The Texas Longhorns football program is the intercollegiate football team representing The University of Texas at Austin. The team currently competes in the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision as a member of the Big 12 Conference which is a Division I Bowl Subdivision (formerly Division I-A) of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). The team is currently coached by Mack Brown and home games are played at Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin, Texas.

Texas is one of the most highly regarded and historic football programs of all time. In 2012 the Texas’ football program was valued at 5 million, more than the calculated value of several NFL teams. In 2008, ESPN ranked the Texas Longhorns the seventh most prestigious college football program since 1936. The program began in 1893 and is one of the most successful football programs of all time. At the end of 2012 season, Texas’ all-time record is 867–336–33 (.726), which ranks as the second most successful football team in NCAA history behind the University of Michigan Wolverines. Texas is also recognized for their post-season appearances ranking second in number of bowl game appearances (51), ranked fourth in bowl game victories (27), and eighth in total number of games played (1236). From 1936 to 2012, the Longhorn football teams have received poll rankings 66 out of 76 seasons (85% of the time), finishing these seasons ranked in the top twenty-five 48 times and the top ten 28 times, in either the Associated Press or the Coaches Poll since the polls began in 1936. Since the polls began Texas has won four recognized Division I-A national championships (1963, 1969, 1970, and 2005) and 32 conference championships.

129 (53 consensus & 22 unanimous) Texas players have been named to All-America football teams while two Longhorn players have won the Heisman Trophy, college football’s highest individual honor: Earl Campbell (1977) and Ricky Williams (1998). Seventeen Longhorns have been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, while four are enshrined in the NFL Hall of Fame. The program has had at least one player selected in each of the last 71 NFL Drafts dating back to 1938.
