Texas
is the 2nd-ranked NCAA Division I
NCAA Division I
FBS program in college football history with 891 wins, after passing Nebraska during the 2016 season. As of the end of the 2016 season, the Longhorns' all-time record is 891–359–33 (.709). Only the University of Michigan
University of Michigan
has won more games and a greater percentage of games played than Texas,[15] 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 the Longhorns have since returned to prominence in college football, finishing in the top six of the AP and coaches' polls in 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2008 and 2009. The University of Texas
Texas
team plays home games in Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium which has a seating capacity of 100,119.[16] Renovations began on the stadium November 14, 2005, two days following the last home football game of the 2005 season. The improvements were completed before the 2008 football season, and included additional seating[17] and the nation's first high definition video display in a collegiate facility nicknamed "Godzillatron."[18] The University completed a $27 million expansion and renovation to the south end zone facilities in August 2009 which added 4,525 permanent bleacher seats and changed the playing surface to FieldTurf. With the new permanent bleacher seating section added behind the south end zone and the total remodeling of the north end zone completed in 2008, the stadium's official capacity now stands at 100,119. This was surpassed when 101,357[19] saw #3-ranked Texas

in 1998. From 1998 through the 2008–2009 season, the Longhorns had a 124–27 win-loss record. In his first six years at Texas, Brown had a winning record but he had not managed to win the Big 12

conference or to lead the Longhorns into a Bowl Championship Series

game. He was often lauded for his recruiting while being criticized for failing to win championships. That changed with the 2004 Texas

Longhorns football team who played in the 2005 Rose Bowl

against the Wolverines of the University of Michigan. The game was the first meeting between the two storied teams and the Longhorns' first trip to the Rose Bowl. In a classic game that featured five lead changes and three tie scores during the course of play, the Longhorns defeated the Wolverines 38–37 on a successful 38-yard field goal by place kicker Dusty Mangum

as time expired. It was the first time the Rose Bowl had ever been decided on the closing play, and it earned the Longhorns a top 5 finish in the polls. Three ex-Longhorns from the 2005 Rose Bowl

Brown followed up the strong 2004 season on the field with an extremely successful 2005 recruiting season by securing the top-ranked recruiting class (the 2005 recruiting season is for players entering the University in Fall 2006). With the exception of Cedric Benson, Derrick Johnson, and Bo Scaife, Texas

returned most of their key players from 2004–2005, including red-shirt Junior Quarterback Vince Young. The 2005 Texas

Longhorns football team was given a pre-season No. 2 ranking (behind defending National Champions University of Southern California) by Sports Illustrated

magazine, and was also ranked second in the AP and USA Today coaches' pre-season polls. They maintained those rankings throughout the entire 2005–2006 season. Texas

and USC ended up winning out their seasons and faced each other in the National Championship, which Texas

Features in the special edition included a story on Vince Young's Glory Days by author Tim Layden, as well as a story dissecting How the Rose Bowl was won by Austin Murphy. The issue was on sale nationwide alongside the regular edition of the magazine, which also featured the Rose Bowl on the cover. 2006[edit] The 2006 Texas

Longhorns football team hoped to repeat as national champions. The Texas

Longhorns returned several offensive (7) and defensive (7) starters from their national title team, but quarterback Vince Young

elected to go the NFL which left freshman Colt McCoy

as the starting quarterback. The Longhorns 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.[21][22][23] The Longhorns lost that game, but then defeated Rice, Iowa State and Sam Houston State by a combined score of 145–24. Then they defeated 14th-ranked Oklahoma 28–10 in the Red River Rivalry. The Longhorns lost their last two regular season games to Kansas State (45–42) and Texas
Texas
A&M (12–7). A victory against A&M would have clinched the Big 12

South Division title for the Longhorns. As a result of the loss, Oklahoma won the division and played in the Big 12

conference teams selected the Longhorns to play against unranked Iowa who had placed 8th in the Big Ten conference. With Colt McCoy

Longhorns football team began play on September 1, 2007. Texas
Texas
entered the 2007 season ranked third 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
ESPN
writer Mark Schlabach had the Longhorns ranked eighth;[24] Rivals.com has them at ninth.[25] College Football News[26] and Real Football 365[27] both had the Longhorns ranked third. The Longhorns come into the season ranked fourth in both the Coaches' Poll[28] and AP Poll.[29] The Longhorns failed to make good on that ranking, however, dropping to number 20 in the BCS standings after losing to conference foes Kansas State, Oklahoma, and Texas
Texas
A&M. 2008[edit] The 2008 Texas
Texas
Longhorns football team entered the season with freshmen athletes at many positions, no definite starting running back and appeared to lack talent at key positions. The Longhorns were projected to post a 9–3 during the 2008 season, and were ranked Nos. 11 and 10 in the AP Poll and the USA Today Coaches Poll, respectively.[30] Despite doubt surrounding the season, the Longhorns rallied to an 8–0 start, including a four game in-conference stretch against opponents ranked in the top 12 football teams in the country. During that stretch, the Texas

