Longhorns Honor Darrell Royal with In-Game Tributes

Updated: Saturday, November 10 2012, 07:21 PM CST

The Texas Longhorns
paid tribute to former football coach Darrell Royal during their game
against Iowa State on Saturday, honoring the man who won 11 conference
titles and two national championships in his 20 years leading the
program.

Royal, who died Wednesday at age 88, won 167 games at Texas from 1957 to 1976, a mark that still stands as a school record.

Texas
ran its first offensive play from the wishbone formation Royal
introduced to major college football in 1968. Instead of a run, Texas
pitched the ball to Jaxon Shipley, who tossed it back to quarterback
David Ash, who passed to tight end Greg Daniels for 47 yards, adding
some razzle-dazzle to an old-school formation.

Flags
flew at half-staff at the stadium that bears Royal's name and white
"DKR" initials were painted inside the burnt-orange Longhorn logo at
midfield. Texas players also wore a similar helmet logo, which will
remain part of the uniform the rest of the season.

A
wreath was placed at the feet of a Royal statue inside the stadium
where dozens of fans lined up to take photographs and flashed the
"Hook'em Horns" hand signal. Royal's widow Edith attended the game.

Under
Royal, Texas won 11 Southwest Conference titles, 10 Cotton Bowl
championships and national championships in 1963 and 1969, going 11-0
each time. The Longhorns also won a share of the 1970 national title,
earning him a national stature that rivaled that of Alabama's Paul
"Bear" Bryant and Ohio State's Woody Hayes. Royal was inducted into the
College Football Hall of Fame in 1983.

A
public memorial ceremony is scheduled for noon Tuesday at the Frank
Erwin Center basketball arena. Royal will be buried at the Texas State
Cemetery in Austin, an honor typically reserved for the state's military
and political leaders.

University officials illuminated the iconic UT Tower with burnt orange floodlights in Royal's honor on Wednesday night.
