AUSTIN, Texas (KXAN) — While University of Texas fans gear up for the big game against Oklahoma University, a key pre-grame tradition is underway.
The ritual involves delivering the game ball from Austin to Dallas for the Red River Showdown. This is no easy task. A group of U.T. Naval ROTC midshipmen are running the ball to the stadium.
One of the runners talked to KXAN News Today about this annual tradition.
