Corey’s Free Pick
Texas looked strong in their season debut, and this contest will likely look a lot similar. Delaware State will feel overwhelmed from the jump, this contest should come down to a matter of much. The Under will be in play due to the Longhorns smothering defense, but let’s roll with a blowout victory for the host in this non-conference matchup.
