One of the giants of college football, the Texas Longhorns program was founded in 1893 and ranks third in the country in all-time wins including four national titles, and two Heisman Trophy winners, Earl Campbell and Ricky Williams. With a massive, passionate fan base, some of the best traditions in the world of sports (See: Big Bertha, Smokey the Cannon and a steer named BEVO) there is nothing like a Texas home game.
Opened in 1924, Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium has been the Longhorns home ever since. With a seating capacity of more than 100,000, DKR is one of the biggest stadiums in the country. Named for Darrell K Royal, the Texas coach who led the Longhorns to three National Championships over a Hall of Fame career.
Since taking over in Austin in 1998, Mack Brown’s Longhorns have been bowl eligible in 13 out of 14 seasons, won two Big 12 Conference championships and, in one of the most exciting Rose Bowls in history, defeated the USC Trojans for the National Championship in 2006.
Following a three-year dip, Mack Brown and the Longhorns are looking to get back into the national championship picture. With 19 returning starters including quarterback David Ash coming back after a 9-4 season and a victory over Oregon State in the Alamo Bowl, Brown believes the Longhorns are about ready to make a run.
In Austin, one of the hottest cities on the planet (you know, if you like live music, world-class cuisine and all-around good times), game day is all kinds of fun. Get huge savings on tickets to see the Texas Longhorns at DKR and enjoy one of the great sporting experiences you’ll ever have.
