The No. 3 Texas Longhorns came into the season with the goal to win the Big 12, believing that would set them up for a chance to play for a national championship.

Four months, 12 wins, and one Big 12 Trophy later, their belief was rewarded with a berth in the College Football Playoffs and the hard work will seemingly pay off in their matchup with the Washington Huskies in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans on Monday, vying for a spot in the CFP Championship. Both teams are battle-tested, with Washington knocking off the Oregon Ducks not once, but twice in the year — somehow as the underdog in the final game — en route to an undefeated regular season. Conversely, Texas stumbled in Dallas against the Oklahoma Sooners and looked shaky as they dealt with midseason injuries, but closed the season blistering hot, beating Texas Tech and Oklahoma State by a combined 106-28 in their final two games.

So now, after a month of media coverage, rest, and prep time, the teams square off in the Sugar Bowl to determine who will play the winner of Michigan and Alabama for the National TItle.

“Another rematch,” said Ford on Sunday. “Our biggest thing all this year, I think was teams that we lost to last year, giving them our best shot.”

Dillon Johnson, a transfer from Mississippi State, has added a different dimension to Washington’s run game. His powerful running style is super fun to watch. A throwback to an earlier era (think a Frank Gore, Stephen Jackson type), Johnson looks for contact, and he’ll run through you if you’re not careful.
