Do the Longhorns take any confidence into Kansas State?
Every school in the country has something they can bank on when they enter the field. When Texas runs through the white smoke, when Clemson touches Howard's Rock and when Notre Dame touches the "Play Like a Champion Today" sign, they all approach the field with a level of confidence.
Confidence usually comes from a team's ability to know who they are and what they do well. Once they perform, they build faith in the plan and the system. It goes on and on. One thing builds on the previous and leads to the next.
