Longhorn Sports

In case you haven’t heard, Longhorn basketball is rolling right now. The Horns are near the top of the rankings and are even pushing for the #1 spot. You might be wondering how tickets work for students.

In the fall, you can order a Longhorn All-Sports Package or LASP. For about sixty-five dollars a year, you get access to every Longhorn sports event. Baseball, volleyball, soccer, tennis, swimming, softball, and the rest of our sports are covered. As you probably know, football and basketball games are really popular on campus. Sometimes there is more demand for student tickets than there are seats.

For football season, you can get a season ticket for an extra seventy dollars. That guarantees you a ticket to every game, in the same seat, and with the same group of friends. Trust me when I say that it’s worth every dollar. Even if you’re not a big sports fan, football games make for a great Saturday with friends. Getting a season ticket also gives you the option of purchasing a ticket for the Red River Rivalry game in Dallas.

Seats for basketball games aren’t quite as in demand, but students can be turned away for major games. You can also buy a pass for basketball, called a Stampede pass, that gives you priority seating. If you think you’re going to attend most of the basketball games, I would really advise getting one.

At Texas, we take our school spirit very seriously. In the Fall, students look forward to home football games. If you think you’re not a big sports fan, you might see that change after a couple semesters here.
