The Red River Showdown, the classic annual college football matchup between Texas and Oklahoma, took place Saturday at the Cotton Bowl with some special guests.
Jordan Spieth was on hand for the action, participating in the opening coin toss on behalf of the Longhorns. Pretty nice to have a three-time major champion representing his alma mater at one of college football’s most storied contests.
But the Longhorns weren’t the only ones to bring out the big guns.
The Sooners also put a notable player out there, as current Oklahoma golfer Brad Dalke took part in the coin toss as well.
The Oklahoma junior also competed in the 2017 Masters thanks to a runner-up showing at the 2016 U.S. Amateur.
Anyway, Dalke seemed to soak in the experience like Spieth did.
As Dalke noted, Oklahoma won the coin toss. And if you want to thank him for that, could he have played a role in the Sooners’ 29-24 win?
OK, maybe that’s a stretch. But Bill Dalke, Brad’s father, is a former Oklahoma football player – in fact, a starter on the school’s 1975 national championship squad.
Who knows, maybe that Dalke family mojo played a role after all.
