With OU and Texas joining the SEC, ESPN and ABC should insist the Cotton Bowl install lights so they can televise the game at night if they want to.

Z-man, do you wake up at 4PM or something?

Schools have good reason to schedule games the times they do and it isn’t because you have trouble waking up for the early games.

Texas and Oklahoma have always played during the Texas State Fair, where the old Cotton Bowl is, so the game has always been either 11am or 2:30pm. I don’t see that changing.
