Texas traveled to Sugar Land to take on the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns in a midweek match-up at Constellation Field.

They forgot their bats and arms at home. A six-run second boosted by a Louisiana grand slam and silence from the Longhorn bats all evening allowed for UL to cruise to an easy win, 8-1

Texas looked to take the series from the University of New Orleans on a dreary day with the wind blowing in. Although the weather was bleak, the Horns got a bright performance on the mound from junior Morgan Cooper. Cooper’s fast start and Texas’ first inning rally were enough for Texas to defeat the Privateers, 3-2, and take the series.

First, Herman went into Oklahoma to secure Sooner legacy Casey Thompson’s committment to the burnt orange and white.

Then, Herman and offense coordinator Tim Beck tried to go after Oklahoma’s other QB prize, 2018 Newbury Park (CA)’s Cameron Rising. They succeeded, as Rising flipped from Oklahoma to Texas this evening.

Spring game notes, quotes, and observations – Orange 52 White 51

In Tom Herman’s first game coaching in front of a crowd and with a scoreboard at Royal-Memorial Stadium, the Orange team defeated the White team, 52-51.

The scoring was peculiar, with penalties taking points off the boards, big plays adding three points for the White or offense’s total, and turnovers or missed field goals adding to the Orange or defense’s total.
