The Texas Longhorns have added the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs to their 2019 football schedule, the school announced today.
Texas will host Louisiana Tech at Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin on Aug. 31, 2019. The game will be the season-opener and the first-ever meeting on the gridiron between the two schools.
As a result of adding Louisiana Tech, the Longhorns have moved their previously scheduled game vs. USF on the same date to Sept. 5, 2020. Both the addition of LA Tech and the USF change are dependent on approval from the UT System Board of Regents.
Texas’ only other non-conference opponent scheduled in 2019 and 2020 is LSU. The Longhorns are slated to host LSU on Sept. 7, 2019 and travel to Baton Rouge on Sept. 12, 2020.
Louisiana Tech now has three non-conference games set for 2019. The Bulldogs also travel to Bowling Green on Sept. 14 and later host UMass on Oct. 19.
