Checking in from Longhorn Country
They'll kick off tonight at the Big 12 stadium with 18,000 more seats than any in the Big 12, Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium.
The best game of the Big 12 schedule kicks off in about two hours, and you can expect a big atmosphere from the Austin crowd. A good start would help West Virginia negate that advantage, but the big stage is nothing new to this program.
I'll be here providing coverage all night with the boys from HornsNation, as well as our own Mark Schlabach.
Can Texas get enough pressure on Geno Smith? For me, that's what decides the game. Maryland did, but didn't have enough offense to really threaten the Mountaineers, though they held Smith & Co. to just 31 points.
If Texas holds West Virginia to 31 tonight, I think the Longhorns win. That's a big if. We'll see if they're up to the task.
Follow along that game and more on Twitter. See you here for more.
