DALLAS — Fans from Texas and Oklahoma are arriving for this weekend's Battle in Big D.

More than 96,000 people packed the Cotton Bowl for the game last year; that was a record.

DART took heat for failing to have enough trains to get people to the game. This year, the transit agency has increased capacity — adding buses to take Trinity Railway Express passengers to Fair Park, and re-routing some Red Line trains.

If you plan to take DART to Saturday's game, leave three hours before kickoff.

The Dallas alumni association for UT told News 8 it received tons of complaints last year. This year, there is no mention of DART on its Web site.

OU's alumni group told us it has faith this year will be better.

If you plan to drive to Fair Park, watch where you park. Parking enforcement crews will be out in force to stop illegal parking and illegal towing.

Approved parking lots have city-issued signs or special permits.

And we'd like to invite you to our Victory Park studios outside the American Airlines Center in downtown Dallas early Friday morning to show your support for your favorite team.

Be a part of a friendly Texas-OU pep rally from 5:30 to 7 a.m. Friday and get a chance to be on News 8 Daybreak.

Then watch the big game live on Channel 8 Saturday at 2:30 p.m., or watch it for free on the jumbo high definition screens at Victory Park.
