Tower Glows “63” for Documentary

No, it’s not Throwback Thursday. The Tower will glow with “63” tonight in honor of the Longhorns’ first national football title in 1963, the subject of an upcoming Longhorn Network documentary.

The University of Texas Tower will shine orange tonight, Tues., July 16, for three hours. The Tower will be lit with “63” on all sides while the Longhorn Network films a documentary commemorating the 50th anniversary of the football team’s 1963 National Championship. At the conclusion of the production, the Tower will return to its standard lighting configuration – entirely white.

It’s a great time to relive UT’s first national championship. Grab your camera and share your photos using #UT63Champs. And give us your favorite DKR memory in the comments.
