It’s the most promising combo since chocolate and peanut butter. This year’s Orange-White Spring Game, the Texas Longhorns’ annual intrasquad football scrimmage at Memorial Stadium, will feature live music by four local acts on two stages as part of the April 21 event at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium.
