Texas conversations ‘ongoing’ for game in Mexico City

|

With news that a college football bowl game could be heading to the land down under, the Texas Longhorns could be the next team to join the international fun.

For the Longhorns, the game would come south of the border.

During the Big 12 spring meetings in Phoenix, Texas athletic director Steve Patterson told Dennis Dodd of CBSSports.com that the university is “still having conversations” about a game in Mexico City, Mexico.

While some Longhorns fans might not like the idea of taking a game away from Darrell K Royal–Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin, it could be a great decision by the school.

Not only would a game in Mexico City increase the Longhorns’ global imprint, but there would be plenty of money to be had.

It will be interesting to see if the talks progress — since Patterson has been interested in a game in Mexico City since taking his job — and it is definitely going to be something to watch.
