Texas confirms Rice series, adds Louisiana Tech for 2019

Posted February 11th, 2016


Texas officials confirmed on Thursday the school has entered into a three-game contract that begins with a 2019 non-conference matchup at NRG Stadium in Houston.

The Owls will then play in Austin in 2021 and 2023.

Texas also added Louisiana Tech as a home non-conference opponent in 2019. That leaves only one hole open in the 2018 schedule for the next four years. The Longhorns play three non-conference games and then nine Big 12 opponents.


Future Texas schedules

2016: Notre Dame, UTEP and at Cal.

2017: Maryland, Central Florida and at USC

2018: at Maryland, USC

2019: Rice at NRG Stadium in Houston, Louisiana Tech and LSU
