(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Governor Brad Henry gets a side of beef if the Sooners beat Texas in Saturday's game.

If Oklahoma loses, Texas Governor Rick Perry gets 150 pounds of corn meal from Shawnee-based Shawnee Milling Company.

Henry says he expects Number 1 Oklahoma to claim another victory in Dallas. Oklahoma has defeated Texas the last three years.

Perry says football is king in Texas and the Longhorns should prove that convincingly on Saturday.

The governors have recorded public service announcements about highway safety that are airing in the two states.

Saturday's game marks the 98th meeting between the two schools. Texas has the edge in the series with a 55-37-5 record.
