How 3-0 Could Mean BCS Championship

Going in to 2011, five Big-12 schools will not return their 2010 starting quarterback. This group happens to line up as the last five games for the Longhorns, in a season intent on reclaiming pride and national respect. Texas SHOULD win their first two contests in Austin, starting the season with Rice and BYU visiting. In week 3, UT will travel west and attempt to avenge last year’s upset in UCLA’s backyard. Although QB Prince is often injured, UCLA’s win will likely resonate in this game, giving the team confidence. UT must be on upset-alert. The ‘horns will have a chance to rest at home (and build up confidence) the following week before going to Iowa State in week 5 to battle the Cyclones. The Red River Rivalry will signal the beginning of Texas’ most difficult stretch of the season starting week 6, facing Oklahoma and a veteran signal-caller in Landry Jones and then welcoming the Oklahoma State Cowboys, with a returning Justin Blackmon, in to Austin week 7. Both Oklahoma teams present veteran offensive players who know how to score and set up the big play. Baylor represents another type of big play, Robert Griffin has the ability to beat you throwing and moving his legs. A young secondary directed by senior safety Blake Gideon must be on notice. Week 9 brings the first of 5 newly anointed starting QB’s in the Big-12, Kansas, Texas Tech, Mizzou, Kansas State, and Texas A&M will all field an offense commanded by a new face. If Texas fends off OU, O State, AND Baylor, slicing through the final five games with decisiveness, the ‘horns could go from 5-7 to National Championship.
