Isn't it sweet? The Texas Longhorns are headed to the Sugar Bowl to take on Georgia for the first time since 1984. The Longhorn Band is excited to join our team on this New Year's journey to New Orleans.
Prior to the Sunday bowl announcement, the Longhorns played a historical rematch against the Oklahoma Sooners in the Big XII Championship. This was only the third time in the rivalry's history that the Longhorns and Sooners have played twice in the same year -- the last time this happened was in 1903.
While the Longhorns fell short in the Big XII Championship at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, we still get to hold on to the coveted Golden Hat trophy. At least until the next time we meet the Sooners in October 2019. Making it to the Big XII Championship was definitely an exciting step in rebuilding the Texas football program, with the last Big XII Championship appearance being nearly a decade ago in 2009.
The Beta Gamma sisters continued their service to the band during the championship game by passing out water and providing medkits on the buses. We look forward to the upcoming holiday break and BTHOGeorgia! Hook 'em Horns!
