Texas changes future football schedule


Texas athletics announced changes to the future football schedule on Tuesday. 

The Longhorns have moved their home matchup with the University of Central Florida originally set for Sept. 9, 2017 to the same day in 2023 at the request of the Knights. Texas and UCF have faced off twice, first in Orlando in 2007 and then in Austin in 2009. Both games resulted in Longhorn victories. 

Texas has filled UCF’s slot in the schedule with a home game against San Jose State. The Longhorns and Spartans have never faced one another. Texas will kick off next season with a home game against Maryland on Sept. 2 and will wrap up its non-conference schedule on Sept. 16 with a road game against USC.
