far away as Brownsville Long road Sports Longhorns looking at tough season AUSTIN AP Texas who havent witnessed a Longhorn losing season in football since may be staring at one this Texas doesnt appear to be as strong as last season when it compiled a 741 the second worst in Fred Akers eight years as head and the 1985 schedule is It includes Stanford and Oklahoma as well as Southwest Conference road games against what Akers considers top 20 teams in Southern Houston and Texas If you like you ought to love and I Akers Akers was criticized last season for allowing Texas to play in
