Charlie Strong and players have reiterated incessantly over the course of the last few weeks that Texas "has to make a bowl game."

 

That is the mantra in the locker room and the Longhorns find themselves needing to win two of their last three games to reach a 6-6 record and a bowl berth in Charlie Strong's first season as head coach.

 

The remaining Texas Football schedule:

11/8 vs. WVU (6-3, 4-2)
11/15 @ Oklahoma State (5-4, 3-3)
11/27 vs. TCU (7-1, 4-1)

 

If fans had to pick the two games they think the team has the best shot at winning, circle the West Virginia and Oklahoma State games.  Oklahoma State has lost 3 in a row (all to ranked Big 12 opponents) and have beaten the same 3 in-conference teams that the Longhorns have beaten (Kansas, Iowa State and Texas Tech).

 

West Virginia heads to Austin this weekend after letting a home win against TCU slip away last Saturday.  The Mountaineers have lost three games this season - all to ranked opponents (Alabama, Oklahoma, TCU).  Texas will have to play mistake-free and lights-out to upset a high powered West Virginia team that ranks 11th in the nation in passing yards.

 

TCU is one of the hottest teams in the country right now with the lone loss for Gary Patterson's Frogs being dealt at the hands of the Baylor Bears.  

 

Despite only three games remaining, for Texas there is still a lot of football to be played.  A win over West Virginia on Saturday would be a huge step closer for the Longhorns to become bowl eligible.

 

Do they do it?  Vote and let us know (poll is above this post)
