It’ll be a homecoming of sorts, as Texas diehards and players return to their home base for the first time since November. It will also be a true homecoming for Tulsa’s sophomore cornerback Allie Green IV, who is receiving the rare opportunity to play a collegiate game in his own backyard.
Senior defensive end Breckyn Hager will run onto the field for the final home opener of his Longhorn career Saturday. A white “C” will be stitched onto his burnt orange jersey, signifying him as one of the team captains, but it will likely be draped over by his blonde, free-flowing hair. The golden locks, which have nearly become a trademark for the defensive end, now drop past his shoulders –– he hates it.
As the Longhorns hit the field for their first home football game this Saturday, Texas Athletics will be working closely with Parking and Transportation Services and the UT Police Department to prepare for forecast thunderstorms and showers.
