A little over 12 hours after UT’s 17-7 win over Iowa State last night, the Texas coaches hit the road hard this morning. New offers extended, and the staff is just getting started. The Who They’ll See and Where They’ll Be tonight in HS football. Plus, a pretty large hoops decision going down this evening. Some much-needed Roundup.
Where to see the top UT targets/commits in HS football during Week 5? Here you go.
LOS ANGELES — It was almost déjà vu.
Texas came into California as an underdog to the mighty USC Trojans, and despite a ton of mistakes and some home cooking, almost pulled off the improbable behind a stellar defensive performance and true freshman QB who found his swagger in the 2nd half.
Still, the No. 4 Trojans forced overtime with no time remaining and triumphed in double overtime over the Horns, 27-24, on a Chase McGrath 43-yard FG at the LA Memorial Coliseum on Saturday night.
Texas heads back to LA for a battle with the No. 4 USC Trojans. Here’s our Gameday Primer.

Texas looks to rebound after its season-opening loss to Maryland when the Spartans from San Jose invade Austin. It’s gameday, y’all.
AUSTIN — Tom Herman had one goal entering his first game as coach of the Longhorns. Beat Maryland and start 1-0.

We’re one Saturday from football. 13 days.
As the Longhorns are getting closer to Maryland game prep, there are positions and rotations yet to be determined, including naming that elusive starting QB for the battle with Maryland on September 2nd.
Some quick hitters from yesterday’s final scrimmage, at least from the 1v1 perspective.
This week’s Notebook focuses on the defensive interior with UT targeting the men in the trenches. We start in Missouri, swing around to Oklahoma, then back home to Dallas and Houston in the Notebook.
AUSTIN — Not a great start when RB Chris Warren missed Saturday’s scrimmage due to a concussion sustained on Thursday. No timetable for his return. More from Herman’s post-scrimmage presser.
