Longhorns ready to take on Ole Miss

Posted: Updated:

The University of Texas football team didn't have to do much to beat Wyoming by 20, then shutout New Mexico 45-0.

"We've been better than the two teams that we've played," said UT head coach Mack Brown.

Texas is expecting more of a challenge this week when they hit the road to face Ole Miss.

"This game will be a more evenly matched game. So this will be a great test for us. I feel like the schedule is set up perfectly as we get ready to go into Stillwater in two weeks," said Brown.

UT junior defensive back Adrian Phillips added, "Ole Miss they're a good team. So this week we have to make sure that we go in there and we hit them in the mouth."

Texas and Ole Miss come into this matchup undefeated at 2-0. But with this being the first time the Longhorns won't play at home this season, they'll now have to get focused and ready to handle more distractions both on and off the field.

"Anytime you have an away game always be ready for something to go wrong. Whether that be the buses being late, you're not getting to your hotel in time. Your room being dirty, fire alarm going off. Something's gonna happen throughout the week," said UT junior offensive lineman Mason Walters.

Texas Co-Offensive Coordinator Bryan Harsin added, "Obviously the environment we're going to go into, it's going to be a hostile environment. It's going to be loud. When they make plays there's going to be adversity. When that adversity happens it's going to get louder and louder."

Playing in a hostile environment is something UT junior defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat enjoys.

"It's not your home crowd cheering for you. But it's also exciting. It gets you pumped up when you have the other team booing you and all that. It's a lot of fun. It presents a big challenge and it's fun to do."

UT senior safety Kenny Vaccaro added, "It's our first road game. It's going to be a test. We're going into SEC country. So it's going to be a hostile environment. So we're ready for it."
