Let’s use Texas’ roster, history and scouting reports to count down to the start of the 2017 football season. We are only three days away from Texas’ home game against Maryland.
Which Longhorn wears No. 3? Senior WR Armanti Foreman, who recorded team-highs in catches (34) and receiving yards (420) in 2016. Fun fact: Foreman once wore No. 83 at Texas.
Who also wears No. 3? West Virginia LB Al-Rasheed Benton (80 tackles in 2016); Maryland K Adam Greene (9 FGs, 37 EXPTs); TCU WR Shaun Nixon (47 catches for 501 yards, 1 TD in 2015)
Fun fact about No. 3: Texas has won three Big 12 championships, and the school’s 118-56 mark in Big 12 play has been bested by only Oklahoma (129-45). In its triumphant appearances in the Big 12’s title game, Texas beat Nebraska (37-27 in 1996, 13-12 in 2009) and Colorado (70-3 in 2005).
