College Football in Texas
The Hits are Hard in the Lone Star State
The landscape of college football is indelibly marked by the state of Texas. Numerous schools pepper the Lone Star State – some with rich, championship pedigree, and others still blazing their own trail.
Texas cities like Austin, Lubbock, Houston, and Waco all feature major universities with premier college football programs. Smaller cities like Prairie View, Abilene, and Nacogdoches feature smaller programs on the rise, all helping to build a competitive, exciting balance in the world of Texas college football.
Major programs like the University of Texas Longhorns, and the Baylor University Bears highlight the Hill Country region of Texas. Visit Austin during the fall and witness a sea of Longhorns fans clad in burnt orange ascend upon Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium.
With multiple national championships, an array of individual player awards, and a slew of players who made it to the NFL, the Texas Longhorns are one of the most decorated college football programs in Texas.
Texas A&M, another staple of college football in Texas, is set in College Station. Along with being the home of Texas A&M, College Station is friendly and charming little suburb of nearby Bryan, and is dubbed as the “Heart of Research Valley.” Texas A&M supporters visiting the area pour into Kyle Field on game-day to cheer on the Aggies.
There’s no lack of thrilling college football action awaiting you on your Texas visit. Get out, explore the state, and let the college game day experience pervade your Texas travels.
