The Longhorns have the Big 12’s most-talented roster and return 17 starters while OSU has lost three senior offensive linemen already and just learned that starting tackle Davin Davis will be out for the season with a torn ACL. The Cowboys were widely seen as the favorite to win the Big 12 in 2013.
David Fox of AthlonSports.com writes of Texas’ chances:
Texas is tough team to project. The talent is there for a 10-win season or a Big 12 title, but this group has underachieved. Having Jordan Hicks back on defense and one of the few experienced quarterbacks will work in Texas’ favor. The Longhorns should benefit from teams in the Big 12 being down a bit — Kansas State, Texas Tech, West Virginia and Iowa State won’t be as good as we’ve seen in recent years. While Oklahoma State and Oklahoma will challenge for the league title, neither appear to be as good as they were two years ago. That’s a window Texas must climb through.
