OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – With football season in full swing, many OU fans are already gearing up for OU/ Texas weekend.

Fans can get on the train at any of the stops in Norman, Purcell, Pauls Valley, Ardmore, Gainesville and Fort Worth.
The Heartland Flyer returns Sunday, Oct. 10, leaving Dallas’ Union Station at 2:15 p.m. and arriving in Oklahoma City at 9:27 p.m.
