Keaontay Ingram’s 110 rushing yards led the offense against Baylor.

Keaontay Ingram became UT’s first 100-yard rusher since early last season. The No. 9-ranked Texas Longhorns prevailed on Saturday, edging out the Baylor Bears, 23-17. On a day where Sam Ehlinger left the game with a shoulder injury, multiple freshmen stepped up and made key plays in part to victory.

With the help of these true freshman, the Longhorns now sit alone atop the Big 12...

Texas F Royce Hamm Jr. looking to earn increased playing time

The former football player from a difficult upbringing in Greenspoint wants to make his mark on the Forty Acres as a sophomore. In a post-summer feature provided by Texas Longhorns basketball, head coach Shaka Smart had some encouraging things to say about a developing frontcourt player, sophomore forward Royce Hamm Jr. “He got a lot stronger, put on some really good weight with muscle.

Texas WDE commit Peter Mpagi is a dynamic, underrated edge rusher

All of the twitch. Not enough of the hype. Beefing up the defensive front during this recruiting cycle has not been an area of overwhelming success for the Texas Longhorns coaching staff, but landing several defensive ends with speed off the edge and some significant upside has been a bright spot. Do rankings matter? Of course. Does it hurt to miss out on top targets? Of course. But, just for a moment, simply trust in the evaluations of position coach Oscar Giles and the entire Longhorns staff. After all, Giles evaluated and developed Houston superstar Ed Oliver Jr. and produced two Ted...

What Rod Gilmore got wrong about Baylor QB Charlie Brewer and his recruitment by Texas

What Rod Gilmore got wrong about Baylor QB Charlie Brewer and his recruitment by Texas

A lot, basically. Research and thinking are hard. Apparently. Stop us if you’ve heard this one before, but an undersized, standout quarterback from Lake Travis wasn’t offered a scholarship by the Texas Longhorns and went on to success in the Big 12. Sound familiar? If so, that’s because those are the stories of former Heisman winner Baker Mayfield, who walked on at Texas Tech and then at his favorite childhood school, Oklahoma, and Baylor’s Charlie Brewer. If you watched ESPN’s broadcast of the game, you surely knew that Brewer was from Lake Travis and that his father was a Texas...
