    Longhorns and Sooners squared off in the batter's box for a good cause Thursday evening in Frisco.

    The Red River Celebrity Softball Game benefits the Lone Survivor Foundation, which provides support to America's wounded service members and their families.

    Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey headlined the Longhorns team, which also included former University of Texas athletes Vince Young, Earl Campbell, Roger Clemens and Ricky Williams, and Navy veterans Marcus Luttrell and Morgan Luttrell.

    The University of Oklahoma team included country music star Toby Keith and former OU athletes Roy Williams, Mark Clayton and Tommie Harris.

    The main event this week — the Red River Showdown — is set for 2:30 p.m. Saturday at the Cotton Bowl.
