Result:
LOSS

Texas lost only to Oklahoma and beat Alabama while going 12-1 to get into the College Football Playoff. The Longhorns are No. 4 in the country in rush defense allowing only 81.1 yards per game and that will be important in containing Washington running back Dillon Johnson, who has 1,113 rushing yards and 14 TDs this season. Michael Penix Jr. has thrown for 4,218 yards and 33 TDs with nine interceptions. Texas will counter with a strong defensive line featuring T'Vondre Sweat and Byron Murphy II that will pressure Penix as he attempts to find his wide receivers and downfield matchups have been a major factor in Washington's success. Texas QB Quinn Ewers has 3.161 passing yards and 21 TDs with only six picks in 2023 and he completed 35 of 46 for 452 yards and four TDs in the Big 12 championship game against Oklahoma State. The Huskies have won nine straight games by 10 points or fewer, but the Longhorns also have won some clutch close games while blowing out teams such as Kansas, BYU Texas Tech. Lay the points with Texas as a Max Play.
