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.
