Big 12 announces kickoff times, TV designations for Red River Showdown, full Week 6 slate

Date:

The Big 12 has announced the kickoff times and television designations for their Week 6 slate, including the Red River Showdown.

Of course, it’s the final Red River Showdown under the Big 12’s umbrella, as both the Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns are headed to the SEC after this season. Regardless, it’ll be a tremendous game, with both programs having designs on winning the conference and making it to the College Football Playoff in 2023.

That’s not the only game in Week 6 though. Check out the full slate, featuring some tremendous matchups that’ll be sure to excite fans throughout the Big 12.

Friday, Oct. 6

Saturday, Oct. 7

Week 6 is shaping up to be an awesome slate for the Big 12. We still have some time to go, but it’s going to be an exciting slate for the conference.

Red River Showdown odds: Early point spread released for Texas-Oklahoma rivalry

Continuing, Texas and Oklahoma are both undefeated through the first month of the season with their annual battle at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas looming in two weeks. With one more week still to go, FanDuel has released an early point spread for the Red River Showdown.

The Longhorns opened as a 5.5-point favorite for the rivalry game. There is not yet an over/under posted for the matchup.

Texas is the higher-ranked of the two program. The Longhorns entered this past weekend as the No. 3 team in the country while the Sooners were No. 16. They are ranked so high in part because of their impressive 34-24 victory over Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Ala., in Week 2 but also because they have continued to play winning football — even if they did sleepwalk through a tough Wyoming team the following week.

Oklahoma has played in two dominant blowouts and two trickier battles where its defense locked down the opponent. This past weekend versus Cincinnati, the Sooners defense held the Bearcats to only two field goals in a 20-6 victory.

In last year’s matchup, Steve Sarkisian‘s Texas squad laid the beatdown on the Sooners in Brent Venables‘ first Red River Showdown as the program’s head coach. The Longhorns won the game 49-0, which is the most-lopsided loss ever in the history of the rivalry. It was also the first time Texas won the Golden Hat trophy since the 2018 season.
