Texas to host several key visitors for season opener vs. Notre Dame

With numerous big-time prospects set to be on the Forty Acres Sept. 4, how well Texas competes against a top 10 Notre Dame team becomes even more significant

texas vs. notre dame

The eyes of the nation will already be upon Texas when Notre Dame walks into Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium Sept. 4, but more importantly, so too will the eyes of numerous key Texas targets set to visit. To this point, names like Marvin Wilson, Walker Little and Baron Browning are the headliners, along with a slew of other key targets for upcoming classes and as expected, recruits are looking for Texas’ recent recruiting success to translate to the field. Charlie Strong and the Longhorns could make a national statement on national television next Sunday against the No. 10-ranked Fighting Irish and an impressive performance could provide Texas with a significant edge for many of its prospects, and in some cases (see Marvin Wilson), it’s necessary to lure them to Austin.
