Texas Longhorns College Football Betting
On the whole, the Texas Longhorns gave gamblers a wild roller coaster ride in 2022. Second year coach Steve Sarkisian is making systematic progress. And his most important game was the close one that Texas lost. The Longhorns nearly upset the Alabama Crimson Tide in September for what could have been a signature and breakout win. Quarterback Quinn Ewers was a 5-star recruit enticed to come to Texas for a Lamborghini and sacks of NIL cash. But Ewers was a tease with an off-and-on season. Another 5-star recruit, Arch Manning, will arrive on campus next season to compete with Ewers. Manning likely holds the keys to the future of Sarkisian. The previous coach Tom Herman was emotionally erratic, but he won games quicker and at a better rate than Sark. And the Texas donor base is not known for patience.
