The Texas Longhorns come out of non-conference play 2-1 and get ready to compete in the Big 12 for the first time under new head coach Steve Sarkisian. Up first is a tough test, the Texas Tech Red Raiders who are coming to town looking a bit different than they have in years past. The Red Raiders are led by their defense, coming off of three solid performances to open the season. They were a few plays away from a much different story, but the defense stepped up when it needed to in order to secure the wins.

However, the Red Raiders will definitely rely on some expected names - SaRodorick Thompson and Eric Ezukanma - to set the pace for their offense as they try to come into Austin and win for the first time in four years. So what do we expect from the Red Raiders and how does Texas match up? Will they be able to play their game against a tough Texas Tech defense?
