Thinking of coming to my first Texas home game in 2015 or 2016--- Suggestions and tips please!

My parents graduated from UT in the late 1970s but never went to any home UT games. My parents moved to Florida where I was born and raised so I have never had an opportunity to go to a game in Austin. I have always wanted to go to a home game with my Dad (and now my fiance) and would like to explore games for the 2015 or 2016 season.

I graduated from FSU and have been to most of FSU's home games the past 8 years and know tips and suggestions for going to games in Tallahassee. The games early in the season are much hotter and less enjoyable in the Florida heat especially a 12 or 3 PM kickoff.

How hot are the early games in Austin? I'm talking about games in August, September and early October? Do you suggest I go to an easy (hypothetical) game or a harder Big12 rivalry game? Also where do you suggest I look to buy tickets from? Stubhub or through their ticket office? Any suggestions on where to try and sit for the best experience (of course on somewhat of a budget-- I dont want to be spending $200 a ticket)

Thanks for the tips and suggestions and hopefully I will make it to Austin in the next few years!
