“Tuck Fexas”

“Tuck Fexas” might have been coined by Oklahoma Sooners fans at the Texas-Oklahoma Red River Rivalry football games. The term is cited in print from at least 1983.     
See also “Fuck Texas” and “Fuck Y’all, I’m from Texas!”
Urban Dictionary
1. tuck fexas 
A clever and polite way of saying (safe for children) that the Texas Longhorns fucking suck. By switching the first letter of each word you can see that the real meaning is Fuck Texas.
Go Hogs Go, Tuck Fexas! They blow.

2. tuck fexas 
A clever saying used by Oklahomans to show their envy.

here at ou, we call the oklahoma-texas game
ok, that was a little sarcastic, but we do just refer to it as that.  there are a few things to note:

oklahoma comes FIRST.  it is NOT the texas-oklahoma game.
it is often called the oklahoma-texASS game.  (in oklahoma)

the ‘common’ chant is ‘beat the hell out of {ou, texas}’ yelled by both sides all year long.

we also have the famous ‘tuck fexas’  saying, a personal favorite.

‘texas’ is often writen as:
  T   EEEEEE X   X   A   SSSSS  
  T   E     X   X   A A   S   S
  T   E     X   X   A   A S    
  T   E       X X   A   A S    
  T   EEEE     X   A   A SSSSS  
  T   E       X X   AAAAAAA     S
  T   E     X   X A   A     S
  T   E     X   X A   A     S
  T   E     X   X A   A S   S
with the ‘t’ inverted, showing disrespect for everything texas stands for.

As the tee shirt says: “Tuck Fexas”.  Or, “Bevo is sterile”

Sports Illustrated
Expressing hatred for Texas has become a year-round tradition for Oklahoma fans. Many adorn their cars with upside-down Longhorns alongside their Sooners magnets, stickers and flags. We use slogans like TUCK FEXAS or WE MESS WITH TEXAS when referring to our buddies from the south. But possibly the most eloquent summation of the Sooners’ collective sentiment toward Texas comes from legendary OU linebacker Brian Bosworth, who simply says: “Burnt orange makes me puke.”—Aaron Francl

Tuck Fexas Shirts

Yesterday evening, the SA sold Tuck Fexas shirts that were not printed correctly. The t-shirt design company we were using messed up their vowels, and instead of spelling Texas with an A before the S, they spelled it with a U reading “Tuck Fexus”.
