This coming weekend in college football will have a lot of Tennessee and Texas in it. Because he is an expert on both, David Ubben from The Athletic joins AP’s Ralph D. Russo for a both an examination and a preview.
We have already reached the point in the season where we ask what’s wrong with the Longhorns. Adding to this week’s Red River Shootout drama is we’re asking the same questions of Oklahoma, too, as the Sooners limp in with a two-game losing streak.
Texas A&M also has a measuring stick game this week in the SEC against Florida.
David covered college football in Texas and the Big 12 for years before moving to Knoxville to cover Tennessee football. The Vols have a huge opportunity this weekend too as they go to Georgia to face the mighty Bulldogs. For the first time in a while, Tennessee might appears to be on the right track to SEC East contention.
