Longhorn fans, particularly season ticket holders, got some exciting news this week when The University of Texas announced Friday that two big opponents had been added to the future schedule. Texas will take on a pair of BCS non-conference opponents in 2015 and 2016.

From the official UT press release:

A home and home football series with Pac-10 foe [tag]California[/tag] and Big Ten opponent [tag]Minnesota[/tag] has been scheduled for the 2015 and 2016 seasons, The University of Texas announced Friday. The Longhorns will travel to Minneapolis on Sept. 19, 2015 and to Berkley on Sept. 10, 2016. The Bears will visit Austin on Sept. 12, 2015 and the Gophers will return to Austin on Sept. 17, 2016.

Great job by the Texas athletic department to schedule top quality BCS opponents. Add those games to [tag]UCLA[/tag] in 2010 and 2011 and [tag]Ole Miss[/tag] in 2012 and 2013 and you’ve got some winnable, marquee games against big name programs. Should be fun to watch.
