Texas-Kansas State Preview: Longhorns, McCoy Seek Revenge
IconThey say revenge is a dish best served cold.

Well, it won't be cold in Austin on Saturday. It'll be hot—very hot.

And the temperature will only rise as the Kansas State Wildcats take the field before screaming legions of UT faithful.

Last year, the kids from Manhattan stole a game from the Horns when Colt McCoy went down with an injury.

This year, they travel to Austin to face the same QB—but he's stronger and better than he was a season ago.

After three lackluster games to open 2007, Texas looked to be back on track against Rice last weekend. The Horns are hoping to keep the offensive momentum going against K-State, and would like to see their defense return to form.

The biggest challenge on D will be keeping the balanced Kansas State attack from completing the deep ball. The Wildcats are coming off back-to-back victories, but they opened the season with a loss at Auburn.

The keys to victory are simple for Texas: Keep QB Josh Freeman contained and don't let Jordy Nelson get deep.  The Longhorns also need to control the ball, dominate the trenches, and, perhaps most importantly, refrain from looking ahead to Oklahoma.

If they can do all that, it should be an easy victory in Austin this weekend.

The Longhorns will also get a big boost on the sidelines, as Vince Young and some Titans teammates are scheduled to make the trip to DKR.

Last time Vince attended a game, the Longhorns won a thriller in Lincoln.
