The controversial Longhorn Network, the joint television venture between ESPN and the University of Texas, is also available for streaming online for the die-hard fan on the go. While you're perusing their reading material on the website, listen to "Get Hooked: Official Music of the Texas Longhorns," available on iTunes.
The University of Oklahoma Sooners are on the top of the Associated Press Top 25, Coaches' Poll and CBS Sports 120. But, this team doesn't only excel on the field: They're taking names when it comes to social media. With active Facebook and YouTube pages -- not to mention a Twitter for almost every school team -- it's easy to stay connected. The school also supports AT&T text alerts for breaking team news and a very in-depth website where you can play Oklahoma trivia and look through scrapbooks of the school's sports history.
