Texas has played home games on Thanksgiving weekend every year since Texas A&M left for the SEC. Before that, A&M was a traditional Thanksgiving weekend opponent. There were some years when Baylor was the opponent, either on Thanksgiving or the Saturday after the holiday.

A quick scan of past UT football schedules shows no out of state trips for Thanksgiving weekend in UT football history.
