Staff predictions: Wyoming at Texas 

August, 30, 2012
Texas 43, Wyoming 13
This is statement time on a number of fronts for the Texas Longhorns. Will the defense live up to the hype and play up to its potential? Will David Ash be the quarterback that everyone expects he can be leading this team? Wyoming comes into this game with a team that can contend for its conference's crown but is running into Texas at the wrong time.

Texas is good and on its way to great up front on both sides of the ball. Texas will control the line of scrimmage throughout the game. Don't expect a huge passing game from David Ash, but he will test the Cowboys deep on a few occasions. Expect the rushing game to reach 250 yards with 150 in the first half. The Texas defense will play really well but will give up a couple of big plays. Wyoming will move the ball but will struggle in the red zone.
