GRR: Red River
Goff Rugby Report came out with a list of the top five surprise teams in DIA this fall, and if we’d made the video a few weeks later, it might have been six teams, with the University of Texas in that list.
The evidence that the University of Texas is getting better was shown in sharp relief Saturday as the Longhorns beat LSU 48-19 in Baton Rouge.
Having undergone several coaching changes over the last few years, the Longhorns team has found a little bit of stability, and focused on improving.
Well we were 15-1 in our picks last week (including two "pick 'em" games that were very close); only our pick of Colorado State vs Colorado was wrong.
The scoresheet says that Texas A&M won comfortable 36-12 over Texas in both teams' Red River Conference opener, but that really wasn't the story of the game.
The hot weather has finally abated in Texas and surrounding states and with the more fall-like weather the college rugby season is underway.
Three games are on the slate in the Red River Conference, with Baylor at LSU, Texas Tech at Oklahoma, and Texas A&M at Texas.
