Their inaugural game in 1893 giving birth to a tradition that would still be going strong well over a century later, The Texas Longhorns have charged their way to four national championships, two Heisman trophies, forty-five bowl appearances, and seen fifteen of their best players immortalized in the College Football Hall of Fame. Now fans can take home the entire history of this legendary team in a comprehensive retrospective that begins when beloved trainer "Doc Henry" Reeves pushed players to their limit and Memorial Stadium was constructed in the 1920s, and follows the Longhorns right through to the 2005 victory over USC that earned the team their fourth national championship. Of course the story of the Longhorns 1941 Life Magazine cover story is also there, as is a remarkable retrospective of the 1969 battle against number two Arkansas that would go down in history as "The Game of the Century." Additional featurettes such as "The 2006 Rose Bowl Celebration," "Livin' Large with the Longhorns," "4th and Inches," and "Freddie Steinmark," take fans to the sidelines for a revealing look at a college football phenomenon.
