Texas vs Oklahoma 1954

As a freshman I played in the Longhorn Band. My first OU game was in 1954. We traveled to Dallas in chartered Greyhound buses. Friday night before the game we painted (washable paint) “Longhorn Band” on the sides of the buses, traveling Saturday morning in time to get to the game. We had won the year before but we lost in 1954. Money was pretty tight in those days and we spent Saturday night in the Salvation Army building ( we were an all male band at that time). We came back to Austin on Sunday.
