872. TBD. Saturday, Nov 12. 5-4. TBD. 0. 851. Austin, TX

This matchup against new head coach Sonny Dykes and the TCU Horned Frogs turns out to be one of the most crucial games of the Big 12 schedule for Sark and the Longhorns in 2022. Following two straight tough losses on the road to some quality opponents in Oklahoma State and Kansas State, Texas gets a major bounce-back opportunity against an inconsistent TCU team in Week 10.

It also helps that the Longhorns get the Horned Frogs at home on Nov. 12 to try and end the losing streak at two games.

TCU returns a lot of production from last season’s team, despite the coaching change. But there is still plenty of uncertainty that has followed with Dykes experiencing the ups and downs of making the transition back to coaching at the Power Five level.

Texas is able to put together their most complete effort of the season, behind a solid day for the trio of Ewers, Bijan, and Worthy. Sark is also able to get senior wide receiver Tarique Milton involved for his first 100+ yard day of the season in the receiving game. Sophomore running back Jonathon Brooks also has his best day of the season with nearly 100 total yards and one touchdown.

Final score prediction: Texas-45, TCU-21

0. TBD. 6-4. 851. Saturday, Nov 19. 821. Lawrence, KS. TBD

Riding the high of the momentum from the 24-point win over TCU on Nov. 12, the Longhorns will be looking to avenge one of the more embarrassing losses in the recent history of the program on the road against the Kansas Jayhawks on Nov. 19.

This game was circled on the schedule for a while now for the Longhorns. And this team looks completely different than they did a season ago against a lowly Jayhawks team that is still struggling under head coach Lance Leipold in his second year in Lawrence.

Texas’ defense shows up to play and holds Kansas under 250 total yards in this game. The offense rolls to give Texas yet another convincing win and move the winning streak to two games.

Final score prediction: Texas-55, Kansas-14
