This entry is the third in our category called “Austin Gems” (see the side bar on the right). These are not your typical tourist attractions that you see on every ‘Top 10 Things To Do In Austin’ list. These are lesser known highlights that we believe every Austinite should do at least once in their lives.
University of Texas Longhorns Football – JUST ANNOUNCED – Practices Open to the Public
If you can’t wait for football season or won’t be able to see any games this year, here is an outstanding Austin Gem opportunity for you. Longhorns fans will have two opportunities to get a first-hand look at the Texas Football team as it prepares for its season opener at Rice on Sept. 4. The two open practices will be on Wednesday, Aug. 11, and Thursday, Aug. 12, from 7-9 p.m. at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. However, if practice is moved to the Indoor Practice Facility (“The Bubble”) at Denius Fields at any point, space limitations prevent the workout from remaining open.
Gates 1, 7, 14, 16, 27, and 28 will open at 6 p.m. and all fans will be directed to the east grandstands for seating. Parking will be available in the Manor, San Jacinto and Trinity Garages.
