It’s practically a rite of passage when you’re in a relationship with a Longhorn. 

Dallas native and University of Texas grad Rachel Lindsay, whose engagement to 37-year-old Bryan Abasolo was unveiled on the season finale of “The Bachelorette” on Monday night, will be putting her relationship to the test this fall by taking her new beau to the State Fair of Texas -- and yes, the Red River Showdown. 

"Yes, I'm going to take him to the state fair," Lindsay told in an interview. "I'm a Longhorn, so I want to take him to the Texas-OU game and kill two birds with one stone."

Despite the backlash Lindsay has faced regarding her decision to choose the Miami chiropractor over runner-up and all-around-perfect-human Peter Kraus, at least she’s opening him up to a new burnt orange world.
