What American-Statesman staffers Cedric Golden, Randy Riggs and Mark Rosner took away from Monday’s press conferences with head coach Mack Brown and Longhorns players:
Golden: Technically, the team that wins in Dallas will set up a showdown against Baylor for Big 12 supremacy, but I just don’t see how that team will be Texas. The 2-0 conference record is the last vestige of championship hope remaining for a team that took a month to win two games in a row. Still, the Longhorns have a slugger’s chance to pull an upset. I just wonder if there’s a player on this team capable of landing a meaningful Sunday punch on the biggest Saturday of the season.
