On Thursday, Texas Longhorns football announced the addition of three future home games against Group of Five opponents, including the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks, the Wyoming Cowboys and the neighboring Texas State Bobcats, who Texas hasn’t played since 1930.
The future schedules break down as follows:
- Sept. 3, 2022: Texas hosts Louisiana-Monroe.
- Sept. 16, 2023: Texas hosts Wyoming.
- Sept. 5, 2026: Texas hosts Texas State.
The Longhorns have a history competing against each program.
Most recently, Texas beat Wyoming in 2012 by a score of 37-17, making the Longhorns fifth win over the Cowboys since 1974. In five meetings, Texas has outscored Wyoming 163-44.
In 2009, Texas bested Louisiana-Monroe in their lone meeting, 59-20.
And, as mentioned above, the Bobcats and Longhorns have only met on the gridiron once in 1930, when former President Lyndon B. Johnson was an undergraduate at the San Marcos school, then known as Southwest Texas State Teachers College. Texas won 36-0.
The opponents round out the Longhorns’ future non-conference schedules, Texas noted in the release. However, it doesn’t speak to the program’s future strength of schedule.
“The contests with Alabama in 2022 and 2023, as well as Ohio State in 2025 and 2026, are part of a high-profile collection of home-and-home series that started with LSU traveling to Austin this past year and a return trip to Baton Rouge in the upcoming year,” officials said in the announcement. “Other featured future matchups with iconic college football programs include Michigan (2024 and 2027), Georgia (2028 and 2029) and Florida (2030 and 2031).”
