Primetime College Football: Raiders vs Horns
Last year University of Texas Longhorn quarterback Colt McCoy stood on the sideline in stunned silence as thousands stormed the field after the upset last year.The Texas quarterback rallied the Longhorns into the lead, then watched as Texas Tech drove to Michael Crabtree’s winning touchdown catch with 1 second left on the biggest play of the 2008 season.
Now the Red Raiders (2-0) are coming to Austin and revenge is the buzzword of the week, even if the second-ranked Longhorns (2-0) are publicly trying to avoid it.
The loss forced a three-way tie in the Big 12 South, bumping the Longhorns out of a chance to play for the Big 12 title. That honor went to Oklahoma, a team Texas beat on the field. Without a chance to play Missouri – another team Texas beat – they were out of the BCS title game.Texas Tech University head coach Mike Leach can expect 100,000 Texas fans to be thinking revenge the entire night, especially after seeing highlights of Crabtree’s TD catch all week.
With the game so early into the season it’s easy for what these two teams have done this year to be overshadowed and just focus on last year match-up.
PICK: University of Texas Longhorns