Big 12
South, ending a string of nine 10 or more win seasons. The only signature win of the season was a 20–13 upset in Lincoln over Nebraska in their final in-conference match-up. 2011[edit] In 2011 the Longhorns finished the season 9–4, 5–4 in Big 12
Big 12
play, in a tie for third place. They were invited to the Holiday Bowl where they defeated The University of California, Berkeley. Quarterback Garrett Gilbert was named the starter for the Longhorns August 29 in their season opening against Rice University. However, on September 12, it was announced that Gilbert was being moved to the second-string quarterback behind Case McCoy and David Ash who would be sharing the starting position for the duration of the season. On September 20, it was announced that Gilbert underwent successful surgery on his shoulder and will be out the remainder of the season. Knowing that his future in Austin looked bleak, Gilbert sought an unconditional release, which was granted to him on October 5.[33] Gilbert finished his degree at Texas

before moving to Southern Methodist University in Dallas

to continue his football career.

history on April 12, 1998, Rick Barnes
Rick Barnes
left Clemson University to take over a Longhorn program coming off of a losing season and "in disarray."[51] Former head coach Tom Penders
Tom Penders
had resigned after a scandal involving his unlawful release of player Luke Axtell's grades to the media. Longhorn players Axtell, Chris Mihm, Gabe Muoneke, and Bernard Smith had met with Texas

athletic director DeLoss Dodds "to say that they had lost faith in Penders and his program."[51][52] Despite playing with just seven scholarship players for the majority of the 1998–1999 season – and opening the season with a 3–8 record – Barnes engineered one of the greatest mid-season turnarounds in school history. The Longhorns won 16 of their final 21 games, posting a 13–3 record in conference play and winning the school's first regular season Big 12 Conference

Sweet Sixteen for the first time since the 1996–97 season, and for only the third time since the expansion of the tournament to 64 participants in 1985. The 2003 Longhorn basketball team matched the school record for most basketball victories in a season with their 26–7 mark and advanced to the NCAA

compiled a 25–8 overall record in 2004 and advanced to the Sweet Sixteen round for a school-record third consecutive year. The four senior starters on the 2004 team graduated as the winningest class in school history (98 wins) to that point. In 2006, the Longhorns recorded the program's first 30-win season (30–7), claimed a share of the Big 12 Conference

Texas
A&M University.[74][75] However, in football, Texas
Texas
considers the Oklahoma Sooners
Oklahoma Sooners
to be a more significant rival. According to Bill Little, the Longhorns' assistant athletic director, the rivalry against A&M is "based on respect", while the rivalry against Oklahoma is "based on anger".[76] Other teams have also been considered to be rivals of the Longhorns in various sports.[77][78][79][80] This list includes several other colleges in Texas, such as Texas

Christian, Baylor, Rice,[81] Texas Tech,[82] and Houston.[83] Arkansas Razorbacks[edit] See also: Arkansas– Texas

football rivalry Texas
Texas
is also one of the biggest rivals of the University of Arkansas[84] 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.[85][86] Oklahoma Sooners[edit] See also: Red River Showdown Texas
Texas
has a long-standing, bitter rivalry with the University of Oklahoma. The football game between the University of Texas
Texas
and Oklahoma is commonly known as the "Red River Shootout" and is held annually in Dallas, Texas, at the Cotton Bowl. This name has come to refer to the two schools' contests in other major team sports as well. Since 2005, the football game has received sponsorship dollars in return for being referred to as the "SBC Red River Rivalry"[87] (changed to AT&T Red River Rivalry
Red River Rivalry
in 2006 when SBC changed its corporate name to AT&T), a move which has been criticized both for its commercialism[88] and its political correctness.[89] In recent years,[when?] 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–Oklahoma game was ranked third.[90] Texas

