History

The University of Texas has traditionally been considered a college football powerhouse, having earned four National Championships, including one to conclude the 2005-2006 season. From 1936 to 2006, Longhorn football teams have finished their seasons ranked in the top ten of at least one of the two major polls 25 times, or more than one-third of the time, according to the Associated Press. The Longhorn football program experienced its greatest sustained success under the guidance of legendary head coach Darrell Royal, who led the Longhorns to three National Championships (in 1963, 1969, and 1970) during his twenty-year career with the Longhorns (1957-1976). The 1969 Longhorn football team was the last Division I team to win a national championship without an integrated roster.

The Longhorns rank as the third most winning program in college football history, in terms of both total wins and win percentage.[3] As of the end of the 2006 season, the Longhorns' all-time record is 810-312-33 (.716). Only Notre Dame and the University of Michigan have won more games and a greater percentage of games played than Texas,[4] which recorded its 800th victory with the Longhorns' 41-38 win over the USC Trojans in the 2006 BCS National Championship Game at the Rose Bowl. During the late 1980s and early 1990s, the program was somewhat less successful, but Texas has since returned to prominence in college football, finishing in the top six of the AP and coaches' polls in 2001, 2002, 2004, and 2005.

Texas opened the season with a win at home against North Texas. Their second game, against Ohio State, was one of the most anticipated college football games of the regular season.[10][11][12] The Longhorns lost that game, but then defeated Rice, Iowa State and Sam Houston State by a combined score of 145-24. After defeating number 14th ranked Oklahoma Sooners 28-10 in the Red River Shootout, it appeared that the Longhorns were a near-certainty to once again play in the Big 12 Championship game for a chance to enter the Bowl Championship Series. However, in Texas' next game, against unranked Kansas State, Colt McCoy suffered a neck stinger injury while rushing for a touchdown, and in the Lone Star Showdown rivalry game against unranked Texas A&M, he was knocked out of the game by a helmet-to-helmet tackle. Partially due to these injuries, Texas lost both games, 45-42 and 12-7 respectively, their first consecutive losses in over five years. As a result, the Oklahoma Sooners won the division and played in the Big 12 Championship game. The Alamo Bowl, with the 5th pick of Big 12 conference teams selected the Longhorns to play against unranked Iowa who had placed 8th in the Big Ten conference. McCoy was able to return at quarterback, and the Longhorns narrowly defeated the Iowa Hawkeyes 26-24. The University of North Texas (UNT) is located in Denton, Texas. ...

The 2007 Texas Longhorn football team began play on September 1, 2007. Texas entered the 2007 season ranked fourth in the all-time list of both total wins and winning percentage. They were ranked in the Top 10 by numerous pre-season polls. For instance, a pre-season ranking by ESPN writer Mark Schlabach had the Longhorns ranked eighth;[13] Rivals.com had them at ninth.[14] College Football News[15] and Real Football 365[16] both had Texas ranked third. Texas started out 4−0, but with sloppy playing, edging out 4 unranked teams. Texas came particularly close when beating unranked UCF, 38−35. Texas then suffered losses to Kansas State (41−21) and Oklahoma (28−21). Texas then surged back into form, winning 5 games in a row. At 9−2, they were poised to gain a BCS bowl birth. However, a 30−38 loss to Texas A&M dashed these hopes. Currently, the Longhorns are 9−3.

Rivalries

The University's biggest rival historically is Texas A&M University,[17][18] although UT considers the Oklahoma Sooners to also be important rivals in football, especially in recent years due to the prominence of both programs.[19] Other teams have also been considered to be rivals of Texas in various sports.[20][21][22][23] Texas Longhorns athletics programs include the extramural and intramural sports teams of The University of Texas at Austin. ...

2006 Red River Shootout with yellow arrow indicating the crowd split at the 50 yard line

Texas has a long-standing rivalry with the University of Oklahoma. The football game between the University of Texas and Oklahoma is commonly known as the "Red River Shootout" and is held annually in Dallas, Texas at the Cotton Bowl. Dallas is used as a "neutral site" since it is approximately mid-way between the two campuses. The stadium is split with each team having an equal number of supporters on each side of the 50 yard line. Texas state flags fly around the Longhorn end of the stadium and Oklahoma state flags fly around the Sooner end.

