Texas has moved back to .500, but time is waning in the 2017 season. The Longhorns will close out the regular season in less than two weeks with a home game against Texas Tech, but a road trip to West Virginia is up first. West Virginia was ranked 24th in this week’s AP poll, which is a hurdle that Texas has been unable to clear this year. Against AP-ranked teams, Texas is 0-4 although the Longhorns have been competitive in losses to USC, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. TCU? Not so much.
So, how do things look this week on the 40 Acres? Do the Longhorns have a chance against West Virginia? Hookem.com’s Brian Davis and Danny Davis fill you in on what you need to know in this week’s edition of the Zaxby’s Sound Off.
Sound Off: Texas-West Virginia preview
- Texas is coming off a 42-27 win over Kansas that was anything but memorable. Brian and Danny, though, break down what we learned about the Longhorns this past weekend. Was a 15-point win enough to convince the American-Statesman scribes that UT is good enough to get to a bowl game? And what bowl game would the Longhorns reach? (0:36)
- Is it a good or bad thing that Texas and West Virginia will be kicking off at 11 a.m.? Danny and Brian weigh the pros of an early kickoff, and the also discuss the cons. We’re just kidding. There are few cons of avoiding a long evening in rowdy Morgantown. As for what is awaiting the Longhorns in West Virginia, Brian and Danny take a look at the Mountaineer offense. (4:05)
- Texas has stated a few times over the past couple of weeks that it is trying to get its seniors to a bowl game. But what about the team’s freshman class? UT has gotten several contributions from its 2017 recruiting class, especially on the offensive side of the football. Who, though, has really stood out? Brian and Danny both have their votes for the most-fabulous freshman. (8:45)
