The No. 9 Texas Longhorns jumped out to a 24-0 lead at halftime against Louisiana Tech and also won the second half despite resting starters. QB Sam Ehlinger had four touchdowns but coach Tom Herman was still not pleased. “We were rusty,” Herman told reporters. “Sam missing throws; dropped the ball; we had six penalties. You know, that happens in first games. But I thought we started really, really fast, and that’s what helped us overcome some of those miscues.”
The No. 6 LSU Tigers entered halftime of their season opener against Georgia Southern with an even bigger lead of 39 points! They held their opponent to just 98 yards of total offense, but will no doubt face a tougher challenge here.
My strongest angle for this pick is Texas coach Tom Herman who is 8-2 ATS as an underdog with the Longhorns (13-2-1 going back to his time with Houston). Texas’ last time out as an underdog it defeated Georgia outright as an 11-point dog in the Sugar Bowl.
Additionally, we can note that the Tigers are 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 games in September.
