Longhorns Daily News: Joel Klatt on CFP field: ‘Texas is an obvious one for me’

Plus: Texas volleyball takes on BYU tonight

NCAA Football: Texas at Baylor Chris Jones-USA TODAY Sports

Fox Sports analyst Joel Klatt recently broke down some of his favorite programs going into the College Football Playoff decision. Naturally, that included the Texas Longhorns.

“Texas is an obvious one for me and it’s not because of what the quarterback did,” Klatt said, per On3. “It’s actually not just because of the result against Alabama, although that helps. It’s not just because of Steve Sarkisian and the way he calls plays, although that helps. It’s not just Xavier Worthy and some of the skill position players on the outside, although that helps. Do you know why Texas is real? It’s because they’re real at the line of scrimmage.”

He later added, “Their defense is consistent and it’s consistently good. They can run the ball. They went out against Alabama, what I categorize as a pretty good defense, and they ended the game on the field in the last seven minutes. That’s what makes them real.”
