Cotton Bowl under Coronavirus restrictions


This is Texas-OU weekend in Dallas.

The big game is still on at the Cotton Bowl but it's going to look and sound a lot different this year. For awhile, especially after the State Fair was canceled, it looked like the 116th meet-up of Texas and Oklahoma would not even happen. But now, the game will be played but with the now familiar Coronavirus restrictions.

The first thing you'll notice is the crowds, or lack of crowds.

With no State Fair of Texas happening, parking should be much easier.

The Cotton Bowl won't be crowded because of a 25% limit on capacity.

If you're using a ride-share to get to the game, drop off or pick up will be at Gate 1.

The parking lots open at 8 a.m., and speaking of parking lots you won't see any tailgaters this year. That's forbidden.

As soon as you're on the grounds of the State Fair or the Cotton Bowl you'll be required to put on your mask. It's mandatory. And it has to be cloth, surgical style, too. No face shields. No bandanas. No neck gaiters.

The gates open at 9 a.m. and kick-off is at 11 a.m.

You can listen to Texas vs Oklhoma locally on AM 1080 KRLD.
