Now that Texas has overtaken the College polls, I’m finally doing my first front runner article. It’s pretty obvious that a Texas student would want to tailgate at their own school but what about for us visitors?
I for one have visited the city of Austin (yes I know they play in Dallas) and even if you’re not a fan of the Longhorns you have to appreciate some of the qualities about the school.
With that in mind, here are 8 solid reasons you would want to tailgate at the University of Texas.
They Are Number One
The most obvious reason. After the upset this past weekend it’s evident you’d want to party at this school. Any team that is ranked number one is sure to be a madhouse on game day. And that means lots of alcohol, lots of craziness, and plenty of stories to tell the next day.
Sure, it’s a little scary but come on. Any team that has fans like this is OK in my book.
Are the Longhorns the only team that has cheerleaders wearing chaps? If so that’s amazing. If not, who cares? Look at these ladies.

Well the rivalry didn’t let anyone down this weekend. And it probably won’t in the future. If there’s one reason to head down to Dallas once a year it’s the Red River Rivalry. The game originated in 1900, while Oklahoma was still a United States territory and the Oklahoma campus was still in Oklahoma Territory. Over 100 years of history right there.
The Longhorn is a Badass Logo
You have to admit this is a pretty damned tough logo.
Sporting about the most football of football names, Colt is showing the nation why this team is as good as it is, and why he might be destined for the NFL. What a dreamboat!
Come on. When this guy went to your school? You have to be proud. The biggest pot smoker in the history of the NFL and one of the hottest cities for young people. There can’t be a coincidence.
The City of Austin
Austin is by far one of the funnest places I’ve been to in the U.S. If you ever have the chance to go down there I’d highly recommend it. Hell even if you miss the game in Dallas, just stick around, there’s plenty to do down there.
