Texas To Hold Three Open Practices

Could this be the year that Texas becomes Texas again? Longhorn fans will get the chance to get first-hand looks at the team for themselves during three open practices next week.

Recently ranked No. 15 in the USA Today Coaches' Poll, Texas is slated to hold open practices at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 8, at 4:10 p.m. Friday, Aug. 9 and at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 10. With all of the practices being held at Denius Fields, suggested parking for fans will be in the Manor Garage.

After each practice, selected groups of players will be available to sign autographs as they leave the field. On Thursday, the offensive linemen, defensive linemen and specialists will sign for a limited time. On Friday, the linebackers, running backs and tight ends will take part, and on Saturday, the quarterbacks, wide receivers and defensive backs will take their turn signing autographs.

Times may change, so check MackBrown-TexasFootball.com or follow along on Twitter at @MBTexasFootball for more details. Inclement weather will result in the closing of that day's practice, as there isn't enough space inside.

Texas begins its season on Aug. 31 when New Mexico State comes to Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. Game time is scheduled for 7 p.m.
