Texas Longhorns head coach Steve Sarkisian is among the new guys in town for 2021.
He could also be among the most successful, 247Sports notes.
From 247Sports: “The Longhorns have a top-25 roster and should be a top-25 team on the field. The feeling here is Texas finishes with less than the three Big 12 losses Tom Herman delivered the proud program last season. The Longhorns should improve as the season develops, but they might be a year or two away from contending with Oklahoma for the conference title again.”

NEWS ACROSS THE FORTY ACRES AND BEYOND
- Texas baseball takes on the Texas State Bobcats this evening.
- Colt McCoy is checking out Texas’ spring practice this offseason.
- 247Sports is projecting Texas will play the Oregon Ducks in the Alamo Bowl this year. Sound like a familiar matchup? That’s because it is. From 247Sports: “Unless two Pac-12 teams reach the New Year’s Six, the conference’s second-best team will be slotted to the Alamo Bowl against a quality finisher from the Big 12. Expect Steve Sarkisian to put an impressive team on the field during his first season with the Longhorns, who have several all-league caliber starters coming back. Oregon and Texas have only played six times, the last two coming during bowl season. Two teams that will be ranked inside the preseason Top 25 come August, both are itching to reach the New Year’s Six — not meet in San Antonio.”
Texas now losing 31-7 after dropping last year's Alamo Bowl to Oregon 30-7. Not a very encouraging pattern.— Kirk Bohls (@kbohls) December 30, 2014
