  1. The undefeated Oklahoma State Cowboys are coming off a bye week rested as the head to Austin for Saturday's matchup against the Longhorns. Texas is recovering from a battle they narrowly lost to rival Oklahoma last week in Dallas, and they stakes couldn't be higher for both teams. This is the 4th consecutive 11:00 AM start for the Longhorns, with Texas holding a 2-1 record in the previous three outings. A win by the Longhorns would be Steve Sarkisian's first against Mike Gundy, giving the Longhorns a 5-2 start. Texas hasn't won five of their first seven games since the 1998 season under Mack Brown. Texas owns a two-game win streak over OSU, including a 41-34 OT win in Stillwater last season. The game is of large proportions for the Longhorns, who would keep their Big 12 Championship aspirations alive with a win.

  4. The Texas Longhorns (3-1, 1-0) head to Cowtown this week to face the TCU Horned Frogs (2-1, 0-0), a team that has had their number more times than not over the last decade. Gary Patterson is nothing short of masterful in his pre-Texas game preparation, and the Longhorns should expect to see a Horned Frog team that is ready to play on Saturday. A win sets the Longhorns up with a perfect conference record and Big 12 title aspirations as they head into the Red River Shootout next week. A loss derails the momentum established since the loss in Fayetteville and makes the preseason goal of a conference championship much more difficult to achieve. The Big 12 is up for grabs and Texas needs a win against TCU in order to stake their claim. What: Texas Longhorns (3-1, 1-0 Big 12) vs TCU Horned Frogs (2-1, 0-0 Big 12) Venue: Amon G.

  6. The Texas Longhorns (2-1, 0-0) look to win their fourth straight against Matt Wells and the Texas Tech Red Raiders (3-0, 0-0) on Saturday, as Steve Sarkisian makes his Big 12 debut as head coach in Austin. The Red Raiders bring a revamped defense and new quarterback into the fold this season in Oregon transfer Tyler Shough, while Texas QB1 Casey Thompson starts under center in his first conference game. Texas' rushing attack has had success through three games this season, but Texas Tech yields just 50 yards on the ground to opponents per game. Big 12 play opens for both teams and it is critical for the Longhorns to fire on all cylinders if they want to send Texas Tech back to Lubbock with a loss. What: Texas Longhorns (2-1, 0-0 Big 12) vs.# Texas Tech Red Raiders (3-0, 0-0 Big 12) Venue: Darrell K.

  7. Texas (1-1, 0-0) and Rice (0-2, 0-0) square off for the 96th time in history on Saturday with the Longhorns hoping to right the ship after a disastrous performance in Fayetteville last weekend. The Owls are still in search of their first win of the 2021 season and hope to pull off the big upset over Texas, who has won 14 straight against Rice. Will Texas fall prey to the Owls? Does Rice have the firepower to win for the first time at DKR since the 1965 season? The HornSports Staff weighs in with their thoughts on the outcome of Saturday's 7:00 PM game which will be televised on Longhorn Network. Aaron Carrara (1-1) Texas has issues to work on in all phases of the game, which was apparent last week in Fayetteville. For Sark, Flood and Kwiatkowski, Saturday's game offers a chance to clean up a lot - schemes, personnel and an overall game plan. Sarkisian knows Rice coach Mike Bloomgren from time spent in the Pac-12 (Sark with Washington and USC and Bloomgren with Stanford), and Rice's offensive strategy should come as no surprise. The Owls would have to play a perfect game to pull off the upset at DKR but that is not going to happen. Even with the Longhorns' challenges they will easily handle Rice to improve to 2-1 before conference play starts next week. Bijan Robinson gets back on track with another 100+ yard game and the defense forces three turnovers en route to a blowout victory. Score Prediction: Texas 48, Rice 10 Jameson McCausland (1-1) Texas has a lot of clean up on Saturday evening. Offensively, they need to re-establish the running game and find schemes that the offensive line is comfortable with. Bijan Robinson was a complete non factor in Fayetteville and that can not