The Texas Longhorns (1-1, 0-0) and the USC Trojans (1-1, 0-1) will meet for the seventh time in history on Saturday night in Austin.  The Longhorns are in search of their 900th all-time win and their second of the season, while USC is reeling from a 17-3 loss to Stanford last week.  Look for the Longhorns to try and establish a running game early on via the efforts of grad transfer tailback Tre Watson.  USC’s rush defense ranks 117th out of 129 teams, and Tom Herman will try to exploit that.

What:  Texas Longhorns (1-1, 0-0 Big 12) vs. USC Trojans (1-1, 0-1 Pac-12)
When:  Saturday, September 15, 2018
Time:  7:00 PM CST

My thoughts on OU after their game with ISU.

Kyler Murray has a hard time seeing over his OL. He moves laterally in the pocket to help in that regard. Hopefully, we notice this on film.

The OU OL is fairly solid, despite their losses from last year.

OU is in trouble at RB. Their backups are nothing special.

WR play is being hurt to some extent by Murray's inability to find them. On planned stuff, it seems to be ok. But when he has to check down, its a problem.

Murray won't get much help this year at TE. Calcaterria fumbled today and wasn't real active otherwise. It was so bad that Reilly inserted someone in his place who had never played a down in three years.

OU's defense can be run on. Iowa State's OL is no slouch, but OU was pounded by Montgomery today.

Pass defense wasn't that great. It was hit and miss all day. ISU got their shots in and it hurt OU.

Was not impressed at all with OU's LB play.

OU's kicker is money from 45 yards and in. He is also the punter and does a credible job of that, too.

Ok so my stay positive take is that Herman was overconfident with Maryland and Tulsa and dumbed down the game plan and got caught with his pants down both times. Now he's going to let it all loose and we pull a thrilling game out of our collective butts and look pretty salty doing it - enough to keep all our big targets interested and maybe even sell a few. And now I will take another giant bong hit (figuratively, of course).
