Texas' season of redemption is finally here.
After a nine-month offseason filled with a bevy of coaching switches, changes in philosophy and a new breath of fresh air in Texas football, the Longhorns are set to take the field at Darrell K. Royal Memorial Stadium to take on Rice in what will be the start of a new era for the Burnt Orange.
Coupled with the launch of the Longhorn Network, a television agreement between the University and ESPN, the season opener against the Owls will be highly anticipated as Texas will emerge as a completely revolutionized program.
Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. Central Time.
Here are some things to look for on Saturday evening in Austin.
