It's a short flight- 1 hour. From liftoff to touchdown it's really only 30 minutes. IAH can get busy, but your arrival and docking in AUS will be quick. Good for everyone else, bad for me- I never want to leave my home airport. All of the aircraft from IAH that day are 737s except for 1 753 (CO1541). Quick flight, but still 500 OnePass miles. One more thing:

YYZACGUY, enjoy the game (even if you're going for the wrong team!) and enjoy the state. The atmosphere will be great.

Isn't that US Thanksgiving weekend????? The day before Thanksgiving is one of the busiest days of the year for airlines. Thanksgiving Day itself (Thursday) used to be dead, but over the years it has gotten very busy.

And if there is a game in AUS that weekend, hotels are probably already full and you will have trouble finding anything closer at any sort of reasonable rate.

Good luck. Safe travels. But have FUN!

BYU just had a great road trip to Texas knocking off TCU in Fort Worth and are now enjoying a DL charter flight back to SLC from DFW. Sometimes Texas hospitality can't be touched and is priceless!

I live 68 mi NW of Austin. I doubt I get a ticket to that game, will end up watching it on TV.

While I am not overwhelmingly optimistic about A&M's chances vs tu in Austin I think rumors of their demise are premature. We will know much more about A&M after they play Texas teach-me-no-knowledge-college this coming weekend.

If you can send me a private msg on here, do so. I will be happy to tell you all you want to know about Austin (and probably some things you don't want to know about Austin.)

You seem like a rational person from that other school. I'll reserve my wrath for some of your more obnoxious bretheren  Wink Plus, Texas probably wins this game, but it will be far from a blowout. A lot of Longhorns seem to forget that A&M came very close to ruining UT's dream season last year, and the Aggies were terrible last year.

No one in their right mind ever writes off A&M against Texas (or vice-versa). It transcends mere talent.

In any event, UT fans enjoy having the visitors from The University of Texas' Agricultural and Mechanical Branch at Brazos County visit; typically very good guests, well-behaved and, usually, well-groomed.

The Texas Constitution
Article 7 - EDUCATION
Section 13 - AGRICULTURAL AND MECHANICAL COLLEGE

The Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas, established by an Act of the Legislature passed April 17th, 1871, located in the county of Brazos, is hereby made, and constituted a Branch of the University of Texas, for instruction in Agriculture, the Mechanic Arts, and the Natural Sciences connected therewith. And the Legislature shall at its next session, make an appropriation, not to exceed forty thousand dollars, for the construction and completion of the buildings and improvements, and for providing the furniture necessary to put said College in immediate and successful operation.

Oh sweet Jesus yes. This is the best, most useful advice you'll ever read on this board. It's not only worth the drive, it's worth the whole trip. The only thing you need to keep in mind, however, is that it's BYOB.

Odd, considering this little nugget is widely available on UT's very own website:

"The Constitution of 1866 directed the legislature to put the university in operation at an early date. In 1871 the legislature established the Texas A&M College, but the university was still postponed."

And later on in the same article: "The university was formally opened in the new building on September 15, 1883, though classes were held in the temporary Capitol as late as January 1884."

Saltlick is good, not as good as it use to be, if you don't wanna drive all the way to Driftwood, hit up County Line for some ribs. Delicious. Houston's also makes a good rack of ribs.

The US flights come into gate 20. You'll prolly be landing on the west set of runways, 17R/35L. You'll fly right over the FX ops, so wave!  bouncy 

Good luck getting to AUS on those dates with passes. Travel is way overbooked with REV pax on Thanksgiving holiday.

I don't know if it's worth driving all the way to Driftwood when you can just go to better BBQ at [url="http://www.countyline.com/"]The County Line[/url] which is right in Austin...

But, I still love both.

While on the subject of good food in AUS, I'm surprised no one has mentioned The County Line Wink Best BBQ Ribs & sausage for miles around...wonderful bread made from scratch

County Line is good but I like the atmosphere at Salt Lick better... But nothing touches Hard Eights BBQ... it is in Stephenville (Which is nowhere close to Austin)... But if you ever have a chance, fly into KSEP and take the golf cart over to Hard Eights... I have had BBQ from Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas City, and Memphis; everywhere that is well known (Did anyone else notice that I did not mention Oregon!?!), and this place is by far the best... Salt Lick to me is a very close second, and County Line is in my top 5....

and once again blah blah blah something about Airplanes...

Can't remember the one I went to but it was on the south side of the campus. Very close to it. Tex-Mex and BBQ are definitly part of the culture here that you just can't get up north. Enjoy!

We are flying into IAH because if we get bumped on continental more then 4 times(i believe a flight every hour) we can then rent a car and drive. Anet is the one that helped me and said that IAH is closer drive to AUS then DFW so thats why we are going to IAH.
