I’ve been to a lot of OU-Texas* games. As a matter of fact, this past Saturday marked my 50th straight and 55 of the last 56 Red River Rivalry games to see in person. Up until Monday morning however, it looked like 2020 was going to continue its assault on everything normal and I would end my streak at 49 straight, one short of the milestone 50th! But my roommate from my dorm days at OU came up with two last-minute tickets and somehow I ended up spending the second Saturday in October in the same place I’ve spent it practically my entire life. But in reality it was anything but an ordinary RRR weekend! No state fair, arriving an hour before kickoff and having NO traffic to deal with, not the usual pre-game atmosphere, having plenty of room to spread out in the stadium….well, it was different to say the least. But considering the outcome, I’m not going to complain! Any win over Texas* is a good win! Oh, by the way, my in-person record is 28-24-3. And if this turns out to be the last one I attend in person, well, it was certainly a memorable one! And a winner at that!

And speaking of winners, Spencer Rattler hitting Drake Stoops for the game-winner had nothing on Johnnytrey23 this weekend. JT23 was throwing darts of his own on Saturday, easily besting the rest of our field to post a dominating 20-point victory and lay claim to our Week 5 Pick’em bragging rights. Well done, JT! You shredded our lineup like Sherman’s march to the sea. Enjoy the spoils! Following JT we had a tie for our runner-up position between Chiefs58 and bvillesooner2, with K2C Sooner and StatesEye holding down fourth and fifth respectively.

Meanwhile, in the quest for our regular season title, MHSooner remains in the catbird seat for the 4th consecutive week. His latest challenger for the top spot is now bvillesooner2, returning to the Top Five for the first time since Week 1. SoonerRick46 remains in third, followed by K2C Sooner and IMAsooner to finish out our Top Five. You can see all the year-to-date standings here.

So with a win over Texas* in the books, the Sooners are taking the week off, but that doesn’t mean our Pick’em game takes a break! Nope, we press onward and head to Week 6. Deadline for submittals this week will be 11 AM, Saturday, October 17th. You can access this week’s games by clicking on the “Pick’em” button at the top of the board, or by clicking here.

Congratulations Johnnytrey23....you did a great job.
Eman...I am so happy that you got to go to the game. I don't know anyone else who has even gotten close to 50 Red River Rivalry games. So glad that it was a win.

I think I've been to 50 OU-UT games. Could not prove it. I first went to the 1963 game. We lost. Have not missed many. Maybe 4 or 5.
