The Famous OU-Texas Tunnel at the Cotton Bowl

“From the top of the tunnel that leads into the floor of the Cotton Bowl it looks like no big deal. All you can see is end zone. Then you start running and the world explodes around you. Your eardrums are pounded by the screams of more than 75,000 fans and the blasts of the modified 12-gauge shotguns that the OU Ruf/Nek spirit group carries.

You feel the world shake and start to understand why every Longhorn or Sooner who has taken these steps before you can never seem to find the exact words necessary to convey what has just happened.

You’ve just run down the tunnel at the OU-Texas game — generally regarded as one of the greatest moments a college football player can experience.” — Mark Wangrin, ESPN
