The idea of a “revenge game” is often overstated in college football. With the amount of roster and coach turnover season to season, each game often takes on a life of its own.
However, it seems legitimate that Texas players have been waiting to get a piece of Kansas since suffering an embarrassing 24-21 loss to the Jayhawks in 2016. First the Longhorns lost their shot at bowl eligibility, then they lost their coach in Charlie Strong. There’s a bad taste left over from that night in Lawrence. There has to be.
The Longhorns (4-5, 3-3 Big 12) will have a chance to take out their anger when they host Kansas (1-8, 0-6) on Saturday.

Texas-Kansas preview, 3 keys to the game
1. Replacing Holton Hill
The Texas defense suffered a blow Tuesday when it was announced that cornerback Holton Hill would be suspended for the rest of the season. Hill had been enjoying the best season of his college career, and was a key piece on the defense that has buoyed the Longhorns all season long. Hill is currently second on the team in tackles with 51 and had 2 interceptions — both of which were returned for touchdowns. Texas coach Tom Herman said either Davante Davis or Josh Thompson would replace Hill in the starting lineup.
2. Again, who’s the quarterback?
Freshman Sam Ehlinger was held out again at TCU because of what Herman called an “inner-ear issue.” He is expected back this week, but will he start? The offense sputtered against the Horned Frogs, but that was more due to the complete lack of a rushing attack than the performance of Shane Buechele. Columnist Cedric Golden argues that it might be time to consider the “nuclear option” — Jerrod Heard.
3. Strictly business
Texas should have learned its lesson after losing to Kansas last year, but that was under a different staff. The players know the Jayhawks have struggled, but they can’t afford a letdown that might cost them a potential bowl berth. The Longhorns took care of business two weeks ago at Baylor. Can they buckle down and assert dominance over another lesser opponent?
