To be a Texan is to be a Longhorn fan. There’s no way around it! Texas Longhorns season is one of the most celebratory times in the state for everyone, and Longhorn pride is a great way to feel connected to your fellow Texans. Whether you’re just dropping through Austin during the football season or a tried-and-true Longhorn supporter, here are eight tailgate essentials to get you through the season in style.

Cornhole Boards

Perfect for tailgate entertainment before the Longhorns game, these bold cornhole boards are emblazoned with the Longhorns logo as a clear demonstration of support and team pride, and you can have the age-old debate on whether it’s called bags or cornhole.

Team Colored Pom-Poms
