Why Texas May Cover

Both teams struggled in 2021, but the Longhorns are the far superior team in this matchup. All eyes will be on the team’s new starting quarterback, Ohio State transfer Quinn Ewers. The Texas native is a former five-star recruit and the product of one of the top high school football programs in the country at Southlake Carroll. His polarizing personality and his status as a high school football legend have resulted in heightened expectations for the Longhorns in 2022.

Not to be outshone by Ewers, Heisman Trophy candidate Bijan Robinson. The junior running back is coming off a very productive sophomore season in which he rushed for 1,127 yards and 11 touchdowns, and caught 26 passes for 295 yards and 4 touchdowns. With an improved offensive line in front of him, Robinson projects to have another stellar season in 2022.

Why UL-Monroe can cover

The Warhawks have an experienced coach in Terry Bowden, who is entering his second year on the job. The 1993 National Coach of the Year has been successful at the highest levels of college football and was able to rebuild his roster last offseason to better fit his schemes.

ULM enters with a pair of dynamic playmakers in senior wide receiver Boogie Knight and junior running back Malik Jackson. Knight, a former transfer from Akron, caught 45 passes for 588 yards and 3 touchdowns a year ago, while Jackson rushed for 451 yards and 3 touchdowns on 80 carries.
