Al Branch, Executive Vice President, took his turn at a dip in the
OC pond as Neil Arter, Dean of Students, stood by and held a towel so
he could dry off.
This is the sixth year of a fight that has raged on between Branch
and Arter over which team will win the annual Red River Shootout. Arter
took his own dip last year (click here
to watch) and was extremely pleased to watch from the shoreline
following OU’s victory over Texas, snapping a two-year losing streak.
Branch, a huge Texas fan and MBA graduate, also served OU cake to the students in the cafeteria following the swim.
