The Longhorn Network will exclusively air two University of Texas football games during the 2011 season.
The first game is the season opener with Rice from Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium on Sept. 3 at 6 p.m. CT. The second game will be determined later in the season but it will be a Big 12 conference game.
“We are thrilled to be able to bring not one but two games to Longhorn fans this year,” said Stephanie Druley, Longhorn Network vice president, production. “The Texas-Rice game will be an exciting first for the network and demonstrate how we will provide the most comprehensive coverage of Texas football that fans have ever experienced.”
The Longhorn Network launches on Aug. 26., eight days prior to the season opener.
