1. Which school does the University of Texas play in its annual Red River Rivalry?

Texas squares off with Oklahoma in the Red River Rivalry, which dates to 1900 and refers to a river that divides the states. The game was long known as the Red River Shootout, but “shootout” was dropped in 2005 to avoid any association with gun violence. The Cotton Bowl on the Texas state fairgrounds in Dallas is the “neutral” site of the game, at least through 2015.
