How to Plan for the 2019 AT&T Red River Showdown
The time-honored tradition at the State Fair of Texas, the AT&T Red River Showdown between the University of Oklahoma Sooners and the University of Texas Longhorns has been played at the State Fair since 1929. With an 11 a.m. Texas time kick-off, the State Fair is urging fans to arrive early to make sure they have plenty of time to go through security, not only into the fairgrounds but also into Cotton Bowl Stadium for the game. The Fair is also urging fans to be aware of the new clear bag policy for Cotton Bowl Stadium by visiting BigTex.com/football.
Here are some things to keep in mind if you’re heading to the game!
- Due to an 11 a.m. local kick-off time, the State Fair will open early to allow fans to arrive and enjoy the Fair before game time, so plan your travel to the fairgrounds accordingly.
- State Fair Will Call will open at 6:30 a.m.
- Official State Fair parking lots and all gates will open at 7 a.m.
- Coupon Booths and Online Coupon Pick up Centers will open at 7 a.m.
- Purchase coupons ahead of time at BigTex.com and skip the long lines. Pick up your coupons at a Hospitality Center instead of a Coupon Booth.
- Hospitality Centers and Information Booths will open at 7 a.m.
- Outdoor concessions, including the Tower Building Food Court, will open at 8 a.m.
- The State Fair of Texas Midway will open at 8 a.m.
- FOX Sports will air a special two-hour edition of BIG NOON KICKOFF delivered by Wendy’s to the State Fair of Texas LIVE from 9 a.m.-11 a.m. on Saturday in front of the Hall of State on Lone Star Boulevard. The BIG NOON SATURDAY matchup, Oklahoma vs. Texas, kicks off at 11 a.m. Texas time on FOX. Fans are urged to arrive early.

- DART trains and buses will become more crowded as game-time approaches and at locations closer to Fair Park.

This is your Team Captain speaking, and on behalf of all of us at 99.5 The Wolf, we would LOVE for you to join the Wolf Team to help fight Breast Cancer October 26th at North Park Center in Dallas.
Registration is just $40, but there will be a select few complimentary registrations for the first sign-ups on Team WOLF! First come, first served. We hope you’ll not only join us to support those fighting breast cancer and those who will be diagnosed in the future, but fundraise for our team by sharing your involvement on your Facebook, Gram, and Twitter so everyone will know how important this is to you! Here are just a few reasons we raise funds for the Komen Race for the Cure:
- Because 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
- Because nearly 1 in 3 women age 40-64 in Dallas County are uninsured.
- Because about 5 families will lose a loved one to breast cancer in Dallas County each week this year.
- Because Dallas County has the 3rd highest mortality rate for African American women who face breast cancer.
To join our team, click here to register. Just search our Team: WOLF, and add the Discount Code: DALLAS2019 (all caps). If you are one of the early ones to join our team, the discount code will apply for a complimentary registration. You can still choose to make a donation during the registration process, helping us reach our goal by October 26th!
Hope to be sending you ALL welcome emails soon! And let all your friends know you’re counting on them to support your run!
