Now that the Longhorns have played four games, and won two of them, we got curious. What is the national perception on where this UT season is headed come December?
As it turns out, opinions are pretty split. It sounds sort of like how the fan base currently feels about Shane Buechele vs. Sam Ehlinger.
So, let’s get to it. Here are a few major media outlets and their projections of where (or if) Texas will be playing a bowl game.
- ESPN.com: “Texas is back” in a money-grab game against Notre Dame at the Camping World Bowl, according to Kyle Bonagura. David M. Hale has the Longhorns playing Tennessee in the Texas Bowl.
- SI.com: Eric Single has Texas finishing off a Hollywood round robin with a trip to Phoenix to play UCLA in the Cactus Bowl.
- USA Today: Erick Smith predicts a Liberty Bowl showdown between the Longhorns and Kentucky on Dec. 30 in Memphis. Better dig out those winter coats.
- CBS Sports: Jerry Palm isn’t convinced that Texas is going to a bowl at all in its first year under Herman.
So there you have it. One-third of the way through the season, you can start planning for some theoretical bowl trips. Don’t go too crazy, because there’s still a lot of football to be played.
