Texas Longhorns Tickets
Texas Longhorns tickets better deliver big things in 2013 or coach Mack Brown could be looking for a new job next season. The Horns have taken a step back since they reached the BCS Championship Game in 2009. They missed out on a bowl berth in 2010 and haven’t sniffed a spot in the Bowl Championship Series the past two seasons. To make things worse, Texas was embarrassed in their annual Red River Rivalry showdown against Oklahoma last season and also suffered losses against West Virginia and Kansas State.
But things are looking up in Austin for the 2013 college football season. Expectations, as usual, are sky-high, and many pundits believe the Longhorns are the favorites in the Big 12 conference. Texas is loaded with talent and experience all over the field, but the improvement of quarterback David Ash will be the biggest factor in whether or not Longhorns tickets live up to their full potential.
Ash emerged as the Texas starter last season, but was inconsistent and battled injury problems throughout an up-and-down sophomore campaign. Ash passed for 2,699 yards with 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He’ll need to improve on those numbers in 2013.
Texas faces an extremely difficult schedule. The non-conference slate features games at BYU and at home in Texas Memorial Stadium against an improving Ole Miss team out of the SEC. The Big 12 slate isn’t any easier, with difficult road games at West Virginia and Iowa State. But, per usual, the Longhorns annual meeting in Dallas with the Oklahoma Sooners will go a long way in determining who wins the Big 12.
Last season, it was the Sooners, who got the best of Texas, routing the ’Horns 63-21. You can bet Texas will have revenge on their mind this season, making Oklahoma-Texas tickets all the more popular.
Overall, Texas football tickets are always one of our most popular college football tickets. This season certainly won’t be any different. The Longhorns are loaded and poised to make a run back to prominence. Buy Texas Longhorns tickets and come check it out for yourself.

The Eyes of Texas are upon Longhorn football tickets, as Mac Brown’s ultra-talented squad looks to defend its national title and Big 12 Conference Championship. Brown will have to replace the irreplaceable in dynamic quarterback Vince Young, who almost single handily led the Horns past USC in the 2006 BCS National Championship Game at the Rose Bowl. Texas also suffered the losses on the defensive side of the ball, including All-American cornerback Michael Huff. But the cupboard is far from empty. In Austin, the Longhorns no longer rebuild, instead they reload. That’s why Texas football tickets are one our most desired commodities here at ABCTickets.com.
After finishing in the top six in polls the last five seasons, the Longhorns enter the 2006 NCAA college football season with a nation-best 20-game win streak. They’ll have 14 returning starters to help keep that streak alive. Sophomore running back Jamal Charles did his best Cedric Benson/Rickey Williams imitation last season. With his blinding speed, Charles kept defenses honest and prevented them from focusing on Young solely. His 80-yard burst against Oklahoma opened the floodgates for the Longhorns’ rout of their biggest rival. Senior tailback Selvin Young, who has suffered through an injury-plagued career, will provide some much-needed depth in the Texas backfield. Wide out Billy Pittman, a former prep quarterback, will be another important offensive weapon, as the Longhorns look to move on without Young.
Along with having to replace stars on both sides of the ball, Texas also will have to navigate through a brutal schedule that includes a huge non-conference showdown with Ohio State on Sept. 9 in Austin. Last year, the Longhorns snuck past the Buckeyes in Columbus, Ohio. The victory propelled Texas to the national title. And of course, there’s the annual Red River Shootout with archrival Oklahoma at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. The Horns ended a six-year skid against the Sooners, with a decisive rout in last year’s Red River Shootout. Always a tough ticket, ABCTickets.com specializes in locating Texas-Oklahoma tickets. This year’s game kicks off on Oct. 7.
The ’Horns hooked the entire college football nation last year. Now, they’re back for another ride through the Big 12 en route to what fans in burnt orange hope is a trip to the Orange Bowl, the site of the 2007 BCS National Championship Game.
