2018 Texas Longhorns Betting Odds

NCAA Football Betting: There was some improvement for the Texas Longhorns in their first season under Tom Herman. They won seven games in 2017, more than they won in any of the three Charlie Strong years, and returned to a bowl game for the first time in three years. However, the ascent wasn’t as quick as football-crazed fans in Austin wanted. Not to worry, though. The Horns just might be back in the thick of the Big 12 race if sophomore Sam Ehlinger grasps the intricacies of Herman’s spread offense and the team develops a run game.

It was a good start for Herman in his maiden season with the Longhorns, but the pressure is on him to turn it up a notch in 2018. With a year of seasoning for Ehlinger the Horns should be more productive on offense. And that is Herman’s specialty, so they better be. Ehlinger has the edge over Shane Buechele to start in 2018 after the two split time at quarterback last season.

Ehlinger made freshman mistakes that cost Texas games against USC, Oklahoma and Texas Tech, but he showed enough to possibly be the great signal-caller the program has lacked since Colt McCoy took the Horns to the BCS Championship game in 2009. Herman also made it a point to strengthen an offensive line that lacked grit and toughness last year. The inability to handle the trenches cost the Horns dearly in the run game. They averaged just 140 yards per game to finish No. 96 in the FBS. Line coach Herb Hand was lured away from Auburn to work with the bigs.

There are backs on the roster that can run the football and with improved line play the numbers should improve. Keaontay Ingram was the No. 1 prospect in the state last year and is expected to make an immediate impact. Texas had problems defending the pass, but otherwise the group was solid, limiting opponents to just 21.2 points per game. They also helped produce points by leading the nation with seven defensive touchdowns. The secondary gets help from a recruiting haul that has the No. 1 and No. 3 ranked safeties to go along with a pair of corners who rated among the top-100 in the country. Coordinator Todd Orlando might have more talent in 2018 than he had last season.

It’s been a lean couple of years for one of college football’s bluebloods, but it looks as though things might be returning to Austin normal as Tom Herman enters his second season in 2018. Texas has amassed the second-most wins among FBS programs and played in 58 bowl games with 28 victories. The Horns compiled 10 or more wins in a season 23 times and went undefeated nine times thanks to some legendary coaches and players.

Dana Bible was the first to lead the Longhorns to a bowl game and a national ranking. He inherited a team that had gone 2-6-1 in 1936, and slowly started to build the Texas brand into what it is today. In his last six seasons in Austin, he finished in the AP top-15 five times and went 2-0-1 in three Cotton Bowls. The most important coach is Darrell Royal, who dominated the Southwest Conference over his two-decade tenure. He led Texas to two national championships and 16 bowl appearances between 1957 and 1976. He had one of college football’s most legendary players, Earl Campbell, during his reign.

Credit Mack Brown for initially turning the Horns around. He inherited a 4-7 team in 1998 and won nine games in each of his first three seasons. In 2001, UT started a nine-year run of double-digit win seasons, getting a program-record 13 victories twice in that span. The wheels fell off after the Longhorns BCS Championship loss to Alabama in 2009 and the program is still trying to recover.
