Texas finished the season 10-1. Their only loss was in the SMU game two months earlier, 14-13. 1947 Texas-SMU: The game featured two of the greatest players in the history of Texas football-Bobby Layne and Doak Walker. It's hard to believe that these two greats were co-captains, in the same backfield, at the same high school, and at the same time. They played for Highland Park High School (just north of Dallas) in 1943. Bobby Layne was a senior and Doak Walker was a sophomore. The 1947 Texas-SMU game was the only time that these two greats played against each other in college. As in high school, Bobby Layne was a senior and Doak Walker a sophomore. Texas came into the game (6-0) ranked # 3 in the nation with SMU (5-0) ranked # 8.
