Social reaction: Texas fans commiserate after close win over Tulsa, look ahead to USC

Posted September 8th, 2018


Texas just got its first win of the season, but the Longhorns didn’t exactly impress their loyal fans.

After a 28-21 victory over Tulsa in the home opener, fans left Royal-Memorial stadium with a mixture of feeling relief and frustration. But they still had a good time.

In addition to the pregame tailgates, Longhorns fans had a new tradition to check out in Bevo Boulevard — complete with a street parade, live music and autograph sessions. Check out all the sights and sounds of Longhorn game days, brought to you by … you.


Relive the evening in reverse, all the way back to pregame, through the social media feeds of the burnt orange faithful who filled the stands. (And make sure to check out the Longhorn Band tribute to Selena.)
