How and where to watch the Longhorns in Austin, TX

Table of Contents

Horns up, Austin — the UT football season starts this Sat., Sept. 3. Dust off your cowboy hat + put on your boots, because we’re giving you the lowdown on everything you need to know before hitting DKR Stadium. 🤘

🏟 First, let’s recap.

Let’s just say the 2021 season was a rough one.

Last year was head coach Steve Sarkisian’s first year with the Longhorns. Texas ended the season with a 5-7 record + suffered its first loss to the Kansas Jayhawks since 2016. The Longhorns’ six consecutive losses toward the end of the season was the team’s longest losing streak since 1956.

🏈 Who’s on the field?

Now, for the good news. Texas got some exciting roster additions this summer, including Southlake-born Quinn Ewers, a freshman transfer from Ohio State. Ewers was the highest-rated recruit in 2021, and will be the new starting quarterback for the Horns.

Looking forward, next season Texas will also gain No. 1 recruit Arch Manning — yes, of that Manning family.

Sarkisian hasn’t yet announced the depth chart for Saturday’s game, but here are some possible outcomes for the starting lineup.

🎟️ Here’s the home game schedule:

  • Sat., Sept. 3 — Louisiana-Monroe
  • Sat., Sept. 10 — Alabama
  • Sat., Sept. 17 — UTSA
  • Sat., Oct. 1 — West Virginia
  • Sat., Oct. 15 — Iowa State
  • Sat., Nov. 12 — TCU
  • Sat., Nov. 25 — Baylor

You can buy tickets online, with prices starting at $55 for select single games. You can also book a range of tailgate packages, which include tickets, tents, tables, and chairs.
