Longhorn quarterback Shane Buechele got a surprise gift from Charlie Strong before the game.  A change to jersey #7.

Buechele wore #16 in the spring and summer workouts with the Horns, following in the footsteps of past #16's James Street and Robert Brewer.

But Buechele wore #7 in high school and had asked Charlie Strong if he could switch.   And Strong rewarded his new starting quarterback with the single digit.

Past UT quarterbacks who wore #7 include Garrett Gilbert, Connor Brewer, Jevan Snead, John Chiles, Matt Nordgren, Shannon Kelley, Sam Ansley and Mike Cordaro.
