Those crimson-bleeding Sooner fans who love watching their team battle the Texas Longhorns have reason to rejoice. Oklahoma will compete against Texas at the Cotton Bowl until at least 2025.

Oklahoma City’s News 9 reported that officials have confirmed a five-year extension for the “Red River Showdown” to be played at Dallas’ Cotton Bowl.

The matchup takes place once a year during the Texas State Fair.

Joe Castiglione, Oklahoma’s athletic director, said that he is excited that the tradition of this game will continue.

The extension doesn’t only mean more football. It also means five more excuses to eat large amounts of chips and pizza in your buddy’s basement. That is something everyone can get excited about.
