The University of Texas will have students on campus in the fall, and that’s great news for the football season.

According to Brett McMurphy, UT president Greg Fenves said classes will start as scheduled August 26, but the semester will end at Thanksgiving because of the coronavirus pandemic. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

That means students will be around for the football season in Austin!

Another domino falls! Another domino in making sure football happens in the fall goes down! If students are on campus in the fall, then you can bet on football happening.

It’d be really hard to see a scenario unfolding where students are allowed on campus, but the Longhorns don’t play football.

If Austin is safe enough for students to be walking around, then it’s safe enough for Sam Ehlinger to be out there slinging footballs on Saturdays.

Texas is one of the most powerful and influential programs in America. That’s just a fact, and the school having classes as scheduled up until Thanksgiving is great news.

Now, we’ll have to see which school joins the group next! Lots of positive momentum building up in the war against coronavirus!
