Nearly 50 arrests made on eve of Red River Rivalry

Who said the enthusiasm was down for the annual Red River Rivalry?

According to The Associated Press, nearly 50 people were arrested overnight in downtown Dallas as the region prepares for the Texas-Oklahoma game, local police reported Saturday.

Police said the arrests were for public intoxication, mostly in the West End section of the city.

According to a news release, 300 parking tickets were also issued and two vehicles were towed.

The Sooners and the Longhorns play Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET at the Cotton Bowl. And although fans of both squads may have been unimpressed with the teams' play thus far, this game is still part of the State Fair of Texas. And that always means a good time.