continue to happen with conference play right around the corner. Defensively, this is a game where Texas simply needs to dominate. Rice has shown they struggle mightily to throw and run the ball and their offensive line should be no match for what the Longhorns have on the defensive line. This is a game Texas should win handily and I think they do exactly that. I expect Casey Thompson to have a good game and for Hudson Card to be able to get back out on the field to get some confidence back after a rough performance a week ago. Score Prediction: Texas 42, Rice 10 Devon Messinger (1-1) On Saturday, the Longhorns will look to bounce back with a win over Rice after losing in an absolutely demoralizing game against Arkansas. You would be hard pressed to find a position group that had a solid night against the Hogs last Saturday, however this loss will add fuel to Texas's fire. For Rice, redshirt freshman Luke McCaffrey got the nod at quarterback last week and had a rather lackluster game against Houston, throwing for 86 yards and 3 interceptions. In order to stay competitive with Texas, McCaffrey will have to have a clean game under center and Owls freshman running back Khalon Griffin will have to lead Rice's offense. Look for the Longhorns to play angry on Saturday, leaving no doubt. Score Prediction: Texas 45, Rice 3 TFloss32 (1-1) I don’t think anyone saw Texas falling flat on their face against Arkansas in Week 2, including one of the worst OL performances in years. Rice is coming to town at a great time with the team needing a solid bounce-back game and Casey Thompson getting the first start of his career. To put it bluntly, this game shouldn’t be close and any struggles or sloppy play would be deflating indicators right before conference play begins. Rice has an offense that Charlie Strong and Shawn Watson think is bad, and their defense is undersized. The good guys should be able to win convincingly as roughly 25-point favorites, and gain some confidence heading into the Tech game. Score Prediction: Texas 45, Rice 13 Tristan Larsen (1-1) It seems as if we all took Arkansas a little too lightly. It was a great lesson on the competition to come in the SEC. Now, Texas gets to regroup against a Rice program that the Longhorns have beaten 14 consecutive times. It’ll be Casey Thompson, not Hudson Card, getting the start as the offense looks to find it’s groove again. On paper this is a total mismatch. If Texas somehow loses this game it would be cause to pull the fire alarm immediately. Rice does have a former 4-star prospect at QB with Christian McCaffrey’s younger brother, Luke. His playmaking and athleticism should keep Texas on it’s heels for the most part. The latest spread from ESPN is Texas -26, for Longhorns everywhere to feel good about entering Big-12 play look for Texas to cover that massive spread. Score Prediction - Texas 45, Rice 13 Mitch Lovell (1-1) This week’s game is more about Texas than their opponent. After the massacre in Fayetteville the Longhorns need to get back to basics and dominate in the trenches. Rice was leading 17-7 vs Arkansas with 10 minutes left in the game so Texas needs to come ready to play. This game may be too close for comfort for Texas fans but the Longhorns pull away in the 3rd quarter and notch the win. Score Prediction: Texas 38, Rice 21
  8. The Texas Longhorns (1-0, 0-0 Big 12) rekindle their rivalry with former Southwest Conference Rival Arkansas (1-0, 0-0 SEC) on Saturday night in Fayetteville. Saturday's contest marks the 79th these two teams have played one another, the first time since 2014 and only the sixth time in the last 30 years. The stakes are high for Steve Sarkisian's team which has high expectations this season, and a road win over a quality opponent would keep things moving forward for the Longhorns. What: No. #15 Texas Longhorns (1-0, 0-0 Big 12) vs.# Arkansas Razorbacks (1-0, 0-0 SEC) Venue: Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium Location: Fayetteville, AR When: Saturday, Sept. 11th, 2021 Time: 6:00 p.m. (CST) TV: ESPN On the Call: Joe Tessitore, Greg McElroy, Katie George All-Time Series: Texas leads, 56-22 Last Meeting: Arkansas defeated Texas 31-7 (12/29/2014 AdvoCare Texas Bowl) Relevant Information: Depth Chart: Texas vs Arkansas Hog Notes headed into Game Week Scouting Report: Arkansas Razorbacks Staff Predictions: #15 Texas vs. Arkansas Four Keys to Saturday Night's Game in Fayetteville Inside the 40 Podcast: Post-Louisiana, Pre-Arkansas
