The Texas Longhorns are now split into the Orange and White teams as head coach Tom Herman prepares to take this team through a light walk through on Friday evening before the spring-ending scrimmage on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. Central on Longhorn Network.
Fortunately, the rain chances are now down to 60% on the day, but scattered thunderstorms are predicted throughout the morning, afternoon, and into the evening, so the situation may be fluid on Saturday.
As of Thursday evening, athletics director Chris Del Conte was planning on playing the game as scheduled. The school confirmed that statement on Friday afternoon.
