Video: Matthew McConaughey Gave Texas A Great Speech Before The Longhorns Crushed Kansas

Last week, Texas revealed that Academy Award winning actor Matthew McConaughey, also a huge UT fan, had stopped by to give the Longhorns a bit of a pep talk before their game against Kansas on Saturday. Wednesday night, the Longhorn Network posted the full video of McConaughey's speech, which clearly worked, considering Texas blanked the Jayhawks 23-0. 

McConaughey tells the team that he's not going to preach, but ends doing exactly that about midway through. There's also a pretty good story involving Leonardo DiCaprio. Check it out:

Props to McConaughey for taking time out of his busy schedule to try and help his alma mater.
