Kudos to the Texas Longhorns who have continued to add difficult non-conference games to their schedule. On Monday, Brett McMurphy broke the news that the Texas Longhorns and Georgia Bulldogs have scheduled a home-and-home series for 2028 and 2029.
Texas, Georgia add home/home series; 2028 at Texas, 2029 at Georgia

Unlike some Big 12 schools (cough, Baylor, cough Oklahoma State, cough), Texas, despite its struggles over the past decade, has been willing to schedule the Big boys. UT is coming off a home-and-home with the USC Trojans the past two seasons. And coming up, Texas will host the LSU Tigers next season in September and goes to Baton Rouge in 2020. It’s also important to note that these games are all home-and-home series and not neutral site locations, which means the local economies get a nice boost and is a far better atmosphere than what the neutral sites provide.
In 2021, the Longhorns will travel to play the Arkansas Razorbacks in an old-school SWC showdown. Then, in 2022 and 2023 they have a home-and-home scheduled against… the Alabama Crimson Tide.
After that’s here are the premier non-conference match ups for the Longhorns.
2024: @ Michigan Wolverines, vs South Florida Bulls
2025: vs. Ohio State Buckeyes
2026: @ Ohio State Buckeyes
2027: vs. Michigan Wolverines
2028: vs. Georgia Bulldogs
2029: @ Georgia Bulldogs
So while there is plenty to give the Texas Longhorns a hard time about, non-conference scheduling is not one of them.
