Let’s use Texas’ roster, history and scouting reports to countdown to the start of the 2017 football season. Today, we are only one day away from Texas’ home game against Maryland.
Which Longhorn wears No. 1? Junior WR John Burt, who has recorded 46 receptions, 658 receiving yards and three touchdowns at Texas. Burt has also reached the NCAA Championships in the 110-meter hurdles in each of the past two years.
Who also wears No. 1? Maryland LB D.J. Moore (41 catches for 637 yards, 6 TDs); Maryland LB Jermaine Carter, Jr. (110 tackles, 6 sacks); Oklahoma State WR Jalen McCleskey (73 catches for 812 yards, 7 TDs); Texas Tech LB Jordyn Brooks (86 tackles); Baylor LB Taylor Young (93 tackles, 4.5 sacks)
Fun fact about No. 1: Texas has won 891 games in its history, and only one team has claimed more conquests. Michigan is 935‐334‐36 since 1879. Can Texas run down the Wolverines by the time the two teams meet in Ann Arbor in 2024? (Texas will host Michigan in 2027).
