Party at the Moontower…err…I mean Texas Bowl

(Guest Post by Matthew Ladner)

So the Razorbacks and the Longhorns are renewing their ancient gridiron hatred this year in the Texas Bowl in Houston. Two teams will enter and one team will leave with (insert drumroll) a winning record on the season!

Ah how the mighty have fallen-the records of both teams stand at a lowly 6 wins and 6 losses. Sigh. At least this provides 14 badly needed additional days of practice for the rebuilding from scratch Longhorns.

My prediction: Texas 6, Arkansas 3. University of Texas at Austin cultural ambassador at large Matthew McConaughey promises to close the windows before engaging in the traditional post-victory bongo naked ritual.

What is your prediction?

  1. The Hogs are probably better than their record given that every loss was to a nationally ranked team. So I predict an Arkansas victory. That being said, to paraphrase Abba Eban — we never miss a chance to miss a chance.

    Texas losses were to BYU, UCLA, OU, Baylor, KSU and TCU- all nationally ranked when we played them.

    Texas is working with a makeshift OL and a first year starting QB, so scoring points is a chore and undermines the effectiveness of the defense, which is otherwise pretty stout.
