Texas has prided itself on having a stout defensive unit led by Todd Orlando since last season, but in the program’s biggest win of the decade during last weekend, offensive coordinator Tim Beck’s group of players was the telling factor. Here’s what Orlando and Beck had to say Wednesday ahead of a Week Seven home matchup against Baylor:
Fresh off a monumental win over Oklahoma, head coach Tom Herman walked to the podium Monday to commend Ehlinger's performance, comment about his 197 congratulatory text messages and preview what's to come against Baylor.
After driving 52 yards, Texas faced a decision: Go for a touchdown or get in position to set up Dicker the kicker — a true freshman — to kick a field goal and possibly put the Longhorns ahead in the final seconds of the game.
Floods of Oklahoma fans emerged from their seats and headed for the exits as Texas took a commanding 21-point lead over the Sooners. But what those fans would soon miss was an electrifying fourth quarter that marked an instant classic in a 118-year-long rivalry.
From Ann Arbor to Gainesville, there is are a plethora of must-see games throughout the country this week. With No. 19 Texas heading to the Cotton Bowl, here are a list of games you can watch in addition to the Longhorns' matchup with No. 7 Oklahoma:
As the scent of deep-fried everything seeps into the Cotton Bowl and kickoff approaches, one scene seemingly captures the magnitude of the Red River Rivalry perfectly: the bus ride to the entrance of the Cotton Bowl. “You look out the window of your bus and you’ve got an 8-year-old kid going double bird at you, and right next to him is an 88-year-old woman going double bird the same way.”
