In NCAA Football Alamo Bowl, we will see Utah at Texas.
Texas started the season really well and they were considered as a playoff contender for a long time but at the end of the season, the Longhorns stand with 5 losses. They could not beat any ranked side except for the Kansas State Wildcats and Sam Ehlinger took a big drop in the Draft rankings. He is completing 65% of his throws for 3462 yards, 29 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions. RB Keaontay Ingram is adding 745 rushing yards with 6 touchdowns.
Utah, on the other side, has just 2 losses and the Utes were about to go into the postseason if they beat Oregon 2 weeks ago. However, they lost the game 37-15 and all their hopes vanished. Overall, this is a very good defensive team that would’ve probably fared well against LSU in the postseason. The Utes are allowing just 13 points per game and scoring 34 on the offensive end.
The Longhorns will struggle to contain the Utes defensively because Utah averages 235.5 passing yards per game and is expected to have a big game against a Texas’ secondary that is giving up 306.4 passing yards per game. Texas also cannot stop the run and Utah will be able to control the clock once they get an early lead.
