Texas Longhorns Football History
The Texas Longhorns are a Division I FBS Football team based in Austin, Texas. Initially founded in 1893, the Texas Longhorns football program has an overall record of 936–389–33.
Regarded as one of the “Blue Bloods” in College Football, the Texas Longhorns have been a dominant program for nearly their entire existence.
With over 930 victories, 36 conference titles and four recognized national championships, the Longhorn program has a deep history that has left its mark on the game of football.
The iconic program has also seen two Heisman Trophy Winners, 351 players drafted by teams in the National Football League, and over 100 All-American players throughout the years.
The Texas Longhorns program has always shown fierce pride in their hometown of Austin and in being the best football team in their state ever since they came into existence. By the turn of the 20th Century, Texas had already won 36 of its first 49 games, most of them against schools such as the University of Arkansas, Tulane University, and Louisiana State University, to name a few.
Texas would also develop rivalries over the years with other in-state schools like Texas Christian University, Baylor University, and Texas A&M. But no rivalry is bigger than the one the program has with their neighbors to the north, the Oklahoma Sooners.
Formed in 1900, the match-up once known as the “Red River Shootout” (now known as the Red River Showdown) has annually taken place since 1929 and has been played at the Cotton Bowl stadium inside the State Fairgrounds park in Dallas, Texas since 1932.
Two of the most famous head coaches in Texas Longhorns program history are Dana X. Bible, who led the team from 1936 until 1946, and Darrell K. Royal, who, from 1957 until 1976, won three National Championships. Royal would later be honored by the school, with the 100,000-seat Memorial Stadium being renamed after him in 1996.
Texas has had numerous teams ranked in the Associated Press polls over the years and four National Championship teams. The most dominant team in the program’s history came in 2005, when under head coach Mack Brown, Texas went undefeated at 13-0 and would beat the top-ranked University of Southern California for the Bowl Championship Series title and an undisputed National Championship.
Thanks in part to Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Vince Young, the Longhorns came from behind to beat the Trojans 41-38 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena to seal their perfect season.
