    Sark, the offensive genius that he is, will implement a new philosophy this week. Based off the previous two weeks, he has decided that Texas will go up triple digits by the end of the first half. BYE won't know what hit them. Unbeknownst to Sark, Coach K decided that he doesn't like to win games by triple digits and game plans a defense that employs all walk-ons from the stands to make it a fair competition in the second half.

    Despite the effort of Sark and the offense by running consecutive 1 yd gains up the middle every play to burn clock, BYE comes back in the second half with an unbelievable streak of 20 third and longs and runs of 99, 87, 76, 97, 69, 55, 78 for scores and bombs of 87, 90, 59, 88, 83, 91, 56, 93 for scores, Texas loses in the final seconds. BYE's win streak continues against Texas.

    Texas - 100
    BYE - 101

    Quite honestly, I don't believe this defense is CAPABLE of holding anyone scoreless for an entire game. That said, I also don't believe that the offense will do much against the vaunted BYE defensive...they are scary good.

    In order to avoid risking injury, I expect Bijan will be held back. No carries on the field against BYE. But he's cool with it and won't rush to the portal.

    I'm calling this a complete push...BOTH sides fail to score. And after yesterday's shellacking, the Vegas books rejoice since they had this game as a PK, so this one also knocks out a ton of parlays that had a TIES LOSE rule.

    You guys are Debbie downers!! Sark has patched the O line and K has done the same on defense. Horns roll Bye so impressively that they will be ranked ahead of UTSA!!
    "Happy days are here again"
    Horns 17 (bye's D is nothing to sneeze at)
    BYE 0 (Horn D rises to the occasion)

    Pretty sure Sark has learned his lesson and will change his approach this week.
    I expect BYE to go up early and big..which will really surprise them..then Sark will have the guys ready to turn it on and catch them off guard once they relax.
    They'll never know what hit them...and their fans are gonna be so pissed.

    BYE. 5
    Not Texas 6

    The BYE kickoff is at 11am so you you know the Horns will start fast and get an early lead....

    However, BYE is stacked with talent and will wear down the Horns in the 4th quarter.

    So I'm makin the smart pick this week - BYE by 1.

    You DID drink the flavor-aide...this Texas squad is NOT scoring, thus making your margin of one an impossibility. Not even THE BINDER is putting points on the board. I'm telling you...that BYE squad is really, really good. Do you realize they have NEVER lost a game? EVER! Even the vaunted W-sips cower in fear. And you think Texas is scoring on them?


    Ok, maybe the all caps were uncalled for since you DID finally tell us about the #LetsGoBrandon chant, which was something that left us gruntled.

    Sark implements a new strategy. Even though the game starts at 11:00, BYE will be unopposed for the first 20 minutes. So when Texas shows up — technically mid-2nd Quarter, they will only need to play a 40 minute game. This has worked very well for Texas over the past two weeks.

    While at the half the score will be BYE 49, Texas 21, the final score will be Texas 70, BYE 56.

    I'd predict Jordan Whittington gets injured but he's already out. Doch!

    Also from my success last week predicting the game, I believe Bye will win 27-24 after we once again blow a 21 point lead in the 3rd quarter.

    I asked Curly Bill Brocius to predict this one. He smirked, gave a small laugh, and after a second or two he said, “Well, Bye!”

    I can't find the TV listing in the Dallas Morning News - which channel is carrying the game? :)

    I'm hearing reports of a defensive struggle in sloppy weather...zero-zero at last report, almost to the fourth quarter.
