Saturdays are synonymous with College Football, and while some actors are typically engrossed in rehearsing lines or pursuing future projects, a few are fully immersed in the College Football spirit.
One such ardent enthusiast is Matthew McConaughey, an avid supporter of the Texas Longhorns. He recently shared his thoughts on his team’s heart-wrenching loss to their longstanding rivals. Before the game, McConaughey made a guest appearance on College Football Gameday, and it was no surprise which team he picked to win.
Following his prediction, the Oklahoma Sooners executed a game-winning drive in the final moments of the match, securing a victory over the third-ranked Texas team in yet another unforgettable Red River Showdown.
After the game’s conclusion, McConaughey took to his social media platforms to post a video reaction to the thrilling game.
“Wow, that was a rollercoaster right there, man,” McConaughey said. “That was tough, man. Left in too much time on the clock at the end, didn’t we? Hell of a game man, hats off to OU. Team came out on the front foot. Great emotional football they played, well played, Sooners. See you next year. Till then, mean times and all times. Hook ’em.”
It’s worth commending McConaughey for addressing the audience after a tough loss. He easily could have chosen to remain silent in the face of defeat.
