Kickoff: 7:30 pm ET

Location: Royal Texas Memorial Stadium (outdoors) Austin, Texas

Television Broadcast: ESPN

PREVIEW: After opening as a five point favorite, money has come in on Texas, leaving the Irish favored to win by three. This is a repeat of last year’s game where the Irish trounced the Longhorns 38-3 in the first game of the year. Both teams are having QB issues and Kelly said veterans DeShone Kizer and Malik Zaire will share the quarterback duties duties for the Irish. Texas senior quarterback Tyrone Swoopes hasn’t shown the ability to control the QB position for a good part of two seasons, so it will be more likely Freshman Shane Buechele who will see more action. The Irish were hit hard and now have the fewest number of returning starters in the country after losing their top rusher, three leading receivers, four top tacklers, a sack leader and several big men on the offensive line. Texas gave up over 1100 yards and 10 TD’s their final 4 games last year on the ground and the Irish can run. This is the best O line in the last few seasons, and it should be able to wear down the Irish as the game goes on so Texas will want to eat up the clock. Their secondary may be one of the best in the Big 12 an that puts all the pressure on the Texas run defense. Time of possession will be very important the way of both of these teams attack, and Texas should be more ready for the power game. This should be a much closer game than it was last year.

WHO IS THE ICEMAN? He’s no soothsayer and he doesn’t have a crystal ball, but Jesse Schule can indeed predict the future. As a professional handicapper, it’s actually part of his job description. His clients have accused him of secretly possessing Marty McFly’s Sports Almanac, but he tells us the secret to his success is thanks in part to his fascination with history. The idea that you can predict the future by studying the past is nothing new. Historians have been doing it for years.

Handicapping Methodology: Jesse is not a believer in systems, programs or number crunching formulas to handicap games. He is firm in his belief that you aren't playing against the sportsbook, you are playing against the average Joe (other bettors). Jesse is notorious for attacking inflated point spreads, soft lines and totals that are a little out of whack. He also relies on a nearly photographic memory with an uncanny ability to tell you a player's history and stats dating back for decades. Anyone can look up how many touchdowns a guy has scored, Jesse can also tell you about the ones that he almost scored.

Money Management: His plays are rated based on a 1-10 star system, and he recommends wagering 0.5 percent of your bankroll per star rating. So a top rated 10* play would represent a bet equal to five percent of a player's bankroll.

Signature Plays:

AFTERNOON EXECUTIONER: This title is reserved for games with a start time between 12:00 – 4:30 ET. These are popular with action junkies who are dying for the games to get underway.

The TERMINATOR: Jesse's signature totals play, the Terminator has established a reputation as one of the most consistent winners in Schule's repertoire.

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE: These plays represent a game where the stats show a significant trend which isn't reflected in the price.

GRIM REAPER BLOWOUT: His signature play reserved for medium to large favorites. High percentage plays for those who don't mind laying chalk.

HOT DIGGITY DOG: This is the Iceman's signature underdog play. About as rare as strawberries in December, you'll want to grab these whenever they are available
