The Texas Longhorns took on the Iowa State Cyclones at Darrell K. Royal Texas Memorial Stadium on Nov. 17. This game was the final home game for senior members of the Longhorn Band. Members of the Longhorn Alumni Band also joined us for their annual Band Day.
The sisters of Tau Beta Sigma helped LHAB the Friday before the game by checking in and registering Alumni Band members. The TBS executive committee also served donuts, kolaches and coffee to alumni on Saturday morning prior to their practice in the Bubble.
Our service continued as we taped the field in the Bubble to assist alumni in learning their halftime drill. At the game we also provided water, gatorade and medkits to current and former band members.
LHB seniors were recognized on the field during our pregame performance as they made their own "Senior T" in front of the rest of the band.
At halftime, LHB performed a 1920's classic, "Sing, Sing, Sing." Following their performance, LHAB took the field for their performance of a modified "Wall-to-Wall Band." LHAB and LHB joined together on the field for a combined performance featuring over 1,000 current and former Longhorn Band members. This performance featured "Amazing Grace" and "The Longest Day," two of the songs that LHAB will perform during their trip to Normandy, France in June for the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
The Longhorns ended up winning the game 24-10 against the Cyclones and went on to beat the Kansas Jayhawks on Friday, 24-17. We look forward to our next performance in Arlington, Texas at AT&T Stadium as the Longhorns take on the Oklahoma Sooners again for the Big XII Championship Game!
