After bouncing around other leagues, the Revolution ended up in the CIF for 2015 when the LSFL and CPIFL merged. Indoor and arena football veteran Robert Kent once again quarterbacked the team, throwing for 2,241 yards, 51 scores and six picks. Another well-known indoor vet, Darius Fudge led the team in rushing with 624 yards and 19 scores. With an 8-4 regular season record, the Revs clinched the second seed in the playoffs and hosted a scrappy Wichita Force squad. Texas trailed entering the fourth quarter, but would win the fourth quarter 19-3 to get a 39-27 victory and advance to the Champions Bowl at Sioux City. The two teams did not play in the regular season. Texas took a 41-35 lead in the third, but was unable to hang with the Bandits after that, falling 76-61. Robert Kent returned for another year at quarterback, eclipsing his previous year's statistics with 2,921 yards, 81 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Darius Fudge also returned, running for 403 yards and twenty scores. Clinton Solomon and Tavarres Williams led all receivers, combining for 47 scores. The high-powered offense averaged 67 points per game, while standouts like Anthony Webb(eight inerceptions) got it done on defense. The Revolution lost just two games in the regular season, including a wild finish at Mesquite in the final week. After a bye, Texas hosted Amarillo. After leading 33-22 at half, Amarillo took over, outscoring Texas 35-20 in the second half and winning 57-53. The 2017 Revolution were led by indoor football veteran quarterback Chris Dixon, who passed for 2,767 yards, 67 touchdowns and 13 picks. He also ran for 24 scores, as did Michael Dyer. Due to IFL veteran rules, Dixon found himself in Texas in the CIF and winning a different title game this time. Arena and indoor vet Clinton Solomon caught 82 balls for 1,112 yards and 34 scores. After an 8-4 regular season, Texas entered the playoffs and hosted Dodge City, who had been punished with two forfeits for numerous league violations. With six seconds left, Dixon tossed a 15 yard TD pass to Solomon for a 63-59 victory and rematch with the Amarillo Venom from last year. This time, Dixon accounted for five passing and four rushing scores, leading the Revs to a 77-71 victory and berth in Champions Bowl III versus the Omaha Beef. Texas built up a 52-21 fourth quarter lead and won 59-49. Andrew Jackson spent the most time at quarterback in 2018 of the six players who spent measurable time at the position, passing for 1,090 yards, 27 scores and eight picks. The Revolution fell on opening night to the Dallas Marshals, Dallas' only victory before folding. To make the playoffs, though, Texas beat Amarillo in the final regular season week and earned another trip there the following weekend for a second consecutive victory. Texas would lose 41-28 to the eventual champions Duke City.
