This weekend, Texas football and head coach Steve Sarkisian will participate in the last Saturday of game prep and install before the regular season opener on Sep. 2 against the Rice Owls at home at DKR, with the kickoff time set for 2:30 p.m. CT. This comes after Sark and Texas wrapped up fall camp following the second fall scrimmage on Aug. 19.
Texas has barely over one week before the regular season opener against Rice on Sep. 2. The Longhorns have a chance to build momentum heading into the biggest non-conference game of the season, in Week 2 against the Alabama Crimson Tide on the road in Tuscaloosa.
Texas football’s final projected two-deep depth chart heading into Week 1
Install and game prep is important for the Longhorns to get their rotations and personnel formations set before the primetime non-conference showdown between Texas and Alabama.
If Texas can get off to a strong start this season, that would entail giving the Tide a run for its money in Tuscaloosa on Sep. 9. Texas would also handily defeat Rice and the Wyoming Cowboys in the other two games of the non-conference slate this fall.
Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, it’s worth looking at the rotations and personnel for Sark and the Longhorns staff heading into the regular season.
Part of install and game prep for Sark and the Longhorns will be configuring the final two-deep depth chart heading into the regular season. Here’s a look at what the final projected two-deep could look like heading into Week 1 against Rice on Sep. 2.
