The No. 20 Texas Longhorns have one more chance to impact the story of this season. A win over the Colorado Buffaloes gets them to a 7-3 record, which is a disappointing finish but will hopefully allow Texas to create the offseason momentum they’ve had for three previous seasons.
Colorado comes into the game trying to close out a season that was more successful than anyone expected in 2020. After being picked to finish second to last in their division, the Buffaloes had a shot at playing in the Pac-12 championship game, much credit to the new coaching staff and running back Jarek Broussard.
If Texas can get both running backs going again and allow Sam to spread it around fast and often, I feel like the offense can pay back a season’s worth of letting Chris Ash’s squad carry the team.

Karl Dorrell hasn’t reinvented the wheel. He has taken a relatively talented roster (by recent CU standards) and beat the teams that he could have beaten. It’s just the understated competence he carries that has been so rare in Boulder — Dorrell has put talented players in the position to win games. It’s a nice change of pace.