  9. The #15 Texas Longhorns (1-0, 0-0) will face former Southwest Conference rival, the Arkansas Razorbacks, on Saturday evening at 6:00 PM in Fayetteville. The Longhorns have had success against the Hogs in their home stadium, winning the last three at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. In fact, the last time the Longhorns lost there was in 1981. Both teams won their season opening contests at home, with Texas defeating Louisiana 38-18 and Arkansas besting Rice 38-17. Redshirt freshman quarterback Hudson Card will face his first true road test as the starter for the Longhorns, and Steve Sarkisian and company look to improve to 2-0 as a staff during their time in Austin. Texas is favored by a touchdown and Arkansas will be without starting LB Bumper Pool for the first half due to a targeting call against Rice. The Hogs will also be without starting DE Dorian Gerald who suffered a leg injury in practice this week. Do the Longhorns have the game plan, mental and physical conditioning to go into enemy territory and pull off a win? The HornSports Staff give their predictions on the outcome of Saturday's big game. Aaron Carrara (1-0) Both teams are coming off wins at home but I expect Saturday’s matchup to be a prime time slugfest. I like the Longhorns on paper, but Hudson Card will have his hands full on the road. Bijan Robinson and Jeff Banks’ special teams unit will win this for Steve Sarkisian and the Longhorns leave Fayetteville with hard-fought victory. Score Prediction: Texas 34, Arkansas 24 TFloss32 (1-0) The first thing that comes to mind for this match-up is Fayetteville potentially being an environment unlike any other the current Texas players have faced. If they can stay even-keeled and ride out the initial jolt that stadium will provide, I like the good guys to eventually walk out with a victory. The evidence we have for both teams is limited, but Arkansas simply didn’t put together a good performance against Rice at home last week. I expect the game plan to be similar to that of Week 1 with a heavy dose of Bijan Robinson opening up other opportunities for the offense, and Kwiatkowski’s defense keying on KJ Jefferson’s legs forcing him to throw down field. More solid special teams play, with Dicker being consistent, and keeping the turnovers in check will go a long way. Score Prediction: Texas 27, Arkansas 20 Jameson McCausland (1-0) Saturday night is a big test for Texas and Steve Sarkisian. The Longhorns opened the season with a solid showing against Louisiana, but traveling to Fayetteville and defeating Arkansas would be huge from a momentum standpoint for the program. I expect this game to be close. The Razorbacks looked sloppy week 1, especially on offense, but I expect Kendal Briles to fully unleash KJ Jefferson's running ability and have him carry the ball 15-20 times. The difference in the game will be Bijan Robinson. I wouldn't be surprised to see him get close to 30 touches and Sarkisian will find a way to get him the ball in open space. As long as Hudson Card takes care of the football, Texas should leave Fayetteville with a victory. Score Prediction: Texas 31, Arkansas 21 Devon Messinger (1-0) Bijan Robinson, Hudson Card and Jordan Whittington all had solid games for the Longhorns last weekend and will now look to beat Arkansas on the road in Fayetteville. The Razorbacks have a plethora of talent, particularly on the defensive side of the ball, headlined by preseason All-American Jalen Catalon at safety. However, the game can be won and lost by the Longhorns on the trenches. Can the Longhorns force the Hogs to rely on quarterback KJ Jefferson's arm? Additionally, can Texas's offensive line bounce back from a shaky performance last week and create opportunities for Card and Robinson? If so, Texas will be in the driver's seat against the Razorbacks. Score Prediction: Texas 31, Arkansas 