UT football and tailgates
It's no question that Texans love supporting their Longhorn football, inside and outside the stadium. Occupancy at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium has been reduced to 25%, holding about 18,000 fans rather than the usual of a little over 100,000. Floor markings have been placed to encourage social distancing, as well as hand sanitizer stands around the stadium. Masks are also required.
Due to COVID-19, tailgating has been banned on and around campus. However, Ryan Lepper, owner of Horn-Ball Texas Tailgaters found a safe way to go around the university ban. His group is the only group with approval to tailgate.Read more
