Game-by-game predictions and plot lines ahead of fall camp

Fall camp is starting soon in Austin, and we have a good idea of ​​the team that will be on the field at the season opener. While the starting spots are still up for grabs, the roster that will emerge from the tunnel is now on campus.

First-year offensive linemen will show whether or not they’re ready for game time. Granted, they’ll look lost at times, as we’ve often seen in returning linemen. We’ll see which five have the best understanding of attack and work best together.

Linebackers could determine which defense Texas deploys most often. Pete Kwiatkowski would welcome the emergence of David Gbenda or Diamonte Tucker-Dorsey as reliable linebacker options.

Here’s a look at how I see the 2022 college football season unfolding for Texas, along with potential storylines before each game.