A&M football rivalry The annual football game with Texas

A&M usually took place on the weekend of Thanksgiving each year, though it was moved to the first weekend in December in 1994 due to A&M's TV restriction during probation. In either case, the Texas- Texas
Texas
A&M game was the last regular-season contest for each team. The Longhorns lead the series, 76–37–5. 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,[91] which began as a two-year trial program and has continued ever since. Essentially, each time the two schools meet in a sport, the winner of the matchup gets a point. In sports wherein the teams meet twice one half point is awarded for a victory. If more contests than two occur, such as in baseball, the series winner gets one point. At the end of the year, the school with the most points wins the series and receives a trophy. In the event of a tie the current holder retains the trophy as did A&M after the '08–'09 season. Texas

many traditions which associated with athletics events, especially football. Some Longhorn traditions include:

Bevo – the school mascot, a live Texas
Texas
longhorn steer present for football games and other special events. It is a common misconception that the mascot's name came from Texas
Texas
students altering a 13–0 branding a group of Aggies gave the steer.[citation needed] Bevo was received his name several months before the Aggies could vandalize the steer in a Texas
Texas
alumni magazine. His name came from the slang term for a steer that is destined to become food, beeve, and in a common practice for the 00's and 10's, an "O" was added at the end, similar to Groucho or Harpo Marx.[101] Big Bertha – Claimed by the university to be the world's largest drum, however Purdue University makes a similar claim about their drum.[citation needed] "The Eyes of Texas" – the school song, traditionally led by the Orange Jackets on the football field, sung to the tune of "I've Been Working on the Railroad" Hook 'em Horns

After national championship victories, windows are lighted in the main building to display a large number "1".[104] Read the rest – Students from primarily Texas
Texas
A&M University usually taunt Texas
Texas
students by threatening to "saw off" the horns of Bevo, citing the Bible verse Psalms 75:10: "I shall cut off the horns of the wicked." As it turns out, that's not the entire verse, and as a response, Texas
Texas
students tell Aggies to "read the rest". The rest of the verse is "but the horns of the righteous shall be lifted up." This appears on shirts, usually with "Hook 'Em" written underneath. Their other primary rivals, the Oklahoma Sooners, generally prefer to show their disdain by inverting the "Hook 'Em" hand sign or Longhorn logo. This gesture has become more common among fans of other teams as well, especially in the Big 12, when they play against Texas.[citation needed]

Merchandise[edit] For nine straight years (2005–2013), Texas
Texas
was listed as the number one Collegiate Licensing Company
Collegiate Licensing Company
client in regards to the amount of annual trademark royalties received from the sales of its fan merchandise.[4] Schools that are not members of Collegiate Licensing Company however are not ranked in the listing.[105] Money from merchandising sales goes to the university, as opposed to being earmarked specifically for athletics programs.[4] TV channel[edit] Main article: Longhorn Network On January 20, 2011, the UT athletic department announced plans to launch a 24-hour channel devoted entirely to UT sports and academic activities at the University of Texas.[106] This channel, a joint venture with ESPN, takes advantage of a clause in new Big 12 Conference television contracts allowing Texas
Texas
a bigger share of revenues than the conference's other members; in turn, it was part of the agreement to keep the conference together amidst a full-scale plan by the Pac-10 Conference to raid Big 12
Big 12
members. (The Pac-10 only gained one Big 12
Big 12
school, Colorado). Both sides hoped to launch the channel for the 2011–2012 academic year, but needed carriage commitments first. Banners with the name " ESPN
ESPN
Texas" were visible during segments of SportsCenter
SportsCenter
and other programs originating from Sundance Square
Sundance Square
in Fort Worth, Texas
Texas
in the week prior to Super Bowl XLV. The channel was launched in August 2011 as the Longhorn Network. Before its launch, the network had controversial plans to air high school football games, an institution throughout the state of Texas. Currently, the state's governing body for public high school sports, the University Interscholastic League, prohibits live game telecasts on Friday nights. It had also been speculated that any telecast on the new channel, regardless of when it aired, could violate NCAA
NCAA
rules against unfair recruiting inducements.[107] This was especially an issue for Texas
Texas
A&M; in fact, the plans for the network to air high school games directly led to A&M's decision in July, 2011, to leave the Big 12
Big 12
for the SEC.[108] The Big 12
Big 12
then approved a temporary rule in August 2011 banning the planned high school telecasts,[109] and within two weeks, the NCAA
NCAA
ruled that no school or conference network could broadcast high school games, ending that particular controversy.[110][111] Boosters[edit] The University of Texas
Texas
is known to have a big group of powerful boosters that help support a third of the budget of the athletics department.[112] The main people known to be involved are:
