The Red River Rivalry will be back in October, but one Oklahoma fan is getting an early start on the trash talk.
A Wheel of Fortune contestant named Merlinda shared that she was an Oklahoma fan during the show. When host Pat Sajak asked why she roots for the Sooners if she lives in Dallas, she had the perfect response. RedditCFB user Miamime caught it on video.

“Because I wanted to be good at football,” she said.
At least recently, she does have a point. Oklahoma is 5-2 against Texas in their past seven meetings, including a 45-40 victory last year.
The Sooners will play the Longhorns at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas on Oct. 14.
