Texas Longhorns Basketball: UT to Play UCLA at Reliant Stadium on Dec. 8

Kabongo and the Horns will take on a retooled Bruins team in Reliant next year.

Per FOX Houston's Mark Berman, the Texas Longhorns will play the UCLA Bruins at Reliant Stadium in Houston on December 8. It's great news for Houstonians who are tired of seeing all the good football games going to Dallas.

This year's tilt should be a great one. Not only should Texas be better with Myck Kabongo staying and Cameron Ridley coming, but UCLA will also be a team to watch next year with stud recruits Shabazz Muhammad and Kyle Anderson headed to Westwood. Texas beat UCLA 69-59 in Los Angeles last year in a game that was watched in person by about 42 people (attendance estimate). The upcoming game in Houston should draw quite a few more than that.

For those of you who were fortunate enough to attend the Final Four at Reliant Stadium last year (or the two regionals played there prior), you know that the basketball crowd noise absolutely dies in that cavernous setting. Regular Erwin Center patrons will feel right at home.

The court is also quite far away from the seating; even front row 50-yard line seats still see the game from afar. Translation: buy the best tickets possible.

Reliant Stadium is set to host the Final Four again in 2016, so expect quite a few basketball events like this one between now and then.
