The Longhorns were blown out by BYU yet again last week, and another blowout loss might put Charlie Strong on the hot seat before he’s even had a chance to sit down.

Texas hosts No. 12 UCLA at AT&T Stadium in Arlington at 7:00 p.m. Saturday, their first non-conference matchup against a top-25 team since  getting squashed by Ole Miss a year ago.

Record: 2-0

Last: Beat Memphis, 42-35

Offense: Spread

Defense: 3-4

And Jack isn’t just out there filling space, the Washington native was named offensive AND defensive freshman of the year in the Pac-12 last season. He’s explosive on both sides of the ball, so expect to hear his name a lot on Saturday.
