Things are big in Texas, especially when it comes to the Longhorns football. With an immense record, an enormous stadium and some widely-known personnel, that saying is no tall tail. Such a large school brings a lot of fans, so it is advisable to book Texas Longhorns football parking spaces in advance instead of trying to find Darrell K Royal Stadium parking spots on gameday.
The Longhorns’ stomping ground is the Darrell K Royal - Texas Memorial Stadium, the sixth largest football stadium in the NCAA. This behemoth was first open to the public in November 1924 with a capacity of 27,000, which over time has ballooned to 100,119. Tens of thousands of cheering fans surround the team with a firm FieldTurf surface below them and a Texas-azure sky way above.
The Longhorns’ record isn’t anything to sneeze at either. Texas ranks No. 3 in the NCAA through December 2012 after winning 71.6% of its games. Texas has also won four national championships, 32 conference championships and three BCS Bowl games.
Of course, the players benefit from some great coaches like Darrell K. Royal. Before he came to Austin in 1957, the team had a rough season at 1-and-9. But Royal worked his magic, going 6-and-4 with a tie in his first year. His candor, patience and skill paid off with three National Championships and a career record of 167-47-5. One of the most legendary games credited to Royal’s tenure was the “Game of the Century” against Arkansas in December 1969. In this bout, No. 1-ranked Texas came from behind to win 15-14, scoring all its points in the fourth quarter.
