UT’s Brendan Schooler and Tech’s Colin Schooler have played three times in college. Brendan Schooler has a 2-1 series lead in the sibling rivalry.
AUSTIN, Texas: A lot of things link the Texas Longhorns and Texas Tech Red Raiders programs, but perhaps nothing more remarkable than a couple of brothers tuning their tacos.
With the Red Raiders arriving at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium on Saturday, the results could be resolved with Colin Schooler and Brenden Schooler. Brenden and Colin Schooler have played three times separately, with Brenden Schooler getting the best finish twice.
Their rivalry between collegiate brothers began at the University of Oregon and the University of Arizona. Brenden Schooler played for the Oregon Ducks before moving to UT, and Colin Schooler played for the Arizona Wildcats before moving to Texas Tech.
While in the Pac-12, the Schooler brothers split the meetings: an Oregon 48-28 in 2017, followed by Arizona leading Oregon, 44-15, in 2018.

The Schoolers made their individual trips to Lone Star State, and Brenden Schooler regained control of the sibling rivalry during the 2020 overtime shootout in Lubbock. Texas overcame a 15-point deficit with just over three minutes left in the fourth quarter to end up forcing overtime and escaping with a 63-56 victory.
This will be the last year of eligibility for the two brothers, who used the COVID-19 waiver for an additional season.
They are unlikely to line up against each other in the game as they both start to defend their respective teams.
Colin Schooler has played as a defender throughout his college career. Brenden Schooler played as a big receiver in Oregon and in his first season in Texas, but moved to the defensive side of the ball in 2021. Brenden Schooler has become UT’s initial safety this year.
Still, Schooler’s home bragging rights are surely at stake. You can see how the brothers face off right here at KVUE on Saturday at 11am
