  1. The Longhorns and Fightin' Illini will square off at Madison Square Garden tonight at 6:00 PM in the Jimmy V. Classic. Texas, ranked #2 in the country is 6-0 and is coming off a 72-67 win over #7 Creighton. Illinois holds the #17 ranking and is 6-2 and lost their last game 71-66 to Maryland. The game will be televised on ESPN.
  2. Texas and Creighton will face off at the Mood this evening in a matchup of Top-10 programs. The Longhorns (5-0, 0-0) are ranked second in the country and look to down the Bluejays (6-1, 0-0) in this game which is part of the Big 12 vs. Big East Battle. Tipoff cokes at 6:00 pm with the game being televised on ESPN.
  3. Texas second year head coach Steve Sarkisian wraps up his last regular season game on Friday against the Baylor Bears. Sarkisian is already guaranteed a winning season, as Texas currently sits at 7-4, but eight wins would make things look a lot more palatable from the perspective of the fanbase. A win against the Bears means Texas still has a shot at making an appearance in the Big 12 Championship Game next weekend. This happens if Kansas upsets Kansas State in Manhattan on Saturday night. Baylor and Texas will square off against one another for the 112th time in history, with the Longhorns holding a 79-28-4 record against the Bears. It is Senior Day at DKR and the Longhorns will say goodbye to a good number of players that no longer have exhausted their eligibility or choose not to return. One player to keep an eye on is standout running back Bijan Robinson. Robinson, a junior, has eligibility remaining, but likely will opt to leave in favor of the NFL Draft. What: Texas Longhorns (7-4, 5-3 Big 12) vs Baylor Bears (6-5, 4-4 Big 12) Venue: Darrell K. Royal - Texas Memorial Stadium Location: Austin, TX When: Saturday, November 25th, 2022 Time: 11:00 p.m. TV: ESPN All-Time Series: Texas leads Baylor 79-28-4 Last Meeting: Baylor defeated Texas 31-24 (10/30/2021 - Waco, TX) The Line: Texas -8.5 Relevant Information: Scouting Report: Baylor Bears Staff Predictions: Texas Longhorns vs. Baylor Bears Longhorns Recruiting Road Trip: Playoffs Rounds 1 & 2
  4. The Texas Longhorns (6-4, 4-3) head north this week to face an improved Kansas Jayhawks (6-4, 3-4) team under second year coach Lance Leipold. Both teams are bowl eligible, but for Texas that means very little. Steve Sarkisian went 5-7 in his first year in Austin, and hopes were high for a successful season in year two under Sark. Sitting at 6-4 with two games left, it will likely take the 'Horns winning out to consider the 2022 campaign a success. The Jayhawks went 2-10 last season, which included a win over Texas at DKR. Saturday is senior day in Lawrence and the first matchup between the two programs there since 2018. The Longhorns will have their work cut-out for them against a potent Kansas offense that averages a whopping 7.33 yards per play this season. That stat is good enough for second nationally. The Jayhawks tend to struggle on the other side of the ball, ranking 117th out of 131 FBS teams in total defense. They give up an average of 443 yards of offense per game. While Kansas has their issues defensively, it will take efficient play from the Texas offense to exploit them. Texas quarterback Quinn Ewers has struggled as of late and it has had an impact on the Longhorns' ability to both generate positive plays and score points. The Longhorns convert just 38.7% of their third down opportunities and must do a better job if they intend winning on Saturday and finishing the season strong. Bijan Robinson ranks seventh nationally in all-purpose yards and had seven striaght games of 100+ yards rushing before ending that streak last week in the loss to TCU. Texas will likely need Robinson to carry the load against a Kansas rushing defense that gives up an average of 167 yards on the ground each game. The weather will likely be a factor, with temperatures hovering around freezing at kickoff and winds ranging from 15-17 MPH. What: Texas Longhorns (6-4, 4-3 Big 12) vs Kansas Jayhawks (6-3, 3-4 Big 12) Venue: David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium Location: Lawrence, Kansas When: Saturday, November 19th, 2022 Time: 2:30 p.m. TV: FS1 All-Time Series: Texas leads Kansas 16-4 Last Meeting: Kansas defeated Texas 57-56 OT (11/13/2021 - Austin, TX) The Line: Texas -9 Relevant Information: Scouting Report: Kansas Jayhawks Staff Predictions: Texas Longhorns vs. Kansas Jayhawks "Couldn't Get Out of Our Own Way:" Key Takeaways from Steve Sarkisian's 11/14 Press Conference
