Let’s use Texas’ roster, history and scouting reports to countdown to the start of the 2017 football season. Today, we are only 31 days away from Texas’ home game against Maryland.

Which Longhorn wears No. 31? Senior safety Jason Hall, whose 28 starts make him the most-seasoned player on Texas’ roster. A hamstring injury sidelined Hall throughout part of the spring, but he is coming off a 52-tackle season. Walk-on LB Kyle Hrncir also wears No. 31.

Who also wears No. 31? San Jose State DB Ethan Aguayo (53 tackles in 2016); Oklahoma DE Ogbonnia Okoronkwo (71 tackles, nine sacks); Oklahoma State DB Tre Flowers (61 tackles, 7 PBUs)

Fun fact about No. 31:  During the 2016 season, Texas scored 31.9 points per game. That ranked 46th among the NCAA’s 128 FBS-level programs.
