Why only go to the LSU game on Sept. 7 when you can be at every home game?
That is a question many Texas football fans are contemplating as the university announced on Thursday that season tickets are now on sale for the 2019 Texas football season.
Texas retained more than 97 percent of its 2018 season ticket holders, according to the university, and estimates that as many as 6,000 new season ticket accounts have been opened as fans are hoping for another 10-win season on the Forty Acres.
The big showdown with the Bayou Bengals, more commonly referred to as LSU, is likely going to draw the attention of College GameDay and folks like myself, who will be traveling down for the weekend. The university ticket office is dangling that carrot by noting that the only way you’ll be able to get a seat through that game would be a season ticket package, though the secondary market still serves a purpose in that regard.
If you’ve got the money, you might as well do it. In addition to LSU, Texas will host Louisiana Tech (Aug. 31), Oklahoma State (Sept. 21), Kansas (Oct. 19), K-State (Nov. 9), and Texas Tech (Nov. 29).
