It’s the long-awaited return of Longhorn Football and the big debut of Coach Sark at home! There are still tickets available and you can take the whole family early to enjoy Bevo Blvd, which is a giant pregame street party, now with carnival rides, that has been called a “mini state fair.” Here’s what’s new for 2021:

  • Fans can soar down Bevo Blvd on a 180-foot zip line!
  • Try your luck at Hook ‘Em Ring, a giant-sized version of “Ring on a string”
  • Children can enjoy the new Texas Longhorns-branded inflatable slide and games
  • Test your kicking skills at the new Field Goal Challenge
  • Show off your touchdown dance skills and share them on social media at the H-E-B Endzone Dance Off
  • Enjoy live mural activations by Austin’s best street artists
  • Gear up with the largest assortment of Longhorns gear ever at the new “A Selection As Big As Texas” Pop-Up Shop featuring unique products rotating each game.

And Shakey Graves will be performing live at Longhorn City Limits on the LBJ lawn! That opens at 11 a.m. Check out all the details here.
