Texas has reached a home-and-home agreement to play Gonzaga in men’s basketball beginning next season in Austin, according to a UT spokesman.
The Longhorns will play the Zags at the Erwin Center on Nov. 13. They would then play a return game in Spokane, Wash., during the 2021-22 season.
Texas is 0-3 against Gonzaga in the all-time series, and all three have been neutral-site games.
The Gonzaga matchup is not expected to be the home opener, however the full non-conference schedule is not finished yet.
Texas is scheduled to play in the Maui Invitational in Nov. 23-25. Coach Shaka Smart’s club should host a Big East team as part of the Big 12/Big East Challenge. UT is likely to be a road team in next season’s Big 12/SEC Challenge.
Typically, the full non-conference schedule is completed in early summer. The Big 12 portion of the schedule is usually announced in early fall.
