The students and staff of Travis Elementary School celebrated “Longhorn Day” on Jan. 7 before the BCS football championship involving the University of Texas and Alabama’s Crimson Tide.
Although the Tide won the game, it did little to dampen the “college ready” atmosphere on the campus, and may have inspired a few students to dream of staging a rematch in their future.
