Every Sooners, Longhorns player starts game with unsportsmanlike penalty after tussle

The Sooners and Longhorns had a pregame standoff at midfield after warmups.

While the referee did not specify what drew the flag for both teams, apparently someone from the Oklahoma side threw the "Horns down" sign, which is a penalty.

Both teams will apparently now need to be on their best behavior during the game after officials penalized every player.

As such, any subsequent unsportsmanlike conduct penalty called on Saturday afternoon will result in an immediate ejection of the offending player.

Defee re-issued the warning to the captains during the coin flip: "We're going to play this game with sportsmanship".

It's the 115th meeting between the longtime rivals and the 92nd at Cotton Bowl Stadium in the middle of the Texas State Fair.
