Notre Dame vs Texas Longhorns Tickets

The momentum is building and excitement is through the roof as the 2016 college football season inches closer. With most games starting the first weekend in September, fans everywhere are gearing up for another thrilling campaign. Opening day often offers less-than-stellar matchups, but there are a few games that will catch the eye of even the most casual fans. One of these games is Notre Dame vs. Texas, and with the Notre Dame vs Texas Longhorns Ticket Guide, you can be on hand to see every snap live. The two traditional powers meet Sunday, Sept. 4 at Darrell K. Royal Memorial Stadium in Austin, Texas. Tickets start at $30.

The fighting Irish and Longhorns have combined for 12 national championships, with Notre Dame winning eight, the last coming in 1988. Texas’ last title came in 2005 under the direction of quarterback Colt McCoy and his prolific offense. Still, the two renowned programs have met just 11 times, though the previous meeting came in last year’s season opener in which the 11th ranked Fighting Irish crushed the Longhorns 38-3. Prior to that, the teams hadn’t met since 1996. Texas last defeated Notre Dame in 1970.

Coached by Brian Kelly, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish Football team was 10-3 last year, falling in the Fiesta Bowl 44-28 at the hands of Ohio State. The Irish have three top-25 finishes in Kelly’s six years at the school. His best season as Notre Dame’s coach was in 2010 when his squad went 12-1 before losing in the BCS title game to Alabama.

After having great success in the early 2000s, the Texas Longhorns Football team has struggled the past few years. Under head coach Charlie Strong, Texas has endured two straight losing seasons, including last year’s 5-7 mark.

Don’t wait to get your hands on tickets to this clash between these two nationally recognized teams. There aren’t many better ways to get the season started.
