Which four players for the Texas football program have to do better to finish out the season with a record at least better than .500?
The Texas football program hit a very difficult stretch of late. Five losses on the season makes it up to head Texas football coach Tom Herman to put this team back on the rails by with what will only be two games remaining. Texas is bowl eligible at the moment, sitting with a record of 6-5 (4-4 Big 12. But the bowl game that Texas could land in isn’t looking too promising right now.
All the struggles for Texas of late can partly be faulted to coaching, along with injuries and poor individual performances. The star players for this Texas team didn’t live up to the billing through and through this season. A lot of the star players for this team didn’t even get to suit up in half of the games.
Injuries ravaged Texas more so than just about any other team in the Big 12 this season. But a lot of Power Five teams that currently sit within the College Football Playoff top 25 rankings had injury struggles at certain points of the year. Herman can’t completely fault injuries for the five losses he’s racked up in 2019.
The last game of the regular season comes against the in-state Big 12 foe Texas Tech Red Raiders on Nov. 29. This will be the second straight year that Texas takes on a team that doesn’t have a shot to be bowl eligible on Black Friday. Last year, Texas took on the Kansas Jayhawks on the road in Lawrence facing a similar spot.
