Drivers, Troopers Prepare for Big Game

10-06-06 - Before the Longhorns and the Sooners hit the field for the Red River Rivalry, troopers are hitting the highways.

However, some fans have found an alternate route. Many fans are boarding the Heartland Flyer and riding straight into Dallas for this weekend's border battle.

On the highways, DPS is increasing patrols during this time between the Oklahoma border and Dallas. Beside the normal speeding and seatbelt checks, they'll be picking out aggressive and drunk drivers on their way to the game.