The Red River Shootout originated in 1900, while Oklahoma was still a territory of the United States, and it is the longest-running college-football rivalry played on a neutral field.[24] Since 2005, the football game has received sponsorship dollars in return for being referred to as the "SBC Red River Rivalry"[25] (changed to AT&T Red River Rivalry in 2006 when SBC changed its corporate name to AT&T), a move which has been criticized both for its commercialism[26] and its political correctness.[27] The University of Texas holds its annual Torchlight Parade during the week of the Red River Shootout.[28] Types of administrative and/or political territories include: A legally administered territory, which is a non-sovereign geographic area that has come under the authority of another government. ... Commercialism, in its original meaning, is the practices, methods, aims, and spirit of commerce or business. ... Political correctness is the alteration of language to redress real or alleged injustices and discrimination or to avoid offense. ...


In recent years, this rivalry has taken on added significance, since both football programs have been highly ranked and compete in the same division of the Big 12 conference. In 2005, the Dallas Morning News did an opinion poll of the 119 Division 1A football coaches as to the nations top rivalry game in college football. The Texas-OU game was ranked third.[29] The Dallas Morning News is the major daily newspaper serving the Dallas, Texas area. ... A sports rivalry is intense competition between athletic teams or athletes. ...


The game typically has conference or even national significance. Since 1945, one or both of the two teams has been ranked among the top 25 teams in the nation coming into 60 out of 65 games. As of January 2007, Texas leads the all-time series 57-39-5, with a 45-35-4 edge in Dallas, and currently has a one-year losing streak. Four of the last six showings featured one of the participants in the Bowl Championship Series National Championship Game (2000, 2003-2005), including national titles won by Oklahoma in 2000 and by Texas in 2005.

Texas A&M

The Texas/Texas A&M rivalry has given rise to several stereotypes on both sides: Aggies are generally portrayed as ignorant conservative farmers, while Longhorns are portrayed as highbrow and arrogant city-slickers.[31] The annual football game with Texas A&M takes place the day after Thanksgiving each year. The Longhorns have a record of 73-36-5 against the Aggies. The art of diplomacy, painted by Jean Leon Gerome Ferris (1863-1930). ...


In an attempt to generate more attention for the rivalry in sports other than football, in 2004 the two schools started the Lone Star Showdown,[32] a trial two-year program. Essentially, each time the two schools meet in a sport, the winner of the matchup gets a point. At the end of the year, the school with the most points wins the series and receives the Lone Star Showdown trophy. Year 2004 (MMIV) was a leap year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Aspects of the rivalry include:

  • Each school mentions the other in its fight song (Texas with "and it's goodbye to A&M" in Texas Fight,[33] and the Aggies singing about Texas for essentially the entire second verse of the Aggie War Hymn[34])
  • The football series between the two universities is the third longest running rivalry in all of college football.[35] Since 1900, the last regular season football game is usually reserved for their matchup.[36]
  • Each school has elaborate pre-game preparations for the annual football clash, including the Aggie Bonfire[37] and the Hex Rally[38]
  • Texas has a unique lighting scheme for the UT Tower after wins over Texas A&M.[39]
  • In the past, mischief has preceded the annual game, such as "kidnapping" each other's mascots.[40][41]

Others

Many other schools consider UT among their biggest rivals. This list includes most other colleges in Texas, but especially Baylor[43] (located just up Interstate 35 from UT), Texas Tech,[44] and Houston.[45] Texas is also the biggest rival of the University of Arkansas[46] which may be attributed to their long tenure as the two eponymous state schools of the former Southwest Conference, or to the 1969 game between the two, which decided the national championship in favor of the Longhorns.[47][48] Texas Fight is the official fight song of the University of Texas at Austin and was written by Colonel Walter S.

Texas maintains a somewhat one-sided series with the Rice Owls. The series, which began in 1914, is the fourth oldest (by number of games) in Texas history.[49] The two schools were once conference foes in the Southwest Conference[50][51] and the rivalry has continued despite the usual mismatch in ability on the field. The Longhorns' 28 consecutive victories from 1966–1993 represent the sixth longest single-opponent winning streak in college football. The disparity was alluded to by President John F. Kennedy when he compared the challenge of going to the moon to the challenge faced when Rice played Texas.[52] Since the formation of the Big 12 the two teams have met intermittently. Texas won the most recent match-up, in the 2007 game, 58–14.[53] Lovett Hall William Marsh Rice University, commonly called Rice University and opened in 1912 as The William Marsh Rice Institute for the Advancement of Letters, Science and Art, is a private, comprehensive research university located in Houston, Texas near the Museum District and adjacent to the Texas Medical Center. ...
