c k RECREATION) Longhorn fans see RED Texas-Oklahoma weekend actually began two weeks before the game with the notorious ticket drawing line, which in its aft- ermath brought trash and debris to Memorial Stadium and gave hangovers to many students. Over 2000 students braved the elements and spent the night wrapped in sleeping bags to keep their places in line. Some played cards, some tried to study, some ate Whoppers and Super Tacos, and almost all drank some form of alcoholic beverages to while away the hours. The long vigil was a disappointment to many who drew unsatisfac- tory tickets since some 45- or 50-yard-line seats were still avail- able Wednesday afternoon, long after the line ended. The big weekend finally arrived amid the hullabaloo of the Presidential campaign. President Ford was in town in an effort to woo voters. Dallas had its usual downtown traffic jam and capacity-filled clubs on Friday night as everyone geared up for the main attraction the game. Bookmakers exalt in big rival- ries such as the UT-OU match since residents of both states placed bets on their favorite team. Jimmy the Greek hit it almost on the nose when he picked the Sooners by one point. The teams went home in a 6-6 tie that left everyone, especially the coaches and players, unsatisfied. The familiar phrase " wait till next year " was heard once again. Victory was close, but as the saying goes, close counts only in horseshoes and, hand gre- nades. The weekend was not without controversy, as Coach Darrell Royal announced he had reason to believe Oklahoma had been spying on Longhorn football practices for years. First he offered $10,000 and later to retire from coaching if OU coach Barry Switzer would submit to a polygraph test saying that he had not received information from an alleged spy. Calling the charge " ridiculous, " Switzer declined to take the test which Royal pointed to as a sign of guilt. For several weeks, each school exchanged accusations and allegations about scalping and spying, but the roar lessened and finally died from lack of proof. Rivalry between UT and OU grows greater each year, but one thing remains sure: the match will always attract huge crowds and great controversy, because both are major parts of UT ' s football season. 1 00 OU Weekend
