The Longhorns will honor veterans in the game against the Mountaineers. Texas Athletics announced on Nov. 3 the game would be the team's annual "Veterans Recognition Football Game." According to UT, every year either on or near Veterans Day, the Longhorns community remembers and shows its appreciation for veterans in a long-standing tradition honoring former Texas students and military members.
The football team played their first game in what was then called Texas Memorial Stadium on Nov. 8, 1924. The UT student body chose the name in honor of the 198,520 Texans who fought in World War I and the 5,280 who lost their lives, according to Texas Athletics.
Then, 53 years later in 1977, the stadium was rededicated to veterans of all wars. In 1996, the stadium was renamed Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium to honor UT's legendary and all-time winningest head coach.
The UT marching band will also be absent from the final two home football games because of a dispute over "The Eyes of Texas" song, officials announced this week.
And be sure to catch the highlight breakdown and full game analysis after the game on KVUE News at 10 p.m.
