Coming off the win against Kansas State, the Longhorns are hoping to use some newfound confidence against Iowa State. This week,it will fall on Texas’ defense to stop ISU’s talented offense and execute at the level it did in the second half against Kansas State.
Texas is still in a position to play a marquee opponent during bowl season. Depending on its next three games, fans may be seeing the Longhorns against blue-blood opponents like Notre Dame or the University of Southern California.
As a reminder, I’m not an expert by any stretch of the imagination. I’m just a college student who watches too much college football and places bets he can’t afford — like most of y’all.

Texas’ week following its 27-24 win over then-No.16 Kansas State has been up and down. On one hand, the Longhorns are still in the hunt for a Big 12 Championship Game berth and are inching closer toward having a healthy roster for the first time since Week One. On the other hand, key injuries on offense partnered with back-to-back road games sets them up for a rough end to the season.
