Longhorn football got off to a slow start with a first-game loss to Maryland. Texas picked up the following week, and the team was able to win the second game of the season against Tulsa.

The University of Texas football season kicked off the first game Sept. 1, against Maryland. Maryland scored a touchdown on the team’s first possession. Texas answered not long after with a 39-yard pass from quarterback Sam Ehlinger to Devin Duvernay, who made a tremendous catch for a Longhorn touchdown, tying the game 7-7 in the first quarter.

Texas ended the first half strong and was able to take the lead against Maryland, 29-24, in the third quarter. The Longhorn defense was able to hold Maryland off and keep the team from scoring in the third quarter, but Maryland came back with gusto.

Maryland made a touchdown in the first minute of the fourth quarter. Then, after an 86-minute weather delay, UT came back onto the field and had two interceptions and one fumble to end the game.

The Longhorns were not able to redeem themselves this year after the 51-41 loss against Maryland last year. However, UT was able to grasp a victory against Tulsa Sept. 8.

The Longhorns started off strong, gaining a 21-point lead over Tulsa but were not able to hold off the Golden Hurricane’s offense for the entire game. Tulsa ended up scoring three touchdowns during the game, and UT ended up scraping by with only a 7-point win over Tulsa, with a final score of 28-21.

Looking ahead to the rest of the season, Texas has chances to redeem themselves from previous losses, with the hope of holding on to their winning streak.

The next game, Sept. 15, will have UT facing USC. Last year, the Longhorns lost to USC in double overtime, making Saturday’s game a must-see event for all Longhorn and USC fans alike.

Sept. 22, the Longhorns will face off against TCU. This matchup has proven to be a challenge for UT in the past, as the team has lost its last four meetings with the Horned Frogs by an average of 30 points per game. The Longhorns hope to break the losing streak this year.

UT will face off against Kansas State in week five of college football at the Wildcats’ stadium. The Longhorns were able to scrape by with an overtime win against the Wildcats last year on their home field in Austin, but UT has not been able to bring home a win on the Wildcats’ turf since 2002.

Week six for the Longhorns brings a long-time rival, the University of Oklahoma. This game will be a chance for the Longhorns to redeem themselves from their close loss against OU last year, 29-24.

UT will face off against Baylor Oct. 13, hoping to keep up their winning streak. Last year, the Longhorns were able to take a victory over the Bears, 38-7.

After a bye week, the Longhorns will face OSU, a team they lost to 10-13 last season. That game will be played Oct. 27.

West Virginia will be looking for revenge Nov. 3, after UT beat them 28-14 last season, and Texas Tech will see if they can snatch another victory over the Longhorns Nov. 10.

The last two UT games of the regular season will be Nov. 17 against Iowa State, who Texas beat 17-7 last year, and Nov. 23 against Kansas, who Texas beat last season 42-27.
