“Who stole my Snickers?”

That’s the Tuscola Kid’s first-huddle ice-breaker, according to the Austin American-Statesman’s Suzanne Halliburton. She uses it to illustrate how he’s become the Longhorns’ team leader despite being a redshirt freshman. He’ll need it to beat the Nebraska Bugeaters today. (Bugeaters was the Cornhuskers first team name, back in the 1800s.) Could be a close game, with the bookies spotting Texas just five points and at least one Austin pundit describing how they might become a two-loss team today. But they won’t. Hook Em!

UPDATE  Awfully tight game. Just 22 to 20. But we’ll take it. On to a more beatable Texas Tech.
