What Texas fans need to know ahead of the ‘Horns first bowl game since 2014.

NCAA Football: Texas at West Virginia Ben Queen-USA TODAY Sports

Ending at 7-6 instead of 6-7 may not dramatically change the record books, but finishing the year with momentum and a winning record is crucial for Tom Herman and the Texas Longhorns.

Texas will face the Missouri Tigers (6-6) on Wednesday night at 8 pm CST at NRG Stadium. The game will be on ESPN.

Though Vegas is predicting a close contest, Missouri is the favorite by anywhere from 2.5 to three points, depending on where you are betting.

This is likely due to the fact that the ‘Horns will be missing several key contributors in what may have been an even match-up even if Texas was at full strength. Texas stars Connor Williams, Holton Hill, and DeShon Elliott will not suit up due to preparing for the NFL draft, and the ‘Horns also suspended three players, including second-leading wide-receiver Lil’Jordan Humphrey. Furthermore, star linebacker Malik Jefferson will likely miss the game with a toe injury, and defensive-lineman Chris Nelson will be out with an elbow injury.

Yikes.

Despite the injuries, Todd Orlando will need to have his defense ready to contain yet another stellar QB in Drew Locke, as the Missouri gunslinger could be a quality NFL draft pick this year. On offense, the line will look to hold up enough for Shane Buechele to be effective.

It won’t be easy, but bowl games shouldn’t be.
