It all comes down to this. Texas, 5-6 overall, needs one win to become bowl eligible.
The Longhorns and their coach, Charlie Strong, may also need a win for him to remain as coach of the team.
In their way is TCU, a team that beat Texas 50-7 in 2015, but a team that is just 5-5 themselves and also playing for bowl eligibility.
After a wild week of reports surrounding Charlie Strong, possible player boycotts, Matthew McConaughey eulogies and plenty of Tom Herman talk, the Longhorns finally take the field at Royal-Memorial Stadium for the last time in 2016.
