Light the Tower! Texas Football kicked off the season with a dramatic win over No. 10 Notre Dame. The UT Tower will have an orange top on Sunday, September 4 in recognition of the victory.

As part of Longhorn tradition, the top of The University of Texas at Austin Tower turns orange to celebrate regular-season football victories.

The dramatic, double-OT, season-opening victory coincided with the beginning of BEVO XV’s reign.
