Texas-Oklahoma it ain’t.
But the University of Texas at Dallas promises the start of a brand-new athletic rivalry during this month’s homecoming celebrations. The chosen sport: oozeball, a sort of volleyball played in knee-deep mud.
In case you’re wondering, no, UTD doesn’t have a football team.
On Oct. 23, UTD will sponsor an intramural oozeball tournament. Then, at 6 p.m., UTD’s champions will take on a squad from the hated University of Texas at Arlington.
No word yet on the early Vegas line.
