LOOK: Oklahoma fans bash ‘Beat Texas’ car ahead of Red River Showdown

Oklahoma students got the spirit of the Red River Rivalry on Tuesday night by bashing in a burnt orange car.

For the second year in a row, students had a “Beat Texas” car bash ahead of the game against the Longhorns. Students got together and literally beat Texas in car form.

The event took place at The Wesley, the United Methodist campus ministry at Oklahoma. The car had a Longhorns logo on the hood and had the words “BEAT TEXAS” painted on the side and “UT” on the windows. You can see more pictures from the car bash at the OU Daily.

It looks like a fun way to get into the spirit before one of the biggest rivalry games in college football. Now the Sooners will try to do the same thing – metaphorically – to the Longhorns this weekend.

Oklahoma and Texas will face off at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas at 2:30 p.m. CT on Saturday. The game will be televised on ESPN.
