IN ORDER TO ATTEND, FANS MUST HAVE RECEIVED A WINNING CONFIRMATION IN THE AUG. 12 ONLINE LOTTERY AND PRESENT IT AT THE EVENT. ALSO NO OUTSIDE ITEMS MAY BE BROUGHT FOR SIGNATURE.
For the third straight year, the UT football and volleyball teams will come together for The Texas Two Step: The Ultimate August Autograph Outing. The event will start at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 21, at Gregory Gym on UT's campus.
An online lottery was held at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 12, to determine winners to attend the event who may also bring one guest. Winners received a confirmation email, which must be brought to the event along with a valid ID for admission.
Fans will have the opportunity to meet and get autographs from the Longhorns and head coach Mack Brown on items provided by the UT Athletics Department. Due to NCAA compliance issues, outside items may not be brought to the event. Any item provided by UT should be for personal use only and is not intended for sale.
"Prohibiting outside items and limiting the number of autographed items helps to protect the eligibility of our student-athletes," said UT Assistant Athletics Director for Compliance Services Lori Grierson. "We want the Texas Two Step to be a great experience for all fans and student-athletes; however, we have seen a trend of student-athlete signed items being offered for sale to the public and this is intended to prevent that from happening."
Fans will also have the opportunity to have a photo taken with Mack Brown by a professional UT photographer. The photos will then be emailed to each fan free of charge. Players will not be available for photos.
As fans await their opportunity to participate, they can take in a bonus opportunity to see the Texas women's volleyball team practice.
Suggested parking for the event is the Brazos Garage (BRG) off of MLK Blvd.
