  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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. Royal - Texas Memorial Stadium Location: Austin, Texas When: Saturday, September 10th, 2022 Time: 11:00 a.m. (CST) TV: FOX All-Time Series: Texas leads Alabama 7-1-1 Last Meeting: Alabama defeated Texas 37-21 (1/7/2010 - Pasadena, CA - BCS National Championship Game) Relevant Information: Scouting Report: Alabama Crimson Tide Staff Predictions: Texas vs. Alabama What a Historic Upset Against #1 Alabama Would Mean for the Texas Longhorns
  4. The Chinch Bug kicked some a$$ all over Texas. Thanks Mark for all the advice!
  5. Hey guys, wanted to make sure everyone on HornSports was aware of Burnt Orange Heroes™ - a NEW a player-driven NIL community built by former University of Texas standouts Derrick Johnson and Bryan Jones. It will launch in a couple of weeks officially, but from our perspective this is a no-brainer for Longhorn fans that want to support and interact with UT student-athletes that are a part of it. These guys provide a creative way for fans to interact with players while providing unique experiences at the same time. Currently, more than 15 of the top athletes at Texas have signed onto Burnt Orange Heroes™. They created a gated platform in the Discord community that allow the players and fans an opportunity to connect through scheduled engagements multiple times per week. Whether it’s weekly chats and interviews, exclusive player/fan events, or unique bucket-list experiences, the players and lettermen that drive the Burnt Orange Heroes are providing a one-of-a-kind opportunity for fans to get to know the player behind the jersey. We've talked with Derrick, Demarvion Overshown and Justice Finkley about it and this is a REALLY cool initiative that will help UT players develop and monetize their brands as part of Name, Image and Likeness (NIL). Overshown, Finkley, Roschon Johnson, Tanner Witt, Brenen Thompson, Jaylon Guilbeau, Anthony Cook, Isaiah Neyor and Jordan Whittington are just several of the athletes that are involved. View more about the The Burnt Orange Heroes™ initiative here - https://www.theplayerslounge.io/burnt-orange-heroes. Membership is obtained by purchasing a VIP Pass for $199 annually. Proceeds go directly to the participating player partners. Purchasing a membership is the best way to support these University of Texas student-athletes and strengthen the foundation of NIL at Texas. The VIP Pass can be purchased easily with a credit or debit card, and gives you access to all member-related benefits throughout the year. What do you get for a Membership? Access to: EXCLUSIVE MESSAGE BOARDS PRIVATE CHATS WITH ATHLETES EXCLUSIVE CONTENT IN-PERSON EVENTS ACCESS TO TPL EXPERIENCES MERCHANDISE & MEMORABILIA As It Stands: Currently more than ~8,000 members in Discord community, where players and fans chat with each other and take part in exclusive “gated” interactions. More than 5,000+ similar memberships have been sold to fans at partner schools in 2022, with more than $350,000+ having already been distributed to partner athletes. More than 150+ top NCAA student athletes from the University of Texas and partner schools in the community are being supported with NIL deals. The Burnt Orange Heroes announces their Kickoff Party along with 7 additional partner schools to be held at the College Football Hall of Fame on July 22-23, 2022. More than 60+ of the nation’s top collegiate athletes will be in attendance. Tickets can be purchased by visiting https://www.theplayerslounge.io/kickoff-party. HornSports doesn't receive anything from purchases of memberships, etc. This is an initiative we are happy to help get the word out about primarily because it helps student-athletes and is totally player-driven.
  6. @Mitch Lovellwhat's the temperature over there with OU currently whipping the Aggies?
  7. Olivarez works around a 2-out hit in the 8th. Texas needs 3 more outs and is leading 9-3.
