Experience means so much in college football, and the Texas Longhorns will have plenty of it in 2013.
In fact, the Longhorns, who return 19 starters from last season, are one of the most experienced teams in the FBS going into this season. But with a new season comes the emergence of new players.
The list of new starters is short, but each position has big implications for the season ahead.
Replacing defensive end Alex Okafor and Safety Kenny Vaccaro will be daunting tasks to undertake, but the Longhorns do have the quality to pull it off. How quickly it happens, we will have to wait and see.
