The University of Louisana-Monroe Warhawks and Texas Longhorns meet up in Week 1 at DKR Memorial Stadium in Austin. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. ET and the game will air on Longhorn Network. Texas has fell victim to lesser opponents before, but that won’t likely be the case this weekend. For them its about getting the reps for their starters, and getting out healthy.
ULM (0-0, 0-0) looked a lot better last year under first-year head coach Terry Bowden. They’re still towards to bottom of the Sun Belt conference, but he has them trending in the right direction and could contend in a few years. Texas (0-0, 0-0) says “we’re back” every year, but it never seems to actually pan out. This is a big year for the Longhorns and second-year head coach Steve Sarkisian. After going 5-7 last year, the floor needs to be at least seven wins anything less is a massive disappointment.
Texas is a 37.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, with the point total set at 64.5.
