Countdown to Texas’ kickoff: 93 days

Posted June 1st, 2017


Let’s use Texas’ roster, history and scouting reports to countdown to the start of the 2017 football season. Today, we are only 93 days away from Texas’ home game against Maryland.

Which Longhorn wears No. 93? Nobody. Last year, defensive lineman Paul Boyette, Jr., wore that number during a 34-tackle season. During the off-season, Boyette signed with Oakland as an undrafted free agent.

Who also wears No. 93? Maryland DL Oseh Saine (five tackles, 0.5 sacks in 2016); Oklahoma State DE Jarrell Owens (25 tackles, 2.5 sacks)


Fun fact about No. 93: Texas has gone 93 games with a 400-yard passing performance. In a 35-3 win over Central Florida on Nov. 7, 2009, Colt McCoy threw for 470 yards. Shane Buechele’s game-high in 2016 was a 318-yard effort against West Virginia.
