The Texas Hurricanes along with the Bryan-College Station Convention and Visitors Bureau announced Tuesday that the Southern Indoor Football League team will now call Bryan-College Station home.

Houston businessman Terry Williams recently purchased the franchise and is moving the team to College Station. Terry believes Aggieland is the right community for his team and isn't wasting any time moving the team to the Brazos Valley.

The Texas Hurricanes' first home game will be Sunday, July 5th against the Acadiana Mudbugs at the Arctic Wolf Ice Center. Then they finish up the season playing the Austin Turfcats July 7th & 11th.

The 2010 season will see the Texas Hurricanes playing at the McFerrin Multi-Purpose Facility on the Texas A&M University campus.

The team has recently signed former Blinn & Kansas State Quarterback Michael Bishop.

Tickets are $8 and available for purchase at the Quility Inns and Suites in College Station and at the BCS Convention and Visitors Bureau.
