Game preview Washington vs Texas

We hear every year that this is the year that the Texas Longhorns will be back, and finally, it seems true as the Longhorns have made the College Football playoffs. Quinn Ewers has been excellent this season. The Washington Huskies are a fun team to watch, exciting on offense and defense, but maybe the most impressive thing about this Husky team is the resilience they play with. Michael Pennix has been fantastic this season, and the Huskies are a legitimate threat in this game.
