The Longhorns are back in long-awaited action this Saturday against the Wyoming Cowboys and reigning Mountain West freshman of the year Brett Smith. From here on out, all that matters is winning.
There probably are not seven individual things that the Longhorns simply must do to avoid an upset in this game because this Wyoming team is not in the same league as the 'Horns.
However, there are some things you would really like to see happen in order for this team to get the most out of what boils down to a preseason game that counts. Will David Ash take care of the ball? Which freshmen will make an early statement? How good will this defense really look?
The answers to these questions, as well as some things the 'Horns must do, and more heading into the first game of the season.
