The Red River Shootout is just a few weeks away with the usual I-35 traffic jam all the way down from Oklahoma City soon to get on motorists nerves.

Amtrak is offering a better way for Sooner fans to get to Dallas and that's with a 15% savings on the full adult fare on the Heartland Flyer. Witness the epic game in person when you ride the Heartland Flyer Big Game Train to Dallas to see Texas and Oklahoma square off at the Cotton Bowl Stadium on Saturday, October 7, 2023.

Use discount code V573 when you book online at Valid for travel on the Heartland Flyer (AM Train 821 on Oct. 6, 2023) and (PM Train 822 on Oct. 8, 2023) only.
