Our Scout Network partners at Stadium Journey have released its annual Top 100 Stadium Experiences of 2016, and the Texas Longhorns made the list.
Of the 761 stadium experiences reviewed by the writers in 2016, Darrell K. Royal - Texas Memorial Stadium ranks at No. 52 in the nation.
"The atmosphere is summed up easily with the motto, “Come Early, Be Loud, Stay Late, Wear Orange,” and throughout the years Texas Longhorn fans have seemed to follow it. The 'Come Early' is seen throughout downtown Austin on game day as tailgaters take over the rolling hills of the forty-acre campus around Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium, which covers both sides of I-35. The tailgate area is filled with wood-burning smokers, cowboy hats, and women wearing boots with dresses."
