Texas' 2019 football schedule is front-loaded with tough games, but the second half might be a breeze.
Last year the Texas Longhorns came close but were unable to win the Big 12 title, falling short to arch-rival Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship Game. But Tom Herman's team shocked the college football world with a big upset of Georgia in the Sugar Bowl to cap a 10-4 season.
This season the expectations will be even higher as the Longhorns bring in a first-rate recruiting class that includes two five-star wide receivers.
Texas' 2019 football schedule won't require the team to leave the state of Texas too often though. On top of the team's six home games, they will have two neutral-site games at other Texas venues, and two more games against in-state opponents. Only their games against Iowa and West Virginia will force them north of the border.
Here's a look at Texas' entire 2019 football schedule:
Aug. 31: vs. Louisiana Tech
Sept. 7: vs. LSU
Sept. 14: vs. Rice (at NRG Stadium in Houston)
Sept. 21: vs. Oklahoma State
Oct. 5: at West Virginia
Oct. 12: vs. Oklahoma (at Cotton Bowl in Dallas)
Oct. 19: vs. Kansas
Oct. 26: at TCU
Nov. 9: vs. Kansas State
Nov. 16: at Iowa State
Nov. 23: at Baylor
Nov. 29: vs. Texas Tech
The Longhorns have byes on Sept. 28, after the Oklahoma State Big 12 opener, and on Nov. 2, between the TCU and Kansas State games.
