The rivalry between the Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns is one of the fiercest rivalries in all of sports. Each and every year, college football fans anticipate the Red River Showdown when the two historic programs go head-to-head.
The hatred between the two universities is strong and the fans love to get involved. This year, fans of the Sooners will be able to add to their trolling of Texas with the help of a delicious treat.
Oklahoma has long trolled the Longhorns by inverting Texas’ “Hook ‘Em Horns” hand sign. Now, at Oklahoma home football games this season, Sooners fans will be able to chow down on a new “Horns Down” donut.
