STILLWATER, Okla. — The BCS campaign between Oklahoma and Texas is heading for the sky.

University of Texas students and fans have raised around $7,000, part of which has paid for a pilot to fly over Stillwater before Saturday’s game between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.

The plan is for a plane to fly a banner during the ESPN’s “GameDay” pre-game show (7 to 9 a.m. PDT) with the inscription “45-35″ — the score of Texas’ victory over Oklahoma on Oct. 11.

Texas is second in the BCS rankings, followed closely by Oklahoma at No. 3.
