Texas and Oklahoma State are underway on ABC in a pivotal Big 12 showdown and Darrell K Royal - Texas Memorial Stadium is packed at kickoff.

Well, except for the student sections.

The Longhorns' student sections inside the stadium are mostly empty as their team kicks off against the Cowboys.

Texas is apparently having some issues with wristbands.

"Student sections empty 12 mins before kickoff for Oklahoma State b/c students having trouble getting needed wristbands for entry," Chip Brown tweeted.

That's not what you want to have happen in a pivotal conference game where being at home should be a major crowd advantage.

Hopefully the students can get into the stadium soon.
