Although the Longhorns have one of the most productive quarterbacks in Sam Ehlinger, most analysts have them falling short to the Tigers.ESPN released its staff predictions for the LSU-Texas game, and it’s pretty clear that experts are siding with the SEC Powerhouse.David Bearman, Kyle Bonagura, Chris Low, Adam Rittenberg, Alex Scarborough and Tom VanHaaren all have LSU defeating Texas on Saturday night.Despite the majority of the predictions siding with LSU, there were a couple of analysts that are siding with Texas.ESPN’s David M. Hale actually believes the Longhorns’ defense will be the difference-maker, saying “Joe Burrow has looked vastly improved since late last season, but the Texas defense is the best unit he’s faced since Bama.”There has been a solid amount of trash talk leading up to this showdown. K’Lavon Chaisson has already stated that he doesn’t believe the Longhorns have a chance of taking down the Tigers.Either way, Texas and LSU should be in for an entertaining game that might just come down to the wire.

Not only does the program have a phenomenal defense, but it also upgraded its offense with the addition of passing game coordinator Joe Brady.In their season opener, the Tigers put on an offensive clinic. Joe Burrow threw for 278 yards and five touchdowns against Georgia Southern.Texas also had an impressive season opener, but the team is running out of depth in the backfield. The only scholarship running back that is healthy for this weekend is Keaontay Ingram.
