The Texas Longhorns have a 6-3 record for the 2020 season.
AUSTIN, Texas – It’s official: The Texas Longhorns play the Colorado Buffaloes at the Valero Alamo Bowl in San Antonio. The game begins Tuesday, December 29th at 8 p.m. on ESPN.
This is the second year in a row Texas is returning to play at the Alamo Bowl. On their last appearance, the Longhorns beat the Utah Utes 38-10. The team has played in the Alamo Bowl five times, four times since 2012.
This was a hurricane season for the Longhorns that ended in a canceled final and almost no chance of making the college football playoffs. With three conference losses, UT was also excluded from the chance to compete in the 2020 Big 12 championship.

However, there were several options for the bowl game that they would be invited to. KVUE predicted that the most likely choice for UT would be either the Cheez-It Bowl or the Texas Bowl.
The Alamo Bowl had the choice between the teams before the Cheez-It Bowl or the Texas Bowl and invited the Longhorns.
This is Texas ’57. Bowl game appearance, the second most popular in the country after Alabama. The Longhorns are 30-24-2 all-time in bowl games, with a 3-0 mark under head coach Tom Herman and a 3-1 record in Alamo Bowl appearances.
The Longhorns currently have a 6-3 record for the 2020 season and the Buffaloes are 4-1. After the Big 12 enemies, this is the 19th time in school history and the first meeting since 2009. Texas leads the all-time series with an 11: 7 record.
Tickets for the game are already on sale.
