Ah, bowl projections. We all laugh at them, but that doesn’t stop us from looking.
Preseason bowl projections are the most meaningless of all, which in some ways makes them the most fun. And in the case of Texas, just the thought of a bowl trip — any bowl trip — is enough to jog the imagination.

- Sports Illustrated is sending Texas to the Texas Bowl to play Arkansas.
- Jerry Palm from CBS Sports has the Longhorns playing in the Camping World Bowl against Lamar Jackson and Louisville in Orlando.
- Remember the Alamo Bowl? Jason Kirk from SB Nation predicts the Longhorns will stay close to home and play Stanford in San Antonio.

- Texas against Texas A&M in the Texas Bowl. Yeah, right.
