The No. 11 Longhorns have a significant historical edge over the No. 6 Sooners, boasting a series record of 62-47-5. Defee assessed unsportsmanlike conduct penalties to every player on both teams, even though several weren't involved in the incident. Therefore, any player who gets an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty during the game for any reason will get ejected (two unsportsmanlike conduct penalties equals an ejection under NCAA rules).

Defee re-issued the warning to the captains during the coin flip: "We're going to play this game with sportsmanship". Players from each team got into a small skirmish about 30 minutes before the noon ET kickoff, resulting in officials deciding to give an unsportsmanlike penalty to every player on the field.

It's the 115th meeting between the longtime rivals and the 92nd at Cotton Bowl Stadium in the middle of the Texas State Fair.
