Serendipity Sundays Pregame Thrills: Unforgettable Moments for Cousins

If you're a devoted Longhorn fan who tuned into Friday night's showdown against Texas Tech, you're undoubtedly basking in the glory of Austin's exuberant celebration following the resounding 57-7 victory.

This triumph not only served as sweet redemption for last year's upset by Texas Tech but also solidified the Longhorns' dominance on the field. 

The top of the UT Tower shined with burnt orange lights Friday, November 24 to celebrate Texas Football’s victory over Texas Tech.

Having acquired two #1 jerseys with “Worthy” on the back for Hudson and Beckett at the beginning of the season, it turned out to be a timely investment, in light of the team's recent triumph. The crowd always chants “Go Worthy” because of the performance of Xavier Worthy, the third-year wide receiver who moves with lightning-like speed throughout every game.

     

The pre-game festivities buzzed with excitement my granddaughters, Hailey, Maggie, and their cousins Hudson and Beckett. The anticipation and energy leading up to the game set the stage for what turned out to be game to be remembered!

Unsurprisingly, the Longhorns asserted their dominance over the Red Raiders, securing a coveted spot as the No. 7 team and earning a berth in the Big Twelve Championship. The upcoming clash at A T & T Stadium in Arlington, TX, against either Oklahoma State or Oklahoma, promises to be a defining moment for the team.

As we savor this victory, it's important to acknowledge the significance of this game in the broader context of the Longhorns' journey. This win signifies more than just a triumph over a conference rival; it marks the end of an era as Texas bids farewell to the Big 12 and prepares to join the SEC in the 2024 season. The annual series with the Red Raiders, spanning 64 consecutive years, concluded with this memorable victory.

Hi Jeff Masich-Scottsdale AZ Associate Broker,MBA,GRI ,

It was a REAL win and one they deserved this season. They have a lot of depth and letting the players play down the line proved what talent they have.

First off, and you already know this, but I love all the pictures of your family that you always share with us!  I am not a devoted Longhorn fan, although I did enjoy seeing them beatdown the Red Raiders, haha.  My college team had a similar result against our in-state rival and I was thrilled!

Good morning Dorie. While the University of Florida Gators are in a rebuilding stage. I welcome the addition of the University of Texas to the SEC, otherwise known as the NFL development league. Guess we will be fans of different teams in the future. Enjoy your day.

Dorie Dillard Austin TX LOL, Dorie. I know all about football and used to follow professional football. I just know nothing about college ball. My university disbanded its team after my freshman year.

Hi Dorie,
There is a lot of shifting taking place in the world of college conferences. The PAC-12 will only have 4 teams left next year. It will be interesting to see where those teams end up.
