How to watch Texas vs West Virginia on Saturday
MORGANTOWN, W. Va. (KXAN) – It has been a week of public support and statements of support for Texan football and head coach Steve Sarkisian after a historic loss to Kansas.
Texas Longhorns Athletics manager Chris Del Conte gave his first-year football head coach a vote of confidence on Tuesday, calling on Texas fans to support the program during this low point.
Texan football must stand up and score victories if it is to maintain any hope of a bowl game in 2021.
The Longhorns will play the final road game of the season on Saturday at 11 a.m. against West Virginia in Morgantown. Both teams have four wins this season, which means a team won’t stand a chance of winning a bowl after Saturday’s game.
The Longhorns have only missed a bowl game four times since 1998. Texas are on a five-game losing streak for the first time since 1956.
Sarkisian was asked about his boss’s approval on Thursday and said he appreciated the support.
“Not everyone is fortunate enough to have people literally backing you up and supporting you throughout the process, because this is clearly a process for what we’re trying to do,” Sarkisian said. . “For the CDC to announce it, I think they really feel it. I feel it on their part, so that’s positive.
Support is one thing, progress is another.
The Longhorns are desperate to show some sort of progress in the final weeks of the season. The fate of Sarkisian’s Texas program could be at stake.
