Ready to rumble: Longhorns and Tigers involved in a skirmish ahead of a top-ten clash

Posted September 7th, 2019


The LSU-Texas game has yet to kick off, but fireworks have already been set off at Royal-Memorial Stadium.

Ahead of one of the season’s highly-anticipated match-ups, some LSU and Texas players had to be separated during warm-ups. A few Tigers reportedly drank from water bottles on UT’s sideline. Defensive backs on the Texas roster contributed to the pregame trash talk by wearing their “There’s Only One DBU” shirts during warm-ups.

The Longhorns and Texas saved any physical altercations for the game. LSU and Texas are ranked sixth and ninth in the AP’s football poll.
