So, this Longhorn offense is scoring on all cylinders. Great run game, great passing game. That’s good for 7th in the nation. It’s being ran by, David Ash? Yes, David Ash. After being thrown in as a freshman last season because the Garrett Gilbert project didn’t pan out like Texas thought it would, he had [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
All the talk at Oklahoma State’s Monday football news conference was who would be the Cowboys starting quarterback for Saturday's game with Texas. Will Wes Lunt’s injured left knee be improved enough for him to play? That remains to be seen, but for the first time in a couple of seasons we do know who will be quarterbacking Texas as David Ash has solidified his hold on the...
No. 12 Texas at Oklahoma State
Saturday, 7:50pm Eastern, Fox
Line: Texas -3
Alright folks, time to lace 'em up real tight, it's conference football season. Texas seems to be back, ranked 12th and whipping up opponents on the way to a 3-0 start to their season. Oklahoma State is putting up ridiculous offensive numbers but couldn't pass their one test...
The Texas Longhorns last won the Big 12 in 2009. Since then, they have done a whole lot of losing.
Texas had losing records in Big 12 play the last two seasons, a trend the No. 12 Longhorns (3-0) hope to reverse starting Saturday night in their conference opener at defending champion Oklahoma State (2-1).
A win in rowdy Stillwater would be a big step toward showing they are indeed...
Dancing in the Ruins - (SWRT's regular look at the new Big XII Conference that's rising out of the ruins of the old one.)
Bruce Feldman named Texas starting quarterback David Ash as one
of " the most pleasant surprises thus far in the college football
season." (CBS Sports)
Texas is underrated.
Because Trey Scott said so. (The...
Mack Brown will try to convince his players they should be afraid of Oklahoma State, and he will try to do it by reminding them that beating Ole Miss is not the same as beating Oklahoma State.
"We've had better personnel than the three teams we've played," he said.
The implication is that this will no longer be the case. It might make for timely coaching rhetoric...
After a bye week that hopefully has given key players in Joe Bergeron and Jordan Hicks an opportunity to heal from injuries, the days are counting down before Texas treks to Stillwater, Oklahoma and an early-conference showdown against Mike Gundy's Oklahoma State Cowboys.
Once upon a time this series was decidedly in favor of the (burnt) orange as Texas won games going away...
Ole Miss Rebels at #1 Alabama Crimson Tide
Brendan’s Pick: Barring an unprecedented slip up or collapse it's pretty obvious Alabama isn't losing a game this season, unless LSU manages to top them at home, but this might be their biggest mismatch of the season. Texas had their way with the Rebels' defense and the Tide will do the same. Expect...
Week 5 Picks – Focus on Noon KickoffsMy two biggest issues this season have been with weeknight games and with the Pac 12. Washington’s performance last night killed two birds with one stone. The Huskies’ win is a perfect way to start my week. I’m back to a 50% winning percentage and ready to show continued improvement. Friday night provides another opportunity for me to...
Coach Mike Gundy insisted he had no reason to hide whether starting quarterback Wes Lunt would be able to return from a knee injury in time to face No. 12 Texas in Oklahoma State's Big 12 opener on Saturday night on FOX.
That doesn't mean he's going to tell anyone about it.
After Gundy promised to update Lunt's status Friday as part of Oklahoma State's new policy...
