It’s one factor that brought out over a dozen college coaches on the evening. Texas, Texas A&M, Alabama, Ole Miss, Baylor, Duke, Tulane, and UNLV were among the contingent on hand. All were there to find talent, mingle with fellow CFB coaching brethren, and see Mr. Wright.

With a long time in between the series finale against TCU and tonight’s game against UIW, the Texas Longhorns had to deal with final exams as well as down time they have not experienced since before the season started. Texas showed few signs of rust tonight as they cruised past a 20-32 Cardinals team, 10-3. Sophomore Nick Kennedy’s starting effort earned not only his eighth win, but also Texas’ 12th midweek victory in 14 games.
