Houston is hurting from massive floods in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. On Wednesday, the Texas football team sent a message of support for victims including a link for donations.

In a video posted on Twitter, Longhorns from around the Houston area lent their support to the relief fund set up by Houston Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt, who so far has raised more than $6 million through the crowdfunding site YouCaring.com.
