Countdown to Texas’ kickoff: 69 days

Posted June 25th, 2017


Let’s use Texas’ roster, history and scouting reports to countdown to the start of the 2017 football season. Today, we are only 69 days away from Texas’ home game against Maryland.

Which Longhorn wears No. 69? Junior offensive lineman Austin Allsup, a walk-on who hasn’t yet played at Texas. DL Corey Bradford, OL Terrance Young and DL Kyle Kriegel have also worn Allsup’s jersey this millennium.

Who also wears No. 69? Kansas OL Mesa Ribordy (11 starts in 2016)


Fun fact about No. 69: No Texas freshman has recorded more one-on-one tackles than Duane Duncum, who had 69 solo stops in 1986. Malcolm Roach led the UT freshmen with his 25 solo tackles in 2016.
