Links: Red River Rivalry in July

Sure it's the middle of summer and kick off of the 2012 edition of the Red River Rivalry is more than three months away, but HornsNation and SoonerNation are diving into the game.

Carter Strickland writesInsider: It's never too early to talk about OU-Texas. Now that the SEC has swallowed up two former conference foes, this game is by far the Big 12's best.

The two sites also looked at five memorable plays from each team:

Oklahoma: Without question, Roy Williams' leaping blitz on Texas QB Chris Simms tops the list of Sooners plays in the rivalry.

TexasInsider: Stonie Clark's goalline stop and Jordan Shipley's game-changing kick return are two of the Longhorns' best plays from the game.
