AUSTIN, Texas — Louisiana State University graduate and Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice engaged in some friendly banter with the University of Texas' very own Matthew McConaughey on Twitter.

The match between the Tigers and the Longhorns is one of the most anticipated football games of the 2019 season, so when Guice got the chance to meet McConaughey he made sure to let him know his thoughts on the match-up.

"Just met my favorite actor @McConaughey and told him we gone whoop @TexasFootball a-- next week," Guice wrote on Twitter on Wednesday.