  5. The Texas Longhorns (6-3, 4-2 Big 12) are coming off Steve Sarkisian's biggest win as head coach on the 40 Acres, defeating then-ranked #13 Kansas State in Manhattan last weekend. Sark and the Longhorns hope to carry that momentum into Saturday as they welcome fourth-ranked TCU into Darrell K. Royal - Texas Memorial Stadium. Under first year TCU head coach Sonny Dykes, the Horned Frogs have their sights set on a berth in the College Football Playoff. Boasting a perfect 9-0 record and the #4 ranking in the country, they will need to win in a loud, rowdy and cold DKR stadium this weekend to continue their run. After a slow start to the season Steve Sarkisian and the ‘Horns goal of a Big 12 Championship is still intact as Texas controls their own destiny. Keep winning and that goal gets closer and closer. TCU and quarterback Max Duggan have given the Longhorns trouble as of late. On Saturday Duggan will attempt to beat Texas for the third time in four attempts. The Texas defense has a tall task ahead. Another storyline worth mentioning is the meeting between Gary Patterson and the Horned Frogs. Patterson, special assistant to Steve Sarkisian, will stand on the opposite sideline against TCU for the first time since the two parted ways last year. Patterson is the winningest coach in TCU history, where he served for more than 20 years. The Longhorns are favored by 7 points. What: #18 Texas Longhorns (6-3, 4-2 Big 12) vs TCU Horned Frogs (9-0, 6-0 Big 12) Venue: Darrell K. Royal - Texas Memorial Stadium Location: Austin, Texas When: Saturday, November 12th, 2022 Time: 6:30 p.m. (ABC) TV: ABC All-Time Series: Texas leads TCU 64-27-1 Last Meeting: Texas defeated TCU 32-27 (10/2/2021 - Fort Worth, TX) The Line: Texas -7 Relevant Information: Scouting Report: TCU Horned Frogs Staff Predictions: #18 Texas vs. #4 TCU How Important is the TCU game for the Longhorns?

  6. The Texas Longhorns bring a five game winning streak against the Kansas State Wildcats into Saturday's contest at Bill Snyder Family Football Stadium in Manhattan. The 'Horns have won the last two in the Little Apple and hope to replicate that success under head coach Steve Sarkisian. Sark is 1-6 in true road games with his lone win coming in Fort Worth last season against the Horned Frogs. Both Sarkisian and the program need the win against the Wildcats to prove they are still a contender for a Big 12 crown but it won't be easy. Kansas State sits in second pace in the Big 12 and the 'Cats are coming off a 48-0 thrashing of Oklahoma State last weekend. The Longhorns are game planning for both quarterbacks Adrian Martinez and Will Howard, and Pete Kwiatkowski's defense will have their hands full with either. Martinez missed last week with a knee injury and his status for the game is unknown. Howard started last week in the win against the 'Pokes, throwing for 296 yards and 4 touchdowns. Elusive running back Deuce Vaughn is another weapon Texas will have to contend with on the Wildcat side of the ball. The Wildcats rack up a whopping 228 yards rushing per game, and the Longhorns need to plug the holes and control the line of scrimmage if they expect to contain Vaughn. For the 'Horns the hope is quarterback Quinn Ewers plays an efficient game after struggling last week in Stillwater. Ewers threw three interceptions against the Cowboys and struggled to hit his receivers most of the day, particularly on the deep throws. Expect running backs Bijan Robinson and Roschon Johnson to fight for yards against a rushing defense that gives up just 133 yards on the ground per game. It's a night game on the road, with big implications for the Texas season and program. A win silences the critics about Sarkisian's inability to win on the road and makes the Longhorns bowl eligible with three games remaining. A loss furthers the chatter about the future of the program and whether or not true progress is being made. What: #24 Texas Longhorns (5-3, 3-2 Big 12) vs Kansas State Wildcats (6-2, 4-1 Big 12) Venue: Bill Snyder Family Football Stadium Location: Manhattan, Kansas When: Saturday, November 5th, 2022 Time: 6:00 p.m. (CST) TV: FS1 All-Time Series: Texas leads Kansas State 12-10 Last Meeting: Texas defeated Kansas State 22-17 (11/26/2021 - Austin, TX) Relevant Information: Scouting Report: Kansas State Wildcats Staff Predictions: #24 Texas vs. #13 Kansas State "Hit the Reset Button:" Key Takeaways from Steve Sarkisian's 10/31 Press Conference
