Before the Texas Longhorns take on the Rice Owls this Saturday in a bounce-back game at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium, check out the newest Burnt Orange Nation podcast.

Wescott Eberts and Cameron Parker discuss junior Casey Thompson’s battle to become a starter after serving as Sam Ehlinger’s backup for the last two seasons and the swagger he brings at quarterback.

Plus, they touch on the troubling communication breakdowns that have occurred on both offense and defense — are the new schemes too much from offensive coordinator Kyle Flood and defensive coordinator Pete Kwiatkowski?

Then they wrap up with a quick look at Rice and the gameplan that Texas should follow to make easy work of a Rice team that struggles to do anything well offensively, but in particular has thrown interceptions at a high frequency.
