UT Football Backstage Tour - Part One

Just yesterday, the college football world was focused on Dallas, Texas for the annual Red River Rivalry. The burnt orange nation migrated North on IH35 out of Austin for the game. (Texas eeked that out luckily) This led to a magical opportunity for Ty and myself.

A family friend (thanks David!) happens to work on a project at the UT Football Stadium and gave us exclusive access behind the scenes while no one else was there. We got to go in the players lounge, see some suites, walk out onto the field and some other amazing places.

Here Ty stands at the top of the ramp that leads out onto the field. This is where the players line up on game day and run through the smoke tunnel onto the field. Pretty awesome.
