The eyes of the nation are upon you, Texas.
And the eyes of the Heisman Trophy are on you, Colt McCoy.
Things are different now for the Longhorns as they stride into the second half of the 2008 season. They wake up this morning fully alive, knowing they are kings of the world, having knocked off the top-ranked Oklahoma Sooners … but that they have taken merely the first step in a daunting midseason college football gauntlet.
It looks like they will be facing four Top 10 teams in a row. Oh yeah, and another at the end of the regular season in the Big 12 title game. So, to actually win the national championship, Texas very well might have to defeat six Top 10 teams in a span of nine games.
