In Texas’ Gobbler Country, an Overlooked Mascot Gets Its Due
The Texas Longhorns have been good at the University of Texas at Austin since the 1930s, but the school is better known for its football program. It’s worth mentioning, but not the focus of their day.
The school’s football team — the Texas Longhorns, who, in case you missed it, play their home games at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium — has had a bit of a run of success over the past few decades. According to the official website, since 1928, they’ve won six SEC titles, five Southwest Conference titles, two National Championships, and are two national championships away from tying Alabama.
The school is currently located on a small mountain overlooking the Rio Grande River known as Gobbler Country.
For the last few years, Texas Longhorns have been the focus of a lot of attention, and rightfully so, as they play football at one of the most beautiful stadiums in the world, and also one of the most iconic stadiums in college football history. But to really appreciate all that Texas has to offer, it’s important to make the trip down I-35 South and to the University’s campus in the city of Austin, where the school’s historic buildings and statues make up a truly remarkable setting.

The University of Texas at Austin is located in the heart of Texas’ south side. For most, it’s an easy drive from the nearest major city, but for those who need a little more time, there is a beautiful drive down I-35 South from the University itself.
I-35 South is a quiet, two-lane road that runs through a variety of towns and neighborhoods, including Highland Park, Austin-Travis, and Austin, providing a unique backdrop to the campus.

The University of Texas is like a giant puzzle, and the pieces of the puzzle are scattered throughout its many places. The first piece, of course, is the campus itself, and like any good puzzle, it’s in good shape. You drive down I-35
