Time set for Texas’ return to Royal-Memorial Stadium

Posted October 3rd, 2016


Texas has announced that its home game against Iowa State will kick off at 6 p.m. on Oct. 15. It will be Texas’ first home game since Sept. 10 as two road trips to California and Oklahoma State, a neutral-field contest against Oklahoma and a bye week separated UTEP and Iowa State on the Longhorns’ calendar.

The 14th meeting between Texas and Iowa State will be televised on Longhorn Network.

Texas is 2-2 this season with both of those wins being recorded at Royal-Memorial Stadium. Iowa State (1-4) is 2-11 in its all-time series with the Longhorns, and the team last won a game in Austin in 2010. The Cyclones, though, are coming off of last year’s 24-0 beating of Texas.
