Two UT games to air on Longhorn Network

Two Texas football games will air exclusively on the Longhorn Network this season thanks to a programming agreement with Fox, ESPN announced Tuesday.

The Longhorns' home game against Rice game will air at 6 p.m. Sept. 3. In addition, the network will also air a Big 12 game to be determined.

Texas leads the all-time series with Rice, 70-21-1, including a 41-8 mark at home.

Fox, which holds the Big 12's cable rights, granted a limited waiver to allow ESPN to shift the games from ABC to Longhorn Network this season.
