The Texas Longhorns face yet another tough test early in the season, heading into Fort Worth to try and knock off the TCU Horned Frogs, something they haven’t managed to do since 2013. The Longhorns bring one of the top offenses in the country into the matchup, trying to capitalize on the generational talent they have at running back with Bijan Robinson and the newfound offensive success under quarterback Casey Thompson. TCU has struggled defensively but could take a major step forward defensively after key pieces of that unit return from injury.
Texas also has to contend in a quarterback that has found a ton of success against its defense in the past in Max Duggan, with the added pressure of defending one of the other top running backs in the country — fellow 2020 commit Zach Evans. With the potential for rainy conditions, it could end up as a battle of attrition decided along the trenches on Saturday.
