    The Texas Longhorns went into Lubbock and in spite of building a halftime lead came away with a 37-34 overtime loss to the Texas Tech Red Raiders. Texas managed to battle back in the first quarter, building a 10-point halftime lead, but the offense's inability to extend a drive in the second half. Three of the final four drives of the game ended with punts, including a drive that gave Texas Tech the ball back with five minutes left in the game. The defense, who was on the field for nearly 100 plays, was unable to get a stop and the Red Raiders put a field goal through with 21 seconds left on the clock. Texas drove down and tied the game as time expired, but Texas Bijan Robinson fumbled the ball in the first overtime and set Texas Tech up for the game-winning drive. Now, at 2-2 on the year, Texas turns to West Virginia and tries to get back on track in conference play.

    The Texas Longhorns struggled with the UTSA Roadrunners early, falling behind 17-7 after an onside kick and a trick play that took advantage of a seeming lack of focus early. The Longhorns responded by scoring 17 unanswered points to take a 24-17 lead and never looked back. Texas leaned on its star players in this matchup, with running back Bijan Robinson doing the bulk of the work on the ground for Texas — amassing 183 yards and three touchdowns on 20 carries. Roschon Johnson, who was a spark plug for Texas in the first half, did great work on his own, finishing with 81 yards on 11 carries. Defensively, the Roadrunners found success early completing short passes under the Texas defense, with their receivers capitalizing on space created by the Texas blitzes. Second-half adjustments allowed Texas to clamp down on that, holding UTSA to just three points in the second half. Now Texas turns its focus to conference play, hoping to take advantage of a tumultuous year in the Big 12.

    The Texas Longhorns have a lot of lessons they can take from the narrow loss against the Alabama Crimson Tide as they head into the next 10 games. Texas forced the reigning Heisman winner to create Heisman moments on two drives to overcome a fourth-quarter deficit, after forcing six-consecutive punts in the second and third quarters. The Texas offense had a lot going early, but injuries to the first two quarterbacks on the depth chart left Texas scrambling to make plays late. With opportunities to make plays all over the field, what were we the proudest of for the Longhorns, and what are the biggest opportunities moving forward?

    The Texas Longhorns came into the game as double-digit underdogs at home, but the No. 1 team in the country had to depend on its kicker and the Alabama Crimson Tide won it 20-19. Texas played the majority of the game without quarterback Quinn Ewers, who left the game in the first quarter due to an injury. The Longhorns took a 19-16 lead late, but Heisman winner Bryce Young led Alabama on a game-winning drive to close it out. The defense forced six consecutive punts and frustrated the offense for the majority of the game, save for two long drives in the second half. There's plenty of success to build on moving forward, but there are no moral victories in football.

Offensively, the Longhorns' first drive, and quarterback Quinn Ewers' first passes, left a lot to be desired, but after the young signal caller settled in, Texas was able to move the ball well against an outmatched defense. Tight end Ja'Tavion Sanders was one of the biggest highlights of the evening, with the most reception yards by a tight end since Jermichael Finley. Texas also started to hopefully gain some answers on the defensive side of the ball with DeMarvion Overshown and Barryn Sorrell leading the charge in the trenches.

    The Texas Longhorns were massive favorites over the ULM Warhawks in this one and did what you should do against an outmatched team, cruised to a 52-10 win in the season opener. After a shaky opening possession in which quarterback Quinn Ewers saw his first second-ever pass attempt intercepted, the Longhorns started to roll thanks — in large part to Ewers and his right arm. The freshman finished the game 16/24 for 225 yards and two touchdowns, connecting with Ja'Tavion Sanders and Bijan Robinson for scores. Speaking of Robinson, it was a light but productive day for the star running back, finishing his day in the third quarter with 10 carries for 71 yards and a touchdown for his efforts. Perhaps, the defense was the biggest story for Texas, keeping ULM out of the endzone until the fourth quarter when the second and third-string players were in.

For the first time in two decades, the Horned Frogs opened fall camp without Gary Patterson on the coaching staff. In his place is Sonny Dykes, after moving across town from SMU and bringing much of the staff and recruiting class with him. The philosophies from years past will obviously change, shifting from a defensive-minded head coach to one that spent time learning under Mike Leach as a position coach and co-offensive coordinator. Similarly, TCU is shifting from the four-man fronts they played for years under Patterson to a 3-3-5 alignment under Joe Gillespie. With all of that change happening, TCU brings back significant talent from a year ago, with 80% of last year's contributors returning. That puts them second in the conference behind the Kansas Jayhawks. So what are the expectations for the newly-redesigned Horned Frogs?

    Longhorn Republic: July 28, 2022 - Oklahoma State Preview

    The Texas Longhorns run the gauntlet to start the regular season, going eight games without a bye week. They end that run against a team likely to be in contention for a conference championship, the Oklahoma State Cowboys, a team that erased a double-digit lead a year ago to beat the Longhorns in Austin. The Cowboys lost several key pieces of a team that was a play away from a conference championship a year ago but has plenty of talent to reload and make another run. Offensively, the Cowboys lost their two top producers to the NFL, but return Spencer Sanders, a four-year starter who was just named the preseason first-team All-Big 12 quarterback. Defensively, Oklahoma State lost its defensive coordinator, as well as its top five tacklers, but does return one of the top pass rushers in the conference, sophomore Collin Oliver, who finished third in the conference in sacks a year ago. Rebuilding the back end of the defense may prove to be much easier with the elite front they should field in 2022.

