2008 Texas Longhorns Game by Game Predictions

Well with the start of the season just over a week away, I thought I would step out on a limb and predict each game throughout the season.

Game 1: Vs. Florida Atlantic

This will be a special day in Austin, as his greatness Vince Young returns to have his jersey retired. While it will be a great day for the fans and players alike, the day will turn bitter and ugly for the visiting Owls.

Texas will have a 35-point lead at the half. Coming out, the starters will play one, maybe two more series and walk off with field with a comfortable 56-0 lead.

This is how the game will end, because Mack won't want to embarrass old Howie and leave him some hope of saving his season.

Game 2: At UTEP

This is the country's first chance to see this year's Longhorns team. A prime time game on ESPN 2 will turn into a prime time whipping. Mike Price will wish he had never left Wasu.

The Longhorns will dominate and walk away with another comfortable 42-10 victory from El Paso.

Game 3: Vs. Arkansas

The rivalry is renewed as Arkansas comes back to Austin after the last time these two played, there will be some lingering bad blood.

While I think this will be the first true test for this year's Longhorn squad, I don't see the Razorbacks as deadly this time without McFadden or Jones.

Arkansas puts up a good fight, but learns that you just don't mess with Texas. Longhorns win a battle royale, 28-13.

Game 4: Vs. Rice

Not much to be said on this one, another endless thrashing of a poor defenseless Rice team. Texas walks, 56-3.

Game 5: At Colorado

This one could be a bad game for the Longhorns. Next week's game with Oklahoma is looming, and Colorado is being the strongest opponent. It will be a tough road game, and I think the Horns can escape with a victory, but it will be earned late. Texas wins, 21-14.

Game 6: Vs. Oklahoma (in Dallas)

After last year's fiasco, Texas comes in to prove they are once again the better team. This time, Sam Bradford leaves the game early after getting beaten to bloody heck by the Texas D. Colt McCoy has a banner day, leading the Horns to a great victory over those bastards from Oklahoma. Texas, 35-21.

Game 7: Vs. Missouri

Back home after beating OU, Texas will have another hard game against Missouri. I think this game will be another close one, and Chase Daniel will show all the UT faithful that Texas passed on a real good quarterback. But I think Colt pulls one out and wins this one for us. Texas 21-14.

Game 8: Vs. Oklahoma State

Mike Gundy can scream about being a man and being 40 all he wants. But that doesn't help his lowly Pokes. They walk into Austin and leave battered and bruised. Texas takes a relatively easy one, 42-10.

Game 9: At Texas Tech

Once again another meeting between the overhyped super offense of Texas Tech and the Longhorns. But once again, Texas shows those rejects from Lubbock that you have to play defense to win a game. Texas wins 52-35.

Game 10: Vs. Baylor

Art Briles learns that playing Texas just isn't fun. Texas wins another easy one over the lackluster Bears 48-3.

Game 11: At Kansas

The return to Lawrence, Kansas. Vince Young pulled off what looked like a huge upset here back in 2005. Well, Colt doesn't have to have any magic, as Kansas falls back to status quo. Texas wins easily, 35-7.

Game 12: Vs. Texas A&M

It's Sherman's first trip to Austin as the head coach for the hated Aggies, He will leave wishing it would be his last. Texas shows the world that the Aggies got lucky last year and win a very brutal game (for A&M) 42-14.

Texas will become the big 12 south champions and Go on to win the Big 12 outright. While I would love to sit here and say they will be in the national championship game, I can't see the lot of teams ahead of Texas fading and opening that door.

So for this, I will say Texas will happily take a Fiesta Bowl bid.
