Countdown to Texas’ kickoff: 10 days

Posted August 23rd, 2017


Let’s use Texas’ roster, history and scouting reports to countdown to the start of the 2017 football season. Today, we are only 10 days away from Texas’ home game against Maryland.

Which Longhorn wears No. 10? Texas retired Vince Young’s number in 2008, so UT fans last saw No. 10 on the field when there were 19 seconds left in the 2006 Rose Bowl.

Who also wears No. 10? San Jose State DB Maurice McKnight (68 tackles, 2 interceptions) in 2016); Iowa State DB Brian Peavy (62 tackles, 11 PBUs); Iowa State QB Jacob Park (1,791 passing yards, 12 TDs); Oklahoma DB Steven Parker (63 tackles, 2 interceptions)


Fun fact about No. 10: Texas intercepted only 10 passes last year, which ranked in a tie for fifth in the Big 12. All 10 of those interceptions, though, were recorded against conference quarterbacks, so only two teams (Kansas State and TCU) bettered UT’s numbers in Big 12 play.
