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.
