Countdown To Football Season: 116 Days

Our daily countdown to the return of Texas football continues with yet another reason to love the fall in Austin.

Onward with the countdown - today featuring Brian Orakpo, seen above taking down Reggie Bush in the flat during the national championship game. Orakpo, who's been giving Texas solid production as a third-down pass rush beast and strong backup to Brian Robison and Tim Crowder, will now be the 'Horns primary right defensive end. He's steadily improved his strength and ability to provide strong run support - a big breakout season in 2007 wouldn't shock me at all.
