Texas will meet Oklahoma in the 2010 Red River Rivalry in Dallas at the Cotton Bowl. Neither Texas or OU have looked like world beaters this year. The Texas Longhorns are coming off a disappointing loss to UCLA, and the Oklahoma Sooners have struggled against a few unranked opponents in recent weeks. It will definitely be an interesting matchup this year because of the way the teams strengths and weaknesses match up:
- Longhorn Offense (weak) vs Sooner Defense (weak)
- Sooner Offense (strong) vs Longhorn Defense (strong)

The summer of 2010 will officially be in the rear view mirror with the kick off of the football season this weekend. And what a summer it was for the Big 12. The conference was on life support, and then flat-lined, then was brought back to life, albeit minus a couple limbs. But that is for another time; there’s a football season to play.
The Big 12 is starting the 2010 campaign with three teams ranked in the top 10 of the preseason polls. And there are several others that hope to crash the party and make the final season of the Big 12 as we know it a special one.
Ah, yes, optimism reigns supreme in early September for nearly everyone.

Here is a look at the Big 12 South and the questions each team needs to answer if they hope to turn that optimism into something real.
