Home not treating Longhorns well

Chris Caraveo

Being at home is overrated.

In the sports world, being at home is supposed to somehow give the host an advantage.

That has not been the case for No. 24 Texas, which enters its last two matches of a 10-match home stand with a 4-4 home record.

The Longhorns finally broke their six-match losing streak last Friday, but quickly found defeat in a contested meeting against No. 6 USC on Sunday. 

This weekend they face No. 17 Michigan and No. 50 Yale. The Wolverines are on a four-match win streak that includes dominating wins over then No. 31 Notre Dame and No. 13 Miami.

The following weekend, the Longhorns will start conference play on the road against TCU and Texas Tech. Maybe the road will treat them better.

Texas begins play Saturday, March 8 at noon against Michigan, and faces Yale on Sunday at noon.