    Longhorn Republic: July 25, 2022 - Previewing the Running Backs

    It's pretty easy to say that the biggest strength the Texas Longhorns possess offensively is the parade of talent housed in the running backs room.  The group is headlined by Bijan Robinson, who fully stepped into his talent a year ago and emerged as one of the top running backs in the country. In the second year under Steve Sarkisian, Robinson has the opportunity to solidify himself as the top RB in the nation and help Texas achieve its goals in 2022. Helping carry the load is senior Roschon Johnson, looking to close out his Longhorn career on a high note, after changing positions as a freshman to help out the team.  We talk realistic expectations for the group, what should the workload be to ensure fresh legs, and how does this set them up for 2023 and beyond?

    We continue our trek through the Texas Longhorns' 2022 schedule, this time diving in on the Iowa State Cyclones. Texas has no end of trouble with Iowa State in recent memory, dropping three straight to the Cyclones -- including a trip to the woodshed last year in Ames. But the 2022 Cyclones are looking for answers of their own after losing the long-time core of their offense, quarterback Brock Purdy, running back Breece Hall, and a pair of NFL tight ends. What can we expect from Iowa State in 2022? Are they rebuilding or reloading? Defensively, Iowa State has to replace its four top tacklers from a year ago, but defensive guru Jon Heacock returns one of the best pass rushers in the country in Will McDonald. What will the renowned defensive mind cook up for the Cyclones in 2022 to keep offenses on their toes? Connect with the show on Twitter and Facebook.

Joining Venables is offensive coordinator Jeff Lebby, coming off of two seasons as the offensive coordinator at Ole Miss, and his former all-conference quarterback Dillon Gabriel at the helm. Venables and defensive coordinator Todd Bates inherit a defense that needs to replace NFL talent in the trenches but will have an opportunity to reverse a negative trend under former defensive coordinator Alex Grinch.

    The month of June was great for the Texas Longhorns on the recruiting trail, landing 12 of their 18 overall commitments, including No. 1 overall player Arch Manning. Manning's commitment started a wave of momentum, propelling Texas to nine other commitments -- including adding two additional five-star players. The commitments shot Texas up as nigh as No. 2 in the recruiting rankings, but movement in early July has Texa settling in comfortably at No. 4 in the country. So where do we think Texas will end up in February when all of the ink is dry? To help us break down the current state of recruiting, we reached out to Hudson Standish of Horns247 to add some layers to the conversation.

    The journey toward the 2022 Texas Longhorns' season continues with a preview of the West Virginia Mountaineers, a team that handed Texas an eight-point loss a year ago and sealed a losing season in the first year of the Steve Sarkisian era. West Virginia will look quite different from a year ago, with new coordinators on both sides of the ball and rotating talent -- both transfers in and out -- that will likely shape the season for them. Graham Harrell has a high-ceiling quarterback in JT Daniels but may not know what he has at the wide receiver position until a few weeks before the season. Defensively, WVU has to replace its top three tacklers and will take the field without one of the Stills brothers on the defense for what feels like the first time this century.

National media, outside of the sports realm, picked up on the commitment that quickly dominated the sports news cycle. Then, within 72 hours of his commitment, Texas and the college football world saw the actual impact of the commitment, with Texas adding six other commitments to the class -- including a second 5* player from Louisiana. With the additions, Texas jumped from the double-digits in the overall class rankings to No. 3 overall and became one of just four schools nationally to have multiple five-star players committed.

    We are inching ever closer to the start of the 2022 football season, which means we are starting our week-by-week breakdowns of the Texas Longhorns schedule. With 86 days left before kickoff, we start with the first opponent on the schedule, the Louisiana Monroe Warhawks, who are coming off of what could be considered a resurgent season despite the 4-8 record. Under new head coach Terry Bowden, the Warhawks showed immediate improvement from the 2020 pandemic season, a year in which they played 10 games and never held a lead. That season ended the tenure of Matt Viator and ushered in the Bowden era. After one year, Bowden had to reshuffle his coaching staff as offensive coordinator Rich Rodriguez bolted for Jacksonville State and took much of the coaching staff with him. Bowden opted to bring back a name familiar with ULM to fill the void, former ULM offensive coordinator Matt Kubic. Kubic spent four years as the Warhawks' offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, during which the Warhawks' offense helped lead them to a 9-4 record.

    The Texas Longhorns took care of business in both the Austin Regional and in Oklahoma City, continuing what is turning out to be a very successful semester for the spring sports. While there were fireworks in several other regionals, the baseball team seemingly cruised to a super regional berth, with a three-run win over the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs sandwiched between two lopsided wins over the Air Force Falcons. The Longhorns got quality starts from their top two starters, with Pete Hansen and Lucas Gordon giving up just four runs in their starts, while the Longhorns scored 26 runs over the weekend. The softball team's weekend was a little more dramatic than the baseball team, but they still managed to come out on top and become the first team in school history to reach the WCWS finals. After knocking off Oklahoma State twice on Monday, the Longhorns now face the Oklahoma Sooners - who have dropped just three games all season. However, one of those three was to Texas, snapping their winning streak.
