College football is roughly two weeks underway (if you don’t count Week 0.)
That means it’s … projection season.
Per 247Sportsat their current pace, the Texas Longhorns are projected for a Cheez-It Bowl appearance, where they would hypothetically face off against the North Carolina State Wolfpack.
From 247Sports: “The Longhorns gained the respect of everyone nationally following Saturday’s hard-fought loss to Alabama and played better than the Crimson Tide much of the afternoon. The incoming injury news on quarterback Quinn Ewers is vital to this program’s long-term success this fall and if it has a shot to stay in the Big 12 race potentially without its leader on offense. Texas played well enough to upset the top-ranked reigning SEC champs, but it didn’t happen.”
