College football is on our doorstep.
With the days dwindling until the Texas Longhorns report for fall camp on Aug. 4, the flavors in the air are becoming more real as the 'Horns gear up for a critical 2013 season.
After fielding one of the youngest teams in the FBS a season ago, Texas returns 19 starters to become one of the most experienced programs a year later.

Here is everything you need to know about the Longhorns as they approach fall camp.
