yeah, if you can get tickets to the Red River game, you're a lucky S.O.B.
If you really want to secure them, you should just get student season tickets and opt for that option at that time. As I mentioned before, priority for tickets goes like this Seniors-> Grad Students-> Juniors-> Sophomores-> Freshmen, and generally there are enough available that most Sophomores get tickets.
Which leads me to an interesting phenomenon, the fact that this year there are two very well-hyped games on the schedule: tOSU in Austin, and OU in Dallas. You could very well order student season tickets and opt in for the OU ticket (for an additional $85) and be looking at a total bill of around $240 for all 6 home games plus OU. Since football is such a big deal here, you could very easily sell your ticket to either of these games and come very close to paying for the entire season; if you sold both you're probably get somewhere in the range or $300-$500 all told, and actually make a profit. I'm not advocating this, but I'm just throwing this out there for those who might otherwise scoff at buying tickets. However, a note of caution - last year they began to implement print-at-home tickets for students that had their name physically on those tickets. The system was abandoned halfway through due to technical difficulties, but if they work out the kinks I'd assume they would go that route again this year, making your tOSU ticket next to impossible to sell. The OU tickets, however, are not printed by the school, and anyone can use it, so it's always a good investment.
Oh, and in case anyone is wondering, I'll be buying tickets and going to all the games plus OU. I'm too big of a fan to take monetary considerations into account.
