Austin is the largest city in the United States without a major sports team, but don't let that fool you. Austin is still a huge sports town. Austin (and the surrounding area) has minor teams and college teams. Houston has pro teams, and many locals root for the Houston teams in pro games.

The Longhorns

The University of Texas teams - the Longhorns - are very popular and silver Longhorn Emblems on the backs of cars outnumber the Jesus fish in this liberal city. 

At the University of Texas, the Texas Longhorns have men's teams in the following sports:

  • Baseball
  • Basketball
  • Football
  • Golf
  • Swimming & Diving
  • Tennis
  • Relays
  • Track & Field

And women's teams in: 

  • Basketball
  • Golf
  • Rowing
  • Soccer
  • Softball
  • Swimming & Diving
  • Tennis
  • Relays
  • Track & Field
  • Volleyball

You cannot walk through a store in Austin without seeing at least one item with the famous orange and white Longhorns colors.

High school football is also found everywhere in Austin and the surrounding area, with games played in amazingly elaborate stadiums.
