Texas is riding a wave of momentum after a 20 point win over No. 23 Louisiana in the season opener, but they have a tough task ahead of them in Week 2 as they travel to Fayetteville to face Arkansas in a sold-out stadium.
In Steve Sarkisian’s first game as head coach for Texas it seemed like the Longhorns were clicking on all cylinders. They were moving the ball down field with ease, the defense was able to contain the Ragin’ Cajuns, and special teams also performed well aside from the one missed field goal attempt.
Now, Texas must show that they can replicate that success in what will be their first road game of the season. How will the hostile environment impact the play of redshirt freshman quarterback Hudson Card?
The Longhorns are hoping that more receivers are able to get involved as Jordan Whittington, who recorded 7 catches for 113 yards and a touchdown in Week 1, was the lone standout of the group. Texas also needs the offensive line to step it up, as the Ragin’ Cajuns were getting constant pressure on the Texas quarterbacks.
Sarkisian stayed true to his plan to play both Card and Casey Thompson, and it will be interesting to see how soon or late Thompson meanders on to the field to take some snaps against Arkansas.
We’re now only hours away from kick off. Take a look at some of the pregame buzz taking place across social media before the game.
