The 7-5 Longhorns will face off with the 11-2 Utah Utes. The Utes had dreams of the college football playoff shattered last weekend, falling in the Pac 12 title game to Oregon, 37-15.
The Utes have been carried by a physical running game, downfield play action passing game, and a dominant defense.
The disappointing Longhorns represent a lot of unknowns as the composition of the Texas staff and program motivation are big questions marks.
The Longhorns opened up as -6.5 point underdogs.
