AUSTIN, Texas – Texas coach Tom Herman preaches, to the nth degree, that his team remains focused on going 1-0 each week, winning each practice, each drill, each rep every day.

And while that philosophy and focus have been mostly successful and driven the Longhorns to a 10-victory campaign in 2018, and back into the AP Top 10 this preseason, the one thing it hasn’t done is produce a season-opening win.
