    With 100 Texas-Oklahoma games in the history books, it's time to draw a few conclusions about the Red River shootout (we still find "Red River Rivalry" to be a mouthful). First, Texas will win Saturday 16.5 to 15.7. OK, that's not a real score, but it is the historical average for points scored in this game.

    DALLAS -- Confident that a thorough security plan for the Cotton Bowl was developed before a deadly explosion outside the University of Oklahoma's football stadium last week, authorities said no drastic new safeguards will be made for Saturday's game between Texas and Oklahoma. But authorities warned that security personnel around the Cotton Bowl will be more alert in response to the blast, which investigators say was caused when explosives attached to a student's body detonated within 100 yards of where more than 80,000 fans were gathered inside Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. "That's one of things we drilled into the heads of...
