Longhorns Daily News: Houston’s Dana Holgorsen: Texas is ‘good everywhere. I mean everywhere.’

Plus: It’s a good day to be a Longhorn

NCAA Football: West Virginia at Houston Maria Lysaker-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Cougars had their moment in the sun last week when they beat the West Virginia Mountaineers – Houston head coach Dana Holgorsen’s previous gig – in the final seconds, embarrassing West Virginia as their quarterback attempted to wave off the Houston crowd. Now, Houston faces another steep challenge in the Texas Longhorns.

Holgorsen recognizes as much, according to Inside Texas.

“They’re good everywhere. They’re big everywhere. They’re talented everywhere,” Holgorsen said, per Inside Texas. “They’re very deep…so we’ll be excited about playing this game. We haven’t played them in 20 years and our fanbase is obviously gonna be excited. It’s going to be sold-out. We haven’t had a sellout here in a long time. Just a quality opponent coming in. They’re good everywhere. I mean everywhere. They’re good on all three sides. It’s far and away our biggest challenge yet this year.”
