Let’s use Texas’ roster, history and scouting reports to countdown to the start of the 2017 football season. Today, we are only six days away from Texas’ home game against Maryland.
Which Longhorn wears No. 6? Sophomore WR Devin Duvernay, who was wearing No. 2 last year when he averaged 20.6 yards per catch. Duvernay caught 20 footballs in 2016, and he scored on 63-, 75- and 80-yard plays.
Who also wears No. 6? Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield (3,965 passing yards, 40 TDs in 2016); Maryland RB Ty Johnson (110 rushes for 1,004 yards, 6 TDs)
Fun fact about No. 6: Last year, Texas quarterback Shane Buechele ranked sixth in the Big 12 in both total offense (259.1 yards per game) and passing offense (246.5 yards per game). Of the top 10 quarterbacks on the Big 12’s passing charts, only Buechele and Baylor’s Zach Smith (152.6 yards per game) were freshmen.
