Tom Herman: Texas Longhorns must perform against Texas Tech to honor senior class

In Monday's press conference, head coach Tom Herman spoke highly of the Texas senior class. Herman called for the team to be motivated and finish the season finale strong for the seniors. 

"This week, we owe it to our senior class – who has done so much for this program since we got here," Herman said. "Everyone in that locker room should feel a debt of gratitude toward them and want to repay them by making their senior day really memorable."

"They stayed when they got here and they bought in," Herman said in Monday's press conference. "A couple took longer than others but with this group when you say jump they say how high? They don’t ask questions. They’re unbelievable soldiers. We will forever be indebted to them because of their development."
