The Texas Longhorns are having their final game of the season against the Kansas State Wildcats and let’s say things haven’t gone to plan for today’s game.
Texas was progressing well at the start of the season but after a loss to rival Oklahoma, the Longhorns went on a six-game losing streak that is still going. Now at 4-7, morale is rather low in Austin and that’s apparent with the crowd of today’s game.
Described as “sparse” on the Fox broadcast, there were open spots in the stands at Darrell K Royal Memorial Stadium, including the mostly empty student section.

Sure, it is the day after Thanksgiving and most students are at home so in fairness, this was always going to be tough to fill that stadium. That being said, Texas is regarded as one of the most popular teams in the country so it’s still surprising to see the stadium this empty. Others noticed the lack of fans as well.

The announcer calling the Texas crowd “sparse” is being kind. It’s looking like an ACC crowd out there 😬

Description of crowd in Austin for K-State @ Texas: “Sparse.” Amazing tailspin after halftime of Red River.

There are probably Texas HS Football playoff games that will draw a bigger crowd this weekend than this.
