Texas Kickoff Classic TicketsEver since 2013, the college football fans in Texas have had an outstanding chance to jump-start their season. With the Texas Kickoff, which is sponsored by Advocare, folks have a way to watch some prime-time, high-quality NCAA football that sets the pace for the rest of the season. The event is based in Houston, and a wide variety of teams from multiple conferences compete. As the 2019 matchup between Houston University and Washington State approaches, the audience will have a unique chance to witness two sets of Cougars face off. The Houston Cougars has already competed in the Kickoff back in 2016 when TV viewership reached an all-time high of 5.7 million watchers. The Washington State Cougars of the Pac-12 will enjoy its first Texas Kickoff event. Regardless of their lack of experience with this game, however, Washington State will probably not worry much given that it had the most wins in the Pac-12 during the last season. As the game approaches, fans should secure their seats as soon as possible. If you would like to attend the matchup, you can grab the best tickets at StubHub.

What conference do the Texas Kickoff Classic teams for 2019 play in?The matchup between the Houston Cougars and the Washington State Cougars will pair the American Athletic and Pacific-12 conferences. Washington State will be the first school to represent the Pac-12 since the inception of the Texas Classic Kickoff game.

How big is the stadium for the Texas Kickoff Classic?Ever since the creation of the Kickoff, the game has been played at the $352-million NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. The only exception to that was the 2017 season when Hurricane Harvey forced the NCAA to relocate the game to Louisiana as Houston underwent severe flooding and destruction. The NRG has a seating capacity of 71,995, and it is the first-ever NFL stadium with a retractable roof. It is also home to the local NFL team, the Houston Texans.
What is a Texas Kickoff Classic game like?The most fitting way to describe the Texas Kickoff is as an annual spectacle and a traditional NCAA football thriller. Although it is not the first game in the season, it is what many people use to mark their calendars as the official start date of the season. With tens of thousands of fans and alumni who gather to watch the event, it turns into the closest thing to a typical NFL game that involves an arguably more passionate and exciting audience. Courtesy of the cross-conference matchups, the outcomes remain unpredictable as teams of similar rankings and talents face off. Someone looking for a chance to watch a team that may not otherwise play in Texas should definitely consider attending the Kickoff.
