With the change to the schedule, the Texas Longhorns get an extra week to prepare for their matchup against the UTEP Miners. Head coach Tom Herman called it a Week 0 for them, giving them opportunities to refine the new systems even more before taking the field for the first time.

Texas also added not one, but two graduate transfers to rooms that needed some depth and experience, with Gabriel Watson joining the running backs and Brenden Schooler joining the wide receivers.
