Jadeveon Clowney was described as “contained” by many pundits and that was with two tackles for loss and a sack.

LR: 2

TW: Vanderbilt 6:00

6. Ole Miss (2-0, 1-0)

Between Charles Sawyer’s DUI and the injury/defensive issues for Texas, the rematch from 2012 is getting stranger and stranger.

LW: Defeated Southeast Missouri State 31-13

LR: 7

TW: at Texas 7:00
