AUSTIN, Texas -- Winning at home was fun while it lasted. The surprising Texas Longhorns are about to test their mettle on the road.After opening the season with home wins over Notre Dame and UTEP, the No. 11 Longhorns wont play at Royal-Memorial Stadium again for a month with three road games and bye week coming up. The road swing starts Saturday at California (1-1) with games at Oklahoma State and against No. 14 Oklahoma in Dallas after that.That means no sleeping in their own bed the night before kickoff, no short bus trips to the stadium and no home crowd clad in burnt orange cheering Texas Fight!No sweat, says freshman quarterback Shane Buechele, who has been impressive in his first two starts with 524 yards passing and six touchdowns.Same thing, just somewhere different, Buechele said. Im just excited to go out there and play somewhere else and see what its like.Youthful enthusiasm abounds at Texas these days. It did last year, too, until the first road game after a surprising thumping of Oklahoma was a 24-0 loss at Iowa State, a defeat sophomore linebacker Malik Jefferson called one of the lowest points of his life.Texas was an awful road team in 2015. The Longhorns went 1-4 on opponents home field last season and didnt win until beating Baylor in the final game. They were outscored in the four losses 150-30.Guys werent ready last year, Jefferson said. A lot of guys were down last year because they couldnt move past the past. Were more focused.Its not just the road environments that will be a challenge. Texas faces three top quarterbacks in its next three games, starting with Californias Davis Webb.Webb has already passed for nine touchdowns and more than 900 yards in two games and will be eyeing a Texas secondary that was solid last week against UTEPs backup quarterbacks, but gave up five touchdown passes to Notre Dame.The Texas depth chart lists 13 freshmen or sophomores on the two-deep roster.Its going to be a big challenge for our secondary, Texas coach Charlie Strong said. Youre taking a young team into a hostile environment. Were going to have to play incredible defense. We can take the crowd out of it with good defense.Add in the time zone wrinkle -- California is two hours behind Texas and the game wont start until 7:30 p.m. on the West coast -- and the Texas could be playing a game that ends well after midnight back home.Were going to be a little bit out of our element, Strong said. We need to grow up quickly and grow up and play well. http://www.texansrookiestore.com/Texans-Jeremy-Lane-Jersey/ .C. - The Carolina Hurricanes have placed backup goalie Anton Khudobin on injured reserve with an unspecified lower-body injury. http://www.texansrookiestore.com/Texans-Jeff-Allen-Jersey/ . A statement from the worlds top-ranked player says all checks "were satisfactory and showed positive evolution" regarding the injury, which contributed to his loss to Stanislas Wawrinka in the final in Melbourne. http://www.texansrookiestore.com/Texans-Chris-Clark-Jersey/ . Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006. http://www.texansrookiestore.com/Texans-Andre-Johnson-Jersey/ .C.
