SAN ANTONIO – The Texas Longhorns and Texas State Bobcats have reached an agreement to play football in 2026.

The game will be played on Sept. 5, 2026 in Austin. It marks the first time in school history that the Bobcats will play a football game in Darrell K. Royal Memorial Stadium.

The Bobcats and Roadrunners will meet this season in San Marcos and resume their series in 2023 in San Antonio. All games until 2031 will alternate locations.
