Air traffic control in Stillwater is going to be busy this morning.

Earlier this week, Texas fans bought a flyover that will carry a banner with the inscription "45-35” — the score of Texas’ victory over Oklahoma on Oct. 11 — during ESPN College GameDay’s live telecast before the Bedlam game tonight.

In reaction, Texas Tech fans have decided to buy their own flyover.

According to Tech alum Shane Walker, a group of about 20 Red Raider fans have arranged for a pilot to fly over GameDay carrying the banner " www.39-33.com,” which signifies the score of Tech’s Nov. 1 victory over Texas.

"It’s a day Longhorn fans have forgotten,” said Walker, who said he contributed $500 to the cause. "We realize we got thumped by OU, and if OU wins, we’re done in the national championship race.

"But we want to go to a BCS bowl. Based on Texas’ head-to-head argument, we should get the BCS bowl over them.”

The BCS rankings of Texas and OU will be significant Sunday. If OU and Tech win today, OU, Texas and Tech will be tied atop the Big 12 South.

The team ranked highest in the BCS will play for the Big 12 Championship.

This week, Texas is No.
