The upcoming season brings more reasons for optimism for Texas’ football program after a disappointing 5-7 season a year ago.

The Longhorns revamped the roster over the offseason with some major transfer portals and recruiting success. Most notably Texas brought in Ohio State quarterback transfer Quinn Ewers and the nation’s best offensive line recruiting class for the 2022 cycle.
