Longhorn Round-Up presented by My Chihuahua Bites Salsa with Hookem.com is back again in this bi-weekly podcast.
In this week's episode of the Longhorn Round-Up the guys preview Texas' Thanksgiving night game.
The team of Hookem.com's Jeff Howe, Austin radio veteran Matt Butler and lifetime Longhorn, six-year NFL veteran and current sideline reporter for Texas Longhorns football Rod Babers take Longhorn fans through more than an hour of nothing but Longhorn football talk.
In this Tuesday episode, the guys preview the Texas Longhorns’ upcoming game with the TCU Horned Frogs, and discuss the philosophies of Gary Patterson and how the Longhorns match up against his team this season. They also share their opinions on the key factors that they believe will decide the outcome of the game on Thanksgiving night.
As always, there are five debatable topics in “The Blitz”, all of which focus around the Longhorns match-up against the Horned Frogs.