21 Tristan Larsen (1-0) After taking down top-25 Louisiana by 20 points, Sarkisian makes his SEC return against Arkansas in what could be a preview of a rivalry to come for Texas. This will be just the fifth meeting between these schools since 1992 and the first time Texas has traveled to Fayetteville in 17 years. A lot is going in the Longhorns' favor this Saturday. Bijan Robinson looked excellent as he was awarded the Big 12 and National Player of the Week. Hudson Card in his first start looked the part of the next great Texas QB. The defense as well was much improved as Sarkisian’s new and improved coaching staff seems to be a bright spot for the program. Arkansas themselves is coming off of a 38-17 victory over Rice as they look forward to going 2-0 against Texas schools this year. However, the Longhorns on paper are simply a better team than the Razorbacks at this moment. With a lot of the top name quarterbacks struggling in Week 1 another great Robinson performance could mean all gas no brakes toward Heisman consideration. Parlayed with the fact that Sarkisian embarrassed Arkansas last season 52-3, I think Texas easily takes care of business here. Score Prediction: Texas 31, Arkansas 21 Mitch Lovell (1-0) This game will be close early on as the crowd will be a factor for Hudson Card making his fist start on the road. Card will settle down, rely on Bijan to run the ball and the Longhorns will cruise in the second half. Hogs QB KJ Jefferson struggled vs Rice throwing the ball and Texas will be well-prepared on defense for the Razorback offense. Score Prediction: Texas 42, Arkansas 17
  10. The Texas Longhorns will head north to Fayetteville, Arkansas this week for their first true road game of the season when they take on the Arkansas Razorbacks. Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium has a sold-out crowd for the first time since the 2017 season, and the Longhorns will play in front of a hungry, hostile crowd in a primetime matchup that will be televised on ESPN. Texas improved its record to 1-0 with an season-opening 38-18 home win over a ranked Louisiana team. Arkansas defeated former Southwest Conference foe Rice 38-17 in Fayetteville to give Sam Pittman's team a 1-0 start. HornSports will have more on the matchup as the week progresses, but here are a few notes to get Game Week started. Notes: The Razorbacks will host Texas in Fayetteville for the first time since 2004 Texas and Arkansas will meet for the 79th time in the historic rivalry that dates back to 1894 Texas owns a 56-22 lead in the series and has won 21 of the last 30 meetings Arkansas has won four of the last six games Last meeting between these two teams: Arkansas defeated Texas 31-7 at the 2014 Texas Bowl on Dec. 29, 2014 at NRG Stadium in Houston Hogs quarterback KJ Jefferson (sophmore) is 6'3" and weighs 245 lbs. He threw for 128 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT in the win over the Owls last Saturday, and also rushed for 89 yards and 2 TD's. Texas will have to contend with a big, mobile quarterback Despite Arkansas being unranked, the Longhorns could be in for a close game. The 'Horns and Hogs have played 33 games decided by 10 points or less, and 6 of the last 12 games have been decided by 4 points or fewer Arkansas RB Trelon Smith, an Arizona State transfer and the Hogs’ leading rusher last season, ran for 102 yards and a touchdown against Rice. Smith has scored six rushing touchdowns in his last five games and averaged 97.8 rushing yards in those five games Wide Receiver Treylon Burks is an athletic, speedy wideout that has receptions in 21 straight games. He will likely be Jefferson's top-target on Saturday Mansfield Legacy (Mansfield, TX) product and defensive back Jalen Catalon, registered 11 stops and two interceptions against Rice last weekend. He is the only player in the country to have 10+ tackles and two interceptions in a game this season Depth Chart for the Longhorns: Arkansas Head Coach Sam Pittman on Texas: Texas head Coach Steve Sarkisian talks Arkansas: Here's a clip from Texas legends that played in the '69 shootout in which the Longhorns were subsequently crowned National Champions:
