Texas 37, USC 14 

Sept. 15, 2018 • DKR

In 2017, the Horns rebounded from a disappointing loss to Maryland by coming THIS CLOSE to beating the favored SC Trojans. Some might call it a moral victory, but as encouraging as it was, it still counted as an L.

Because of that, the hype for the Trojans’ 2018 visit to Austin was off the charts. Pregame, Nissan’s Heisman House was on the 40, hosting our own Ricky Williams. Once again Bevo Bold was hoppin’, and a huge crowd migrated from the streets to the stands, ready for a great game.

Boy, did our Horns deliver!

A record crowd—including Trojan-conqueror Vince Young—watched the Horns get win #900 handily. What an amazing day!

Texas 28, Tulsa 21 

Sept. 8, 2018 • DKR

After the disappointing loss to Maryland, the Horns came back in the home opener to beat the Tulsa Golden Hurricane. As mighty winds blow, so did our defense. After shutting out Tulsa in the first half, we gave up 21 points in the second. Thank goodness for Sam & Co. managing to score in the fourth to keep our Horns on top.

The game might not have been the show of power we were expecting, but Bevo Blvd. certainly displayed all that is great about Texas football! With vendors and games and “Longhorn City Limits” music, the pregame party was a fitting celebration of the reunion that is a Longhorns home game.
