Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Red River Rivalry

Rival Team: Oklahoma Sooners

Texas and Oklahoma have a long standing rivalry that goes beyond just sports. The two states have a strong distaste for each other, and there is nothing better than showing your superiority, so make sure to be in attendance when the Longhorns and Sooners meet.

Texas vs Kansas

Rival Team: Kansas Jayhawks

Since the inception of the Big 12, Texas and Kansas have consistently been two of the best teams in the conference. The rivalry peaked in the 2000s with the Longhorns having a 5-7 record against the Jayhawks prior to the 2008-09 season. Matchups between Texas and Kansas are always fiercely competitive, so make sure to get your tickets when the Jayhawks come to Austin.

Texas vs Baylor

Rival Team: Baylor Bears

The Bears have been in the same conference as the Longhorns for a long time, which has helped foster a fierce rivalry between the two schools. The rivalry between these two dates back to 1915 and the Southwest Conference, so don’t miss it when the Longhorns come to town.

Texas vs Texas Tech

Rival Team: Texas Tech Red Raiders

The Texas-Texas Tech rivalry dates back to 1957-58 when the Red Raiders joined the Southwest Conference. Since then, the two Texas schools have played twice every year building an intense rivalry in the process. Texas has gotten the better of Texas Tech since the founding of the Big 12, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be in for a treat when attending a game between these two.

Texas vs Oklahoma State

Rival Team: Oklahoma State Cowboys

Even before the two schools both became members of the Big 12, the Longhorns and Cowboys played on a regular basis. The rivalry was at its best during the early days of the Big 12 when Rick Barnes’s Longhorns and Eddie Sutton’s Cowboys were regularly in contention for conference championships. Things may have cooled down a bit between these two, but you still won't’ want to miss it when the Longhorns and Cowboys square off.
