Texas QB Tyrone Swoopes getting first team reps in Alamo Bowl practice

As the Texas Longhorns are preparing for their upcoming Alamo Bowl date with the Oregon Ducks, it also can’t be ignored that they’re also preparing for an unknown future as well with the departure of Mack Brown and the eventual implementation of a new head man in Austin.

One of the key features of the future for the Longhorns is current backup quarterback Tyrone Swoopes. He was also the subject of a bit of controversy this season when Brown burned his redshirt down the stretch, a decision that some were against. Nonetheless, whether anyone liked it or not, Swoopes did see some playing time this season, albeit in a limited capacity.

There’s no doubt that Swoopes is the imminent future under center for Texas, and that seems to be something that the team is exploiting as they prepare for their postseason contest.

According to the Austin American-Statesman, Swoopes has gotten some significant repetition time with the first team Longhorn offense in practice this week, which may or may not be a sign that we’ll see a different Texas team in San Antonio later this month against the Ducks.

It may also be a glimpse into the future.
