The Texas Longhorns will be a regular visitor to the Dallas-Fort Worth area in 2014. In addition to the traditional October game with Oklahoma at the Cotton Bowl, Texas will play UCLA in the Cowboys Classic at Cowboys Stadium on Sept. 13, 2014.
The Longhorns and Bruins will be the sixth Cowboys Classic. The series started in 2009 in the first-ever regular season game at Cowboys Stadium when BYU upset Oklahoma, 14-13.
Last year, TCU beat Oregon State, 30-21, in the Classic and this year LSU beat Oregon, 40-27, in one of the biggest matchups of the season.
