For all those pessimistic prognosticators in your favorite media, neighborhood and family, you can take heart that, since 2000, Texas is 10-0 at home, 4-0 on the road vs. ranked Big 12 teams. The problem is on neutral fields (OU and Big 12 championship games) where Texas is only 4-6 (although they are 4-1 since 2005). Message?
Mack Brown knows how to coach this game and the players will be ready.
The problem games for the Horns since 2000 have been the "trap" games against unranked teams (Texas Tech 2002, 2003, A&M 2006, 2007, Kansas State 2006, 2007).
Good news- the only games Texas has left against unranked teams are both at home (Baylor, A&M).
