Alex Briseño

The Longhorns released four kickoff times for the 2018 football season, including that for a highly anticipated matchup with the University of Southern California on Sept. 15.

Texas’ season opener against Maryland on Sept. 1 will kick off 11 a.m. at FedEx Field. The game will be aired on FS1.

The Longhorns return to Austin for their home opener the following week when Tulsa comes to Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium for a 7 p.m. kickoff on Sept. 8., to be aired on the Longhorn Network.

Texas stays home the ensuing week for its biggest nonconference game of the year. The USC Trojans will come to Austin for a primetime game at 7 p.m., to be aired on FOX.

The final kickoff time released as of yet is Texas’ matchup with Kansas. The Longhorns will return to Lawrence for the first time since a heartbreaking overtime loss to the Jayhawks two years ago. The game is slated for an 11 a.m. start on Nov. 23 and will air on FS1.
