Texas to open '10 season at Reliant Stadium

Texas will not open the season at home for the first time since 1995, instead opting to make their 2010 debut vs. Rice at Reliant Stadium in Houston on Sept. 4. Kickoff is slated for 2:30 p.m. CT, and the game will be broadcast on ESPN.

Texas has a 61-21 mark on the road and at neutral sites since coach Mack Brown's arrival in 1998. The Longhorns have never to Rice under Brown (8-0), and lead the all-time series, 69-21-1.
