The UTEP Miners opened the season with a 24-14 win over Stephen F. Austin but this will be a different game against Texas. Gavin Hardison threw for 212 yards, with a touchdown, and an interception. Deion Hankins led the rushing attack with 113 yards on 17 carries with 2 touchdowns. Jacob Cowing had 7 catches for 116 yards.

The Texas Longhorns took a step back last season dropping to 8-5 after winning 10 games in 2018. The offense is led by Sam Ehlinger who through for 3,663 yards and 32 touchdowns last season. The rushing attack returns Keyontae Ingram with 853 rushing yards with 7 TDs and Roschon Johnson with 649 rushing yards and 7 TDs. They also added five-star recruit Bijan Robinson to the mix. The defense will need to take a step up this season as they were not very good last season.

UTEP is a very bad team. Their win in their first game equaled the number of wins they had in each of the last two seasons. al from each of the last two seasons. Texas did not have any spring ball so they will probably use this game more as a scrimmage. This is a lot of points to give in an opening game when you don't know exactly what you are going to get.

Play on UTEP. This is a 6* play.
