Longhorn Round-Up presented by My Chihuahua Bites Salsa with Hookem.com is back again in this bi-weekly podcast.
The guys dissect Texas' 41-36 win over Oklahoma State in this episode of the Longhorn Round-Up.
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.
This episode recaps Texas' 41-36 victory over Oklahoma State game more comprehensibly than anywhere else. The guys go into depth about the development of David Ash as a quarterback, the consistent improvement of the Longhorns offense, and the Texas defense not living up to the preseason expectations to this point of the season.
Like every show there are ten quick-hitting Longhorn questions in “The Blitz”. Plus, in this episode's “Overtime”, Matt shares some impressive information about Texas' ability to play well in crunch time, as well as some dominating numbers from the second half against Oklahoma State.
