AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Texas Longhorns are down 20.5 points at home if they can beat the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide at 11 a.m. Saturday at DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium. Possibility of returning to a national vision.
Can Quinn Ewers dissect Alabama’s vaunted defense led by 2021 Bronko Nagurski Award winner Will Anderson? Can the Texas defense contain 2021 Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young? Neither scenario seems likely, but that’s why they play games.
