Through the voices of James Street, Darrell Royal, Steve Worster, and more, LHN follows the Texas Longhorns on their path to winning their second National Championship in school history. 1969 debuts at 7 p.m. CT Friday, Aug. 23 on LHN.

Texas GameDay and Texas GameDay Final Set for Ninth Season
Texas GameDay and Texas GameDay Final, Longhorn Network’s signature pre- and post-game shows, return Saturday, Aug. 31, when the Longhorns open their season on LHN against Louisiana Tech. Texas GameDay begins two hours prior to kick-off and Texas GameDay Final wraps up LHN’s game day coverage with post-game analysis immediately following each game. The Texas GameDay roster includes Ricky Williams, Jordan Shipley, Michael Griffin and Dan Neil, along with host Lowell Galindo and reporter Alex Loeb.
New this year, the Texas GameDay set will be placed outside the west exterior of Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium for home games, taking in the sights and sounds of Bevo Blvd., the action-filled pre-game street party. After the first hour of the show, the Texas GameDay team will move to a field set inside DKR with exclusive sideline access as they continue their pre-game analysis ahead of kickoff.
