"Hey, Kansas is coming tonight. What time we hitting The Forty?" "Oh, man, we had a great time watching Texas at The Forty." Yeah, let's keep working on that name.
For now, the city of Austin is referring to Texas' new basketball arena as "The Forty." It's my understanding naming rights will be sold. https://t.co/FcBhFr2oew

Texas has 19 commitments for 2020 so far. Herman with a key note: “It’s not going to be a full class of 25 or more, because we have not had near the attrition in years past, which is a good thing.”

Still want to bet on sports?
Dicker gives some people a little more breathing room as Texas now up by 35, er, I mean 41-6.

Fun stat: Colt McCoy holds the Texas school record for pass comp %. He was 29-for-32 (.906) vs. Mizzou in 2008. Ehlinger is 21-for-24 so far (.875) tonight.
QB's arm ruled to be going forward. Incomplete pass. Still, great effort by Ta'Quon Graham to disrupt the play.
Whoa! Jalen Green appears to have a room-service TD. Officials let the play go as the Rice QB fumbles. Green scoops it up, goes the distance. Play ruled a TD. It's being reviewed.
Texas announces that C Zach Shackelford has a foot injury and will not return tonight.
Halftime in Houston: Texas 31, Rice 0. Ehlinger is 19-22, 226 yds, 3 TDs. Jake Smith has 2 of those. Owls have 2 first downs.

Texas punts on fourth-and-12, snapping an impressive string of nine scores (8 TDs/1 FG) on nine straight drives going back to the LSU game.

Ingram's number called on the first five plays.
First play is a 10-yard catch by Keaontay Ingram out of the backfield. Second play, a give to Ingram. Getting his confidence going early.
Texas wins the toss. Horns typically defer. Not today. Ehlinger and Co. should be up first vs. the Rice defense. Kickoff coming up.
Eyeballing the crowd here. Maybe 40,000. Of those who are here, most are wearing burnt orange.
