The upcoming Texas-Alabama series is worthy of a celebration. “It’s unlikely either game will become the kind of pivot point as the storied programs’ last meeting — though it could be a Playoff accelerant for either (or maybe even both). But it is exactly the kind of intersectional matchup the sport needs.”

Too many running backs to fail? There are reasons to be excited about the 2018 football season including more experience at QB and a growth surge at wide receiver.

Tom Herman would love multiple Caden Sterns. The five-star safety was a force at practice every day and maintained a straight-A average his first semester.

The baseball team could cinch the Big 12 title if they win their series with TCU and Tech wins their series with Oklahoma State.
