On Saturday night the Texas Longhorns start anew. With a new head coach in Charlie Strong and a spotless record, the Longhorns will attempt to reboot their program.
The reality is the Longhorns, who are ranked outside the top 25, are still a few year away from returning to where they were under Mack Brown just a few years ago. Still their rabid fan-base will accept nothing short of a blowout over North Texas in this one.
Coverage of the game between Texas and North Texas will air on the Longhorn Network beginning at 8:00 pm ET from Darrell K Royal Memorial Stadium in Austin, TX.
The Odds: The Texas Longhorns are 26 point favorites against the North Texas Mean Green. The over/under for this contest is 49 total points.
Will the Longhorns start fresh with a blowout win or does the Mean Green give their new season a unpleasantly close call?
