Coach Sarkisian Thinks Texas is Ready to Beat Bama
Texas Head Coach Steve Sarkisian commented on several of his players this past week.
As the Texas Longhorns prepare to play the Tide this Saturday, here's what to keep an eye on.
Let's talk the offensive line first. Texas sports writer Eric Henry said the offense would be pivotal in the upcoming game.
DJ Campbell, offensive tackle for Texas, "got better and better" throughout the week, Coach Sarkisian reported. Offensive lineman Cole Hutson is also back healthy and expected to play well against Bama tomorrow.
Hutson notably was out for Spring practice due to a shoulder injury. Sarkisian feels confident about his o-line, though. "If the game was anything like practice this week, we will be okay," he said.
Will we see any action from Arch Manning this week? Probably not, but Coach Sark did say he had hoped to have him play some last week against Rice.
Running back CJ Baxter looks good too. Sarkisian said he's "fired up to for him to cut it loose against Alabama."
But it may really be defensive tackle T'Vondre Sweat that will be helping Texas out the most!
Coach Sarkisian said the team's practice this week was "really good." We'll see how well it payed off in Bryant-Denny tomorrow night.
