2006 Longhorn Football Watching Info
In the last few years we've screened nearly every televised Texas game here in London, either at Bodeans BBQ in Soho, or at the Sports Cafe.
All are welcome: children, relatives, and even fans from other teams, but please read about THE VOW OF SILENCE for non-live games, to be followed regardless of how many pints are consumed. Please don't let a friend of yours from a rival school ruin the game for others.

Come Early, Be Loud, Wear Orange and enjoy the game with us!
|Game Date/Time||Victim||UKTE viewing||Notes|
|2nd Sept, 11am CST||North Texas||LIVE.
Sat 2nd Sept 5pm
|Texas 56, North Texas 7. McCoy looked good as Texas showed a balanced offence and a dominating defense to see off the Mean Green.|
|9th Sept, 7pm CST||Ohio State||LIVE.
Sat 9th / Sun 10th 1am
|Ohio State 24, Texas 7. Conservative offense, key turnovers and some big lapses in the secondary were exploited by the Buckeyes.|
|16th Sept||Rice||n/a||Texas 52, Rice 7. As expected the Longhorns rebounded with an obliteration of the Rice Owls.|
|23rd Sept 2.30pm CST||Iowa State||Bodeans Soho,
Sun 24th Sept, 12.30pm
|Texas 37, Iowa State 14. Thunderstorms in Austin and techy issues in London didn't stop us watching the Longhorns start their defense of their Big XII crown.|
|30th Sept||Sam Houston State||n/a||Texas 56, SHSU 3. We rested those with slight injuries and gave the back-ups a good run out, but still an opponent we shouldn't be playing.|
Sat 7th Oct 8.30pm
|Texas 28, OU 10. No panic from McCoy after a poor offensive first half. Aaron Ross has a career day, and we keep Peterson relatively quiet, as Texas win comfortably and stake their claim for a BCS berth.|
|14th Oct||Baylor||Bodeans Soho
Sun 15th Oct, 12.30pm
|Texas 63, Baylor 31. A record setting 6TD night from McCoy obscures a poor performance by our patched up secondary, as we allow a season high 31 points.|
Sat 21st Oct, 5pm
|Texas 22, Nebraska 20. A rollercoaster of a game in tough conditions. Again a slow starting conservative offence and some poor tackling in the secondary put Texas in a hole. 3 missed kicks from Johnson, brought walk-on kicker Ryan Bailey in to kick a last minute winning FG.|
|28th Oct||Texas Tech||n/a||Texas 35, Texas Tech 31. Colt McCoy lead the Longhorns to the second biggest comeback in school history after we gave up 21 first quarter points. Our pass defense now ranks a worrying 112th in the nation...|
|4th Nov||Oklahoma State||Sunday 5th Nov, 12.30pm
|Texas 36, Okie State 10. 510yds of offence and the most complete game by the defense all year as Texas was determined to break the trend of the last two games.|
|11th Nov||Kansas State||Sun 12th Nov, 12.30pm
|Kansas State 45, Texas 42. We lost McCoy to a shoulder injury and the whole team fell apart. All the things we looked to have put right against Okie State went horribly wrong again, as the Wildcats cashed in on countless mistakes on defense and special teams.|
|24th Nov, 11am CST||Texas A&M||LIVE Fri 24th Nov, 5pm
|Texas A&M 12, Texas 7. The Aggie running game dominated, and the Texas offense looked woefully out of sorts, as a very painful loss to A&M ruins our Big XII Championship and BCS hopes.|
|30th Dec||Alamo Bowl
|TBA||We mustn't let the disappointment of being out of the BCS lead to a lack luster performance come bowl time, as has happened before.|
