In the lead up to tomorrow’s first UTEP game at UT since they were still called the College of Mines, much coverage has been given to the fact that UT is expected to beat UTEP by 36 points.
Still, the team doesn’t seem to be riding high before the game, even though they did win over the Miners last season. UT coach Mack Brown says:
Texas El-Paso gave Texas fits on the road to start the game last season. A whipped-up home crowd inspired the Miners to a 6-0 lead before Texas answered with four touchdowns by halftime.
“I thought they played better than us,” Brown said. “They played more physical than us.”
More physical, Miner (and Longhorn) fans. Let’s hope the Miners’ athletic prowess will triumph over those pre-game estimates. (36 points!?)
