Hard Hits in Texas

College Football in the Lone Star State


The Southland Conference, established in 1963, features universities from Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas, and fields most major sports. Although it wouldn’t be considered a major conference by most college football standards, the Southland Conference still yields competitive football teams regularly finish with winning records.

Texas travelers staying at any one of Best Western choices this fall will be in prime position for college football. From Beaumont to Huntsville to Nacogdoches – Texas has plenty to offer from the Southland Conference.

A program like Sam Houston State continues to shine in the state of Texas. Located in Huntsville, the Sam Houston State Bearkats feature top accolades like the 2011 American Football Coaches Association Coach of the Year, Willie Fritz.

Head to Nacogdoches, the home city of Stephen F. Austin State University, and visit Homer Bryce Stadium this fall for exciting college football action. While you’re in the area, explore the Nacogdoches Historic Town Center, or the Stephen F. Austin Mast Arboretum.

Lamar University is found in Beaumont. A charming city, Beaumont is home to the Fire Museum of Texas – a great stop for the family before all the festivities of the college football game day experience. Once game day does roll around, head to Provost Umphrey Stadium and cheer on the Lamar Cardinals.
