After a big win over OU on Saturday from the Cotton Bowl, football isn’t the only thing that’s fun again. Recruiting is sure to see an uptick over the final stretch of 2019’s class. On-field success coupled with the resources and amenities of Austin usually equals recruiting success. Tom Herman could always evaluate and recruit, now he’s got a winning program to sell. The Inside Scoop delivers.

The biggest game of the year is here between 4-1 Texas and 5-0 Oklahoma. The IT staff gives predictions, analyzes what needs to happen for Texas to win, and gives a favorite memory from the rivalry.

What’s the best way to get recruits to watch OU football? Give them tickets to a Texas game. This year is the Sooners’ turn to host and there will be a few common targets in attendance.

More important than who is at the game is the outcome. The virtuous circle of winning begetting elite recruits begetting winning would get a nice boost if Texas could pull out the win. If this team sticks to its profile of playing ‘up’ to its competition we should be in for a dandy 24 hours time.

It’s always fun when Texas-OU week arrives. It’s a lot better when both teams are good. And even cooler when UT has a legit shot at topping the Sooners and ripping the lid off this 2018 season. We look at team/injury news and notes, plus the recruiting trends pointing upwards. Beat OU in the Monday Scoop.

In recent days I’ve mentioned this Texas team seems pretty similar to Kansas State teams of the past. The offense isn’t explosive (though there is big play ability) and the team is physical and mentally resilient for the most part. They want to win wars of attrition and in recent weeks that approach has worked.
