Normally, I don’t lay this kind of chalk in Week 1 because you haven’t seen players in action.
But here is my exception to the rule: UTEP has only won three games in the past three seasons from 2017-2019.
Simply put, the Miners are immensely outclassed in his game from both a physical and mental standpoint. Texas can basically name the final score.
Texas will get into the mid-high 50’s. Sam Ehlinger is back again leading this Longhorns offense. This game has all the makings of a rout: lay this points with confidence on this in-state rivalry.
