    Many fans who were at the Rangers playoff game Sunday night also attended some of the other big games North Texas had to offer.

    Those fans say it's been a weekend they'll never forget.

    Of the thousands of fans decked out in Rangers jerseys at the game, many of them wore something extra -- a Dallas Cowboys hat; or a Texas Longhorns T-shirt, for example.

    "This is the best sports weekend anyone has had. Ever," said Alex Pinder.

    On Saturday, Pinder was at the Cotton Bowl and watched his underdog Texas Longhorns beat Top 10-ranked Oklahoma.

    Sunday night, he was confident about another underdog victory.

    "I'm living the dream. Best sports weekend of my life,' he said. "Tonight the Rangers gotta bring it too. Get the brooms out! We're sweeping them!"

    Michelle Dishman’s also wearing twin Texas shirts -- one for the Rangers, the other for the Cowboys game she attended just hours earlier.

    "It is my dream. Lived here all my life. So yeah, it’s been a great day," Dishman said.

    It was about 15-minute walk between the two stadiums. Dishman was bummed the Cowboys lost, so she said she's waving the rally towels extra hard at Globe Life Park.

    "I'm happy, excited, ready for Rangers baseball to continue," she said.

    Like Dishman, Chance Harris also did the Cowboys-then-Rangers exacta. He said he’s on cloud nine.

    "It’s real thrilling. The excitement in here, the energy in here, is great," he said. "I wish the Cowboys would have won, that would have been good. But as long as the Rangers get a sweep, I’ll take it."

    "You can feel it. There’s something in the air. You can feel it. It’s happening tonight. Playoff baseball. October baby!" Pinder said.

    That energy wasn't enough to secure a Division Series win, unfortunately. After a 5-1 loss to the Blue Jays Sunday night, Game 4 is Monday afternoon in Arlington.
