Red River Shootout sparks memories on both sides of the ball

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) _ Bo Scaife has been playing for Texas so long he remembers beating Oklahoma.

Jason White has been an Oklahoma Sooner so long he remembers losing to Texas.

The two are the only players still in uniform who were also in uniform in 1999 when Texas rallied for a 38-to-28 win over O-U and then-rookie head coach Bob Stoops.

Scaife says he remembers hearing the ``Eyes of Texas'' in the tunnel to the locker room, not ``Boomer Sooner'' pounding in his ears.

White says he only remembers how hard the team worked and the players feeling as if they had failed.

The O-U players haven't had that feeling since, having won four straight over Texas going into Saturday's game.

The second-ranked Sooners and fifth-ranked Longhorns kick off at 11 Saturday morning at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.
