Texas football got a significant win this weekend to get the road monkey off its back in a big way. Head coach Steve Sarkisian and No. 24 ranked Texas was able to down head coach Chris Klieman and the No. 13 ranked Kansas State Wildcats on the road at Bill Snyder Family Stadium in Manhattan on Nov. 5.

Following the 34-27 win on the road over Kansas State this weekend, the Longhorns have now won four of the last five games. Texas now gets to return home for a game that will play a big role in deciding the two teams that compete in the Big 12 Championship Game on Dec. 3.

In Week 11, Sark and the Longhorns will face new head coach Sonny Dykes and the undefeated TCU Horned Frogs.

TCU comes into this game with a record of 9-0 (6-0 Big 12) following a 34-24 win over the Texas Tech Red Raiders at home at Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth on Nov. 5. Following the win over the Red Raiders in Week 10, TCU managed to crack the top five in the AP Poll for the first time this season.

This is also the first time that the Horned Frogs cracked the top five in the AP Poll since the 2017 season, where it also ranked No. 4 at the peak.

Here’s a look at the opening betting odds as Texas gets set to host TCU at home at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin on Nov. 12, with the kickoff time set for 6:30 p.m. CT.

Texas opens up as a seven-point favorite over TCU in this game. And the over/under opens up at 64.5 points.

According to the ESPN Football Power Index, Texas has a 73.0 percent chance of beating TCU.

Texas won last season’s contest against the Horned Frogs, taking home a one-possession victory over TCU. The Longhorns and Horned Frogs have also split the last four meetings in this series during the last four seasons.

It’s worth noting that the meeting between Texas and TCU next weekend will be the first time in this series that both teams have new head coaches since the early 1990s when Pat Sullivan and John Mackovic were both respective first-year head coaches.

This might wind up being the biggest game remaining on the regular season schedule for the Longhorns. If Texas can beat TCU next weekend, that will put it in the driver’s seat to get one of the two spots in the Big 12 Championship Game with just two contests remaining for the regular season.
