2016 Texas Longhorns Season Preview
Charlie Strong’s 2nd full season as head coach of the 2015 Texas Longhorns football team ended with an overall record low 5-7 and was not eligible for a bowl invite. The 2016 season will be a must-win season for Strong as the pressure to bring the Longhorns back to a top college football team grows. Sterlin Gilbert has been brought in as the new offensive coordinator, bringing in an up-tempo strategy. Going into the 2016 season the quarterback position is up for grabs between players, Tyrone Swoopes, Jerrod Heard and Shane Buechele. There has been a lot of excitement built around freshman Buechele this spring, which has set him apart and earned him playing time in the fall. Even though Texas’ offense is young, they should be one of Strong’s best but it will be crucial for their forward passing to improve while maintaining their running game. The Texas Longhorn’s defense tackle is looking thin, resulting in new four-star recruits Jordan Elliot, Chris Daniels and Marcel Southall having to come in ready to play hard to stop the run. With all the young talent this year, the Longhorns have the opportunity to surprise fans by showcasing an improved offense and solid defense. All eyes will be on the first 5 games in the Texas Longhorns 2016 schedule to determine the success of the team and their place in the Big 12. Top games on the Horns schedule will be the season-opening home game against Notre Dame and on the road against the Oklahoma Sooners.

Texas Longhorns Football at DKR Memorial Stadium Address: 405 E 23rd St, Austin, Texas, 78712
The Longhorns play home games at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium which has a seating capacity of over 102,000. There's nothing quite like walking into DKR and seeing the sea of burnt orange and being there to hear the home fans scream out "TEXAS FIGHT!" 100,000 hands in the air doing in the Hook 'Em Horns sign is a one-of-a-kind thing in college football and Austin is one of the best college towns in the country. The Texas Lonhorns home bench is on the DKR Memorial Stadium sideline with sections 1-8. DKR Memorial Stadium parking information is covered in our Longhorns event guide.
One of the biggest games in all of college football, the Red River Rivalry is played in Dallas at the Cotton Bowl between two of the most storied programs in history. The Longhorn and Sooner faithful are split right down the middle of the stadium as they are surrounded by the State Fair of Texas on all sides of the stadium. It’s a can’t-miss for fans of either team and it’s the most unique setting for a football game in the country.
This has been one of the most one-sided rivalries over the years (in Texas’s favor), but the game has been put on hold for a while after the Aggies moved to the SEC. The game has been played on Thanksgiving weekend, and beating the other team is a good gauge on whether or not you had a good season. The rivalry goes back far, as does the vitriol on and off the field.
This is a newer one, though they’ve played each other many times over the years. Texas Tech stung the Longhorns badly in the final seconds of the 2008 contest, ending their hopes for a national title berth. The Horns have mounted big comebacks over the years after falling behind early, making this yearly contest an exciting one.
