The Red River Shootout saw some early fireworks as players from Texas and Oklahoma met on the field before the game and got into a heated scuffle.

It’s hardly surprising that emotions were running hot ahead of this intense rivalry game with College Football Playoff implications.

Let’s just hope nobody gets too excited during the game. Per the announcers, players involved got flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct, meaning one more of those during the game and they will be ejected.
