Football Season Checklist

University of Texas at Austin football fans are now less than a month away from watching the Longhorns step onto Joe Jamail Field at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium to take on the North Texas Mean Green to open another hard-hitting, excitement-filled season of Texas Football. With just a few short weeks to prepare, we’ve put together a checklist of the most important tasks to complete before August 30 rolls around.

Head over to the Erwin Center on Sunday, August 10 for the 2014 Texas Football Fan Day presented by Wells Fargo, the ultimate preseason meet and greet.
