Texas vs Oklahoma Tickets
One of the biggest games in all of college football, The Red River Showdown 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 bucket list game for fans of either team and it’s one of the most unique settings for a football game in the country.
Texas vs Texas A&M Tickets
This game was a staple to watch for all college football fans, but the game has been put on hold since the Aggies left the Big 12 for the SEC. The game was played on Thanksgiving weekend each year and beating the other team made your season, no matter the results on the rest of your schedule. The rivalry goes back far, as does the vitriol on and off the field.
Texas vs Texas Tech Tickets
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 Texas' 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.

2018 Texas Season
Following an up-and-down first year for head coach Tom Herman, the Texas Longhorns will look to return to their perch atop the Big 12. Texas' last conference title came in 2009, meaning if it doesn't win the Big 12 this coming season there will be at least a decade between conference championships for the program for the first time since they won the Southwest Conference in 1942 after a 12-year wait. The good news for the Horns is quarterback Sam Ehlinger will return as the presumed starter after showing glimpses of exceptional playmaking ability as a true freshman, notably in the Longhorns' narrow losses to USC and Oklahoma. However, the defense will have to replace key players lost to the NFL, such as Poona Ford, Malik Jefferson and DeShon Elliott.

Texas Longhorns in the College Football Playoff, Bowl Games and Big 12 Championship
The Texas Longhorns rank in the NCAA top 3 in bowl appearances all-time with more than 50, having won over half of them. Without a doubt one of the most recognized college football programs in the nation, the Longhorns have multiple Big 12 championships since joining the league in 1996. They’ve also etched their name into national championship lore with claimed national titles in 1963, 1969, 1970 and 2005. The Texas Longhorns are always a threat to reach the College Football Playoff and will look to bring a fifth title home in 2018.
Texas Club 28C and 29C
The absolute best seats at DKR are in the Texas Club - sections 28C and 29C. Straddling the 50-yard line, these comfortable chairback seats have the best views of any club seat and get you access to the Texas Club Hospitality Area. This area is air-conditioned, has an all-you-can-eat buffet and a full bar. The unbelievable views, comfortable chairs and club access make Texas Club 28C and 29C the best seats in the house.
Lower 4 and 5
Fans more interested in view than comfort should check out sections Lower 4 and 5. Located directly behind the Texas bench, these sections are equipped with metal chairbacks starting in row 6 and are often shaded for the second half of day games. If rain is in the forecast, sitting in rows 53-78 will put you under the cover of the overhang and help you stay dry. Tickets in Lower 4 and 5 are some of our most popular.
Lower 16 and 17
One of the best values at DKR is the north end zone, where we recommend Lower 16 and 17. These seats are typically 75 percent cheaper than premium lower level seats and provide a unique experience. The UT Band enters the field through a tunnel under Section 16 and sits close by, making the atmosphere in these sections loud and exciting for UT fans. After a Texas win, the team runs to this corner to sing the Eyes of Texas. Experiencing this up close is unforgettable.
