(Austin, TX) - Kick-off isn't until 7pm - but University of Texas fans will have plenty of time to order new Longhorns license plates before the game Thursday.
Exact times as to when the plates will be available have not yet been released, but fans are advised to continue checking the website www.myplates.com.
The University and My Plates have redesigned the UT plate with the official Longhorns burnt orange logo, giving fans a new way to show their school pride. Proceeds from plate sales benefit the state's higher education scholarship program and the general revenue fund of the state of Texas.
The official Longhorns plate starts at $55 a year. The cost goes up if you want to personalize the plate, depending on how many letters and numbers you need to spell out the combination you want. You can even put official Longhorn plates on motorcycles, trailers, RVs and private buses. About three weeks after you order, the plate arrives at a county tax assessor's office for pick up.
Create your plate at www.myplates.com. You can also call My Plates at 1-888-7MY-PLAT(ES), Monday to Friday 8a-6p.
