News broke on Wednesday that the UCLA Bruins football team had worked out a deal to play an upcoming regular season game at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, but on Thursday the opponent and date for the meeting was set as UCLA will take on the Texas Longhorns September 13, 2014 at the Palace that Jerry built.
UCLA has a game scheduled with Virginia on that date as well, so they will have to do a little schedule shuffling to make this work, marking a big win for AD Dan Guerrero as well as the UCLA football program itself. In fact, Texas and UCLA had just completed a home-and-home series against each other as UCLA topped texas 32-12 out in Austin in 2010, though Texas get their revenge this season at the Rose Bowl by the score of 49-20. It's going to be a few seasons before these teams play each other once more, so might as well let the rivalry stew in the mean time.
