Countdown to Texas’ kickoff: 91 days

Posted June 3rd, 2017


Let’s use Texas’ roster, history and scouting reports to countdown to the start of the 2017 football season. Today, we are only 91 days away from Texas’ home game against Maryland.

Which Longhorn wears No. 91? Nobody. Former Longhorn DE Bryce Cottrell wore that number from 2013-16. During his time at Texas, Cottrell tackled 11.5 opponents behind the line of scrimmage and founded a vodka company.

Who also wears No. 91? Oklahoma State DT DeQuinton Osborne (12 tackles, 3.5 sacks in 2016); TCU DT L.J. Collier (21 tackles, 4.5 sacks)


Fun fact about No. 91: No freshman at Texas has ever topped the 91-yard run that Chris Warren III recorded against Texas Tech in 2015. Warren is now a junior in Texas’ backfield, but will his freshman-year feat be threatened by one of the new kids? Toneil Carter is an early enrollee who was the only scholarship player who participated in Texas’ spring game. Daniel Young is a three-star recruit out of Spring Westfield High.
