The Texas baseball team built on its momentum and toppled the No. 2 team in the country.

Texas Sports

The Texas Longhorns basketball team’s road woes continued, giving up a double-digit lead against the Baylor Bears before losing by 19 to the Texas Tech Red Raiders. Sandwiched between those disappointing losses was a 20-point win over the Iowa State Cyclones. Texas needs to figure out how to close out the regular season with a win against the TCU Horned Frogs to finish above .500 (2:49)

While basketball faltered, the Texas baseball team came away with a series sweep over No. 2 LSU Tigers, thanks to a walkoff RBI from Austin Todd. Can Texas build on the momentum and knock off another top team on the road as they travel to Palo Alto to take on the Stanford Cardinal? (8:21)

On the gridiron, Texas picked up not one, but two major commitments from offensive lineman, as guard Parker Braun and tackle Willie Tyler pledged to the Longhorns. What impact does this have on the 2019 offense and how can Texas capitalize on the momentum moving forward? (19:05)

Kyle and Gerald close the show out by honoring one of the best traditions in all of college sports, Big Bertha, as they Bang the Drum (44:48). Kyle nerds out about baseball mysticism, while Gerald celebrates a recruit’s major accomplishment.
