Countdown to Texas’ kickoff: 51 days

Posted July 13th, 2017


Let’s use Texas’ roster, history and scouting reports to countdown to the start of the 2017 football season. Today, we are only 51 days away from Texas’ home game against Maryland.

Which Longhorn wears No. 51? Junior Terrell Cuney, a 6-3, 315-pound center who has appeared in two games at Texas. UT fans may remember seeing OL Donald Hawkins in that jersey from 2012-13.

Who also wears No. 51? Texas Tech OL Tony Morales (12 starts in 2016); Iowa State OL Julian Good-Jones (11 starts); TCU OL Austin Schlottmann (11 starts)


Fun fact about No. 51: Doak Walker Award winner D’Onta Foreman logged a school-record 51 rushing attempts in a 24-21 loss to Kansas in 2016. Remove junior Chris Warren III from the equation, and the seven running backs left on Texas’ 2017 roster have combined for 57 carries in their collegiate careers.
