On Saturday Texas was who we wrote about, and who you read about in August. We saw why the Texas defense dominated the Texas offense all August.

Connor Williams injury update

After evaluation of Connor Williams’ MRI today, Longhorn team doctors have determined that the junior All-American left tackle sustained a sprain of the medial and posterior collateral ligaments in his left knee. Williams also sustained a meniscus tear, which he is expected to undergo arthroscopic surgery on in the next week to 10 days. There is no timetable on his return at this point and a further update will be provided following surgery.

Texas looks to rebound from the disappointment versus Maryland while at the same time preparing for USC. San Jose State should be just what the doctor ordered, but don’t discount that ‘preparing for USC’ part. Texas has a lot of fixable issues to work on and Saturday’s game will serve an important role to that end.
