Next fall, Texas will be hosting Spartans instead of Knights.
Texas announced on Tuesday that San Jose State will replace Central Florida on its 2017 football schedule. San Jose State will travel to Texas on Sept. 9, 2017, which was the date the Longhorns had reserved for Central Florida. Texas also has a home game against Maryland and a road trip to USC on its 2017 schedule.

Texas and Central Florida will instead meet on Sept. 9, 2023. Texas said the scheduling change was made at the request of Central Florida, which has added Maine to next year’s schedule. (Central Florida will now have a bye during the season’s second week).
This will be the first meeting between Texas and San Jose State. A member of the Mountain West Conference, San Jose State is 1-3 this season.
