Three things to know

• Oklahoma has won its last 15 games against Texas — the longest winning streak by either side in Red River Rivalry history. The Sooners lead the all-time series 42-24. This weekend will mark the first OU-Texas series since 2013 in which both teams are ranked.

• If the Sooners earn a three-game sweep in Austin, they’ll tie the program’s all-time winning streak. OU has won 28 consecutive games. The Sooners won a school-record 31 consecutive games in 2016. OU hasn’t lost a Big 12 game since April 23, 2017. 

• OU has outscored opponents 47-0 in its last five games. The Sooners haven’t allowed a run since April 5. 

Quotable

Coach Patty Gasso on preparing for a rivalry series: 

“We’re a pretty poised team, and I think we understand the atmosphere is gonna be good for us to be in. The fact that it’s a sellout is fun to be a part of, but our ultimate goal is to be better every time we play. We’re looking at opportunities to host regionals, super regionals. There are some things at stake, but do we really need to change what we’ve been doing? No. And that’s important, is that we remain who we are wherever we end up.”
