The Red River Showdown will be staying at the Cotton Bowl for the foreseeable future.

The Dallas Morning News reports that the Texas-OU football game will remain at Fair Park through 2025. The previous deal had gone through 2020.

From The Dallas Morning News: The latest contract extension with Oklahoma and Texas doesn’t include any changes to the deal or extra incentives, said Dallas civic leader Pete Schenkel, who led negotiations for the city and the State Fair of Texas. But the city is nonetheless pressing ahead with other improvements to Fair Park.

Numerous games and events have moved in recent years to AT&T Stadium in Arlington -- including the Cotton Bowl postseason football game -- but the extension keeps OU-Texas at Fair Park for the next decade plus.
