The Texas Longhorns (8-4, 6-3 Big 12) will cap their 2022 season with an appearance in the Valero Alamo Bowl on Thursday, December 29th against the Washington Huskies (10-2, 7-2 Pac-12). Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian improved from a 5-7 record last season and looks to reach the nine-win mark with a win over first year Huskies coach Kurt DeBoer.
The Longhorns will face the nation's #2 team in total offense - Washington racks up 521.7 yards per game and boasts the top passing offense among FBS teams. Texas Quarterback Quinn Ewers has struggled in his last handful of games, and will be without star running back Bijan Robinson and team captain and running back Roschon Johnson - both of whom have opted out of the bowl game in favor of the NFL Draft.
These two teams have met four times before, with Texas holding a 3-1 record in those contests. The Alamo Bowl appearance marks the sixth for the Longhorns and the fifth since 2012.
