After a truly miserable first season of the Steve Sarkisian era, Texas football gets a fresh start under the lights as the Longhorns host the Orange-White Spring Game on Saturday evening. Despite a 5-7 record, Texas nabbed a top-10 transfer class in the country and added a top-five recruiting class.
The biggest fish will soon be a household name in college football as quarterback Quinn Ewers returned to the Lone Star State after a year at Ohio State. However, Ewers is only the tip of the spear. Texas also added former Alabama tight end Jahleel Billingsley and Wyoming receiver Isaiah Neyor. Alabama receiver Agiye Hall joins later this summer.
With the new faces joining star running back Bijan Robinson and receiver Xavier Worthy, the Longhorns have a real shot to compete for the nation’s top offense if everything comes together. However, almost nothing came together in Sarkisian’s first season as Texas blew numerous leads and lost seven consecutive games for the first time since 1957. There are major issues that need to be addressed before the Longhorns are ready for primetime.
While the game will be broadcast on the Longhorn Network, it will not look like a normal football game. There will not be any score kept or specific opposing teams. Instead, it will feature approximately 100 scrimmaged play capped off with a red zone competition at the end.
