No. 3 Texas vs. No. 24 Kansas: QB Jalon Daniels leads explosive Jayhawks offense

Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports The Longhorns look to remain undefeated at home against a basketball school that could prove to be their greatest challenge yet. A game that in the past has been viewed as a layup against a school known for its basketball program, may be the toughest challenge thus far this season for Steve Sarkisian and the No. 3 Texas Longhorns on Sept. 30th at 2:30 on ESPN in Austin at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium.

No. 3 Texas 38, Baylor 6: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

So when you are a Texas Longhorns team that is showered in adulation, preseason awards, and become the consensus pick to win the Big 12 in its final year of relevance — how do you keep yourself motivated?

You channel the pompous commissioner’s remarks, you “Embrace the hate,” and you constantly remind yourself that every opponent spent their entire offseason dreaming of getting the...

Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports Notes and nuggets from Steve Sarkisian’s Monday press conference. When the Kansas Jayhawks return to Austin this weekend for the first time since their upset win in double overtime, they’ll see a much different Texas Longhorns team on the field. They have themselves to thank for that. “In a weird way, I’m kind of glad it happened because it exposed some warts in our program that needed to get removed,” Steve Sarkisian said on Monday. “If we hadn’t removed those warts, we might not be where we are today in our program.

Photo by Tim Warner/ The Longhorns come back home to take on the high-powered Jayhawks offense. The No. 3 Texas Longhorns continue to thrive in the third year of the Steve Sarkisian era and have an opportunity to avenge one of the big embarrassments from his first year, a home loss to an ascendant Kansas Jayhawks team in 2021. Two seasons ago, the game was a coming-out party for the Jayhawks under new head coach Lance Leipold and quarterback Jalon Daniels, who have become some of the top names at their respective jobs in the Big 12.
