Countdown to Texas’ kickoff: 66 days

Posted June 28th, 2017


Let’s use Texas’ roster, history and scouting reports to countdown to the start of the 2017 football season. Today, we are only 66 days away from Texas’ home game against Maryland.

Which Longhorn wears No. 66? Nobody. The last Longhorn to wear No. 66 was Sedrick Flowers, an offensive lineman from 2011-15.

Who also wears No. 66? San Jose State OL Dominic Fredrickson (two starts in 2016)


Fun fact about No. 66: Texas and Texas Tech have met 66 times before. UT holds a 50-16 lead in the series, and two of those wins were recorded in the first (12-0 in 1928) and most-recent (45-37 in 2016) meetings. The 66th re-match is set for Nov. 24.
