The group won its first Big 12 championship when OU beat Nebraska, 23-20, on Dec. 4, 2010.
“There’s little things you remember about those games, but just the feeling of playing in Cowboys Stadium,” OU quarterback Landry Jones said. “It’s a great atmosphere. And then just winning the Big 12 there ... It was a fun game.”
The Aggies are no strangers to Cowboys Stadium either. They faced Arkansas there from 2009-11. They also wrapped up the 2010 season by playing LSU in the Cotton Bowl.
Everyone involved is heading to a familiar place and is happy to be doing it.
“Going back home. Especially this game, I’ve got friends that go to A&M; that was the closest big university to my hometown. It’s fun all the way around,” McFarland said.” You’ve got guys that are rooting for them, stuff like that. It’s a big competition, but being in JerryWorld (Cowboys Stadium) is just amazing. It doesn’t matter if you’re in the visitors’ locker room or the cheerleading locker room. Everything’s nice and it’s all brand new.”
