Today is the Red River Rivalry, bet you can't say that three times fast. Whoo hoo I love me some football and I love this game. This game is a long standingrivalry between University of Texas and Oklahoma University. Not only is this just a game between two universities this is a game between "The" Universities of Texas and Oklahoma. and it happens at the state fair of Texas in Dallas at the traditional Cotton Bowl stadium. There is so much history in this game that it gives me chills. It is caled the Red River Rivalry because the Red River forms the boundary between the state of Texas and the state of Oklahoma. The first game between UT and OU was in 1900. This isn't your normal football game this is a massive weekend celebration for most students. Professors cancel classes on the Friday of this weekend and most of campus is empty from all of the students making the road trip to Dallas, normally a 3 hour drive turns into a party. I say that because litterally it is a party. Many of the frats and organizations rent out tour buses and invite dates for the weekend.
* Make sure to wear cute, yet comfy shoes for walking and standing in all day. I suggest gladiator sandals for hot day games and cute flats of the patent kind for night games. If you are gutsy then go for heels but beware you will be walking around tailgates, standing at the game for at least 3 hours and then possibly going to dinner after the game. So wear your shoes at your own risk.
* V-neck dresses are flattering and usually my go to because it is flattering to my figure.
*Make sure to wear your school's colors or at least one of them. Nothing is more annoying than that person who is trying to be ironic by wearing a random color to a football game. If you are bothering to cheer and go to the game then the least you can do is support your school by wearing one of their colors. While on that topic, I know burnt orange is not a super common color, even though it is a really hot color for fall, there isn't another substitue for it at a UT game. Coral, orange, peach, shades of brown and shades of yellow do not count and should not be worn to a game. I know it sounds trivialbut if it is not burnt orange it clashes and stands out like a sore thumb.
*Make sure to wear cute accessories such as necklaces, bangles, belts and scarves are great for games.
*I love dresses at the game and seeing all the cute dresses girls find. One of my friends made a sweetheart strapless dress out of a beautiful fabric she had with burnt oranges, gold threads, and browns in it and it was perfect. White dresses are also perfect cause you can wear them with belts and boots and be set to go.
