On Saturday, September 22, Texas faced the TCU Horned Frogs on our home turf in DKR stadium. Under cloudy skies and breezy weather, Texas was fired up and ready to take the field, as were the members of the Longhorn Band.
The sisters of Tau Beta Sigma continued their amazing service by taping the field prior to morning rehearsal, helping ensure the band’s marching forms looked perfect! The sisters also continued hall sales, which raise money for the Make-a-Wish Foundation and provide LHB members and their families with awesome band merchandise. During the game, TBS provided water to keep everyone hydrated, and carried medkits in case of an emergency. Overall, TBS had a very successful game day filled with service and fun!
LHB cheered the team onto victory in the stands, and also performed a traditional halftime show featuring Wall to Wall Band and Script Texas, which got the fans and team even more hyped for the second half of the game! Script Texas was first performed in 1957, making the Saturday performance its 61st anniversary.
Texas ended the game by winning 31 – 16 as our very own sisters Jessica Martinez and Jasmine Lelauti lead LHB in playing Taps in One, a version of Texas Fight that is played every time the team wins a football game!
We look forward to sending a travel band to Kansas State this upcoming Saturday and attending the next full band game in Dallas against OU on October 6 for the annual Red River Showdown!
