College football is roughly two weeks underway (if you don’t count Week 0.)

That means it’s ... projection season.

Per 247Sports, at their current pace, the Texas Longhorns are projected for a Cheez-It Bowl appearance, where they would hypothetically face off against the North Carolina State Wolfpack.

From 247Sports: “The Longhorns gained the respect of everyone nationally following Saturday’s hard-fought loss to Alabama and played better than the Crimson Tide much of the afternoon. The incoming injury news on quarterback Quinn Ewers is vital to this program’s long-term success this fall and if it has a shot to stay in the Big 12 race potentially without its leader on offense. Texas played well enough to upset the top-ranked reigning SEC champs, but it didn’t happen.”
