Hi local Longhorns! We are a local chapter of the Texas Exes, the alumni association for The University of Texas, consisting of members living in and around the Pittsburgh area. Our mission is to connect and unite local Texas Exes while promoting and celebrating our alma mater.

You don't need to be an official Texas Ex to join us, just have a love for UT or simply Texas!

Unfortunately, Fox and Hound does not carry the Longhorn Network. As a result, the game watching party for this week is canceled.

The UT Rugby Team will be in Philadelphia at the College Rugby Championship at PPL Park June 4-5. Only the top 16 teams in the nation are invited and this is our first invite. Tickets can be bought at UT Rugby.

Rugby Sevens features seven players per team playing on the same size pitch as a 15’s match and offers non-stop action where speed, high scoring and athleticism dominate the competition. The format allows for constant entertainment with each match split into two seven-minute halves and a new match starting about every 20 minutes. Rugby Sevens will be an Olympic sport starting in 2016. Rugby Tournaments are known for their carnival-like atmosphere where the fans have as much fun as the players. Come out and support the team! The tournament, which will be broadcast live nationally on NBC, is scheduled to take place at PPL Park in Chester, PA on Saturday, June 4 and Sunday, June 5. Versus will also air live and taped coverage throughout the weekend.

Calling All Basketball Fans

09.14.10

Posted by Sidd Shenoy at 10:15PM

Greetings from the New York chapter! Here in the city we're already planning for basketball.

The 2K Sports Classic at Madison Square Garden is an annual exhibition college basketball tournament benefitting Coaches vs. Cancer, a program of the American Cancer Society. Typically, Texas plays in the tournament every few years and this year we will be serving as one of the regional tournament hosts along with Maryland, Illinois, and Pitt. Though the tournament begins on November 8th, all regional hosts automatically advance to the regional round on November 18th, the finals of which are November 19th.

Two years ago when Texas played last, we were able to gather a group of 150 Longhorn alumni, friends, and fans to come out for the event and cheer on the burnt orange. This year, our goal is to draw not only our New York chapter members and fans but YOURS as well! We'd like to extend an offer to your chapters to join us for this great event, to get together a bigger and better cheering section while supporting a fantastic cause.

Regional play on Thursday, November 18th begins at 7pm with Maryland/Pitt, followed by Texas/Illinois. Tickets include admission to both Thursday games and will be approximately $30-$35/ea. with a portion of proceeds going to benefit each chapter's respective scholarship fund.

In addition to the game there will be also be a happy hour and possible "fan opportunities" at the actual game itself.

A link to buy tickets will be posted here very soon. So watch this space!

Help Us Keep in Touch With You!
