Texas head coach Mack Brown enters his 16th season in Austin with one goal in mind—getting the Longhorns back to the Texas standard.
At Big 12 media days, Brown said Texas is about to make another run at a national title.
The first step to a title will come Saturday when the No. 15 Texas Longhorns host the New Mexico State Aggies at DKR Texas Memorial Stadium.
With 19 returning starters, Texas enters 2013 as one of the most experienced teams in college football. The Longhorns are coming off of a 9-4 record and are preparing to unveil a new uptempo offense run by junior quarterback David Ash.
Following a 1-11 season, the Aggies are ready to progress in 2013 under new head coach Doug Martin and offensive coordinator Gregg Brandon. The Aggies return 14 starters—seven on offense and seven on defense—and will feature new starting quarterback Andrew McDonald.
The Longhorns hold a 4-0 record over the Aggies, and the last meeting in 2003 ended in a 66-7 Texas blowout.
