If you’re a Texas fan and you haven’t snagged your tickets for the USC game yet, the only way to guarantee that you get them is by buying season tickets, according to Danny Davis of the Austin-American Statesman.

According to Davis, the access to the USC game is going to be offered to the season ticket holders in June.
Last year, the Longhorns and the then-No. 4 Trojans battled all the way into overtime, where USC eventually prevailed, 27-24.
The 2017 edition was hosted by USC, and the 2018 contest will be hosted by Texas in Austin. The 2017 meeting was the first time the schools had squared off since the 2005 Rose Bowl National Championship, a game that is widely regarded as the best college football game of all time.
The policy isn’t unique to Texas. Oklahoma State does it too, but they require you to purchase season tickets for the fabled Bedlam rivalry.
Regardless, one-off tickets for one of the most anticipated non-conference games in college football are now off the table.