  7. University of Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian is o-fer in his last four true road games. Saturday's game is one he needs to win, not just to get the monkey off his back, but to keep his team in the hunt for a Big 12 Championship. Whether it's in Stillwater or in Austin, the matchup between these two programs is always bold, full of energy, and full of offense. Expect Saturday's contest to be no different. Texas begins a two game road stretch, with a bye week in between, facing Oklahoma State at Boone Pickens Stadium. The Pokes lost their first game of the season last week at Amon Carter Stadium in Fort Worth, but Mike Gundy's team is still very much in the hunt for a Big 12 Championship. Texas has had trouble winning on the road under Sarkisian, which was emphasized by the team's loss in Lubbock to an unranked Texas Tech program. A win is a must-have for both programs if they intend on appearing in Dallas in December in the league's title game. Oklahoma State is facing quarteback uncertainty with starter Spencer Sanders nursing an ongoing shoulder injury. Texas is facing a game in hostile territory and needs to prove that they can win in such an environment. Gundy's Cowboys have won their last twelve games inside Boone Pickens Stadium and the Longhorns face a tall task in ending that streak. What: #20 Texas Longhorns (5-2, 3-1 Big 12) vs Oklahoma State Cowboys (5-1, 2-1 Big 12) Venue: Boone Pickens Stadium Location: Stillwater, Oklahoma When: Saturday, October 22nd, 2022 Time: 2:30 p.m. (CST) TV: ABC All-Time Series: Texas leads Iowa State 26-10 Last Meeting: Pklahoma State defeated Texas 32-24 (10/21/2021 - Austin, TX) Relevant Information: Scouting Report: Oklahoma State Cowboys Staff Predictions: #20 Texas vs. #11 Oklahoma State "Poise and Composure" Key Takeaways from Steve Sarkisian's 10/17 Press Conference Longhorns Recruiting Road Trip Week 8
  8. After losing their opening Big 12 game against the Texas Tech Red Raiders, the Texas Longhorns (4-2, 2-1) have won two straight and look to continue that streak as they host the Iowa State Cyclones (3-3, 0-3) at DKR on Saturday. The Longhorns handed Oklahoma a 49-0 beatdown in Fair Park last weekend, while the Cyclones lost a close one to Kansas State to the tune of 10-9 in Ames. For the Cyclones, defense reigns. Texas will have its hands full with a stout defense that leads the Big 12 in rushing defense, passing defense, total defense and scoring defense. The Longhorns boast the 36th best offense in the country right now and are firing on all cylinders behind quarterback Quinn Ewers and star running back Bijan Robinson. Saturday's matchup marks the 20th meeting between these two programs and the 11th time they have met on the field in Austin. The Cyclones own a three game win-streak against the Longhorns and defeated Texas last season 30-7 in Ames. Kickoff comes early for the second consecutive week at 11:00 AM with the game being televised on ABC. What: #22 Texas Longhorns (4-2, 2-1 Big 12) vs Iowa State Cyclones (3-3, 0-3 Big 12) Venue: Darrell K. Royal - Texas Memorial Stadium Location: Austin, Texas When: Saturday, October 15th, 2022 Time: 11:00 a.m. (CST) TV: ABC All-Time Series: Texas leads Iowa State 14-5 Last Meeting: Iowa State defeated Texas 30-7 (11/6/2021 - Ames, IA) Relevant Information: Scouting Report: Iowa State Cyclones Staff Predictions: Texas vs. Iowa State "Rinse and Repeat" Key Takeaways from Steve Sarkisian's 10/10 Press Conference Longhorns Recruiting Road Trip Week 7
  9. The Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners will meet for the 118th time on Saturday at the hallowed grounds of the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, Texas. While neither team is ranked in the Associated Press Top 25 Poll in this matchup, the first time this has happened in the last 24 years, the stakes are still very high for both programs and their coaches. For the Longhorns and Steve Sarkisian, the season goal of a conference championship appearance is still in sight. They will need to get past the Sooners to do so, which has proven to be a challenge for Texas. Oklahoma has won 10 of the last 13 meetings and the Sooners have been crowned Big 12 Champions 14 times in the last 22 years. The Longhorns held a commanding lead in last year's game only to see freshman quarterback Caleb Williams lead the Sooners to a 55-48 come-from-behind win in the second half. No lead is safe in this game. The players know it, the coaches know it and the fans know it. Texas must find a way to score points in the 4th quarter, something they have had trouble doing this season. It is trending favorable that the 'Horns will have starting quarterback Quinn Ewers under center for this game after missing the last month rehabbing an injured shoulder. Ewers shined in the Alabama game before being knocked out of the game, giving the Texas offense a spark it hasn't seen in several years. The quarterback position remains uncertain for the Sooners. Starting quarterback Dillon Gabriel left last week's TCU game with a concussion and his status for Saturday is unknown. Should