Fans sample crazy food before Red River Showdown

For 110 years, the Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners have waged battle on the football field in one of college football’s all-time greatest rivalries.

But the actual game is just a small part of the festivities in Dallas.

The Texas State Fair has been going on since 1886, and though the rides and concerts are always big draws, nothing comes close to the different types of foods on display.

Established in 2005, the Big Tex Choice Awards names eight finalists for food each year, and the 2016 edition didn’t disappoint. In traditional southern fashion, it came as no surprise that seven of the eight foods are deep fried.

Winner: Best Taste

Winner: Most Creative

Other finalists:

The fair runs from Sept. 30 to Oct. 23.
