Next up for Texas are the TCU Horned Frogs, a team that has dominated the matchup since joining the Big 12, including an ugly loss for the Longhorns a year ago. But Sonny Dykes’s team looks night-and-day different than the unit that went to the CFP a year ago, currently fighting for bowl eligibility.
Texas is hoping to take advantage of a down year from the Horned Frogs and close the lopsided Big 12 rivalry with a win. Leading the charge is redshirt freshman quarterback Maalik Murphy, who is coming off of two performances that featured mistakes emblematic of a quarterback making his second career start.