Gabriel remain on the sidelines, expect to see Pittsburgh transfer Davis Beville and/or General Booty at quarterback for the Sooners. Both teams have solid rushing attacks, with the Longhorns' led by Bijan Robinson who has reached the century mark on the ground in each of his last three games. Oklahoma will utilize a trio of capable running backs in Marcus Major, Eric Gray and Jovantae Barnes. Oklahoma owns a four game winning streak against Texas and neither Sarkisian nor Venables holds a win as head coach over the other program. What: Texas Longhorns (3-2, 1-1 Big 12) vs Oklahoma Sooners (3-2, 0-2 Big 12) Venue: Cotton Bowl Location: Dallas, Texas When: Saturday, October 8th, 2022 Time: 11:00 p.m. (CST) TV: ABC All-Time Series: Texas leads Oklahoma 62-50-5 Last Meeting: Oklahoma defeated Texas 55-48 (10/9/2021 - Dallas, TX) Relevant Information: Scouting Report: Oklahoma Sooners Staff Predictions: Texas vs. Oklahoma "Red River Week:" Key Takeaways from Steve Sarkisian's 10/3 Press Conference Longhorns Recruiting Road Trip Week 6
  10. The #22 Texas Longhorns (2-1, 0-0) head north to the Texas Panhandle this week to take on the Texas Tech Red Raiders (2-1, 0-0) in the Big 12 opener for both programs. The Longhorns' lone loss was to then-top ranked Alabama in Austin during week 2. The Red Raiders brought a 2-0 record into Raleigh, North Carolina last weekend but fell to #16 North Carolina State. The Longhorns will be the third straight ranked opponent Texas Texas Tech has faced in as many weeks. The Red Raiders have a new head coach in Joey McGuire, who seems to have things headed in the right direction in Lubbock. Texas Tech will start sophmore quarterback Donovan Smith in place of starter Tyler Shough, who suffered a collarbone injury in the season opening game against Murray State. Smith is a dynamic dual-threat quarterback that has thrown for 786 yards and 7 TD's through three games. He has also thrown five interceptions, all in the last two games and against ranked opponents. The Texas quarterback situation is similar to that of the Red Raiders, with starter Quinn Ewers still rehabbing a clavicle sprain. Ewers will make the trip to Lubbock and will suit out, however it is still uncertain if he is healthy enough to start or even play. Sophmore Hudson Card will likely get the nod under center when the game gets underway. Saturday marks the third straight season these teams have opened up conference play against one another and the 63rd straight season in which they have played one another. What: Texas Longhorns (2-1, 0-0 Big 12) vs Texas Tech Red Raiders (2-1, 0-0 Big 12) Venue: Jones AT&T Stadium Location: Lubbock, Texas When: Saturday, September 24th, 2022 Time: 2:30 p.m. (CST) TV: ESPN All-Time Series: Texas leads Texas Tech 54-17 Last Meeting: Texas defeated Texas Tech 70-35 (9/25/2021 - Austin, TX) Relevant Information: Scouting Report: Texas Tech Red Raiders Appeal Denied on DeMarvion Overshown's Targeting Penalty Texas - Texas Tech Game in Lubbock Sold Out Staff Predictions: Texas vs. Texas Tech Key Takeaways from Steve Sarkisian's 9/19 Press Conference All Hands On Deck at Tech: Quinn Ewers to Suit Up, Murphy to Make the Trip to Lubbock
  11. Texas and Texas Tech will meet on September 24th with a game time of 2:30 pm being announced this morning by the Big 12 Conference. The game will be televised on ABC or ESPN.
  12. The barometer for head coach Steve Sarkisian and the Texas Football program begins its reading on Saturday as the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide head to Darrell K. Royal Stadium in Austin. While the Longhorns lead the Tide all-time in wins (7-1-1), Nick Saban's team has dominated college football for the last 10 years, appearing in 7 national championship games and winning five of them. Alabama is favored by roughly 20 points, in a contest that little to none give Texas a chance at pulling off the upset win. The stakes are high in the 11:00 am kickoff, particularly for Texas, which looks to prove that they are an improved team under year two of Sarkisian. Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young leads a prolific Alabama offense, while on the Texas side, the highly touted Quinn Ewers looks to prove he can make an impact at quarterback early on in his career on The 40 Acres. Regardless of the outcome, this is the biggest game that has taken place in Austin in half a decade. Most expect the Longhorns to lose, but a win would do wonders for Sarkisian and the Texas program. Historically the Longhorns are 5-11 against the #1 ranked team, including 2-2 over their last four games. What: Texas Longhorns (1-0, 0-0 Big 12) vs Alabama Crimson Tide (1-0, 0-0 SEC) Venue: Darrell K.
