Texas Longhorns head coach Charlie Strong invited UT alum Matthew McConaughey to practice before the team took on Kansas last Saturday, and the Oscar award-winning actor gave a quick pep talk to the team that everyone should hear.

The Longhorn Network had cameras rolling as the longtime Texas fan asked the players to find what motivates them to go out to practice each day, and says he asks himself the same question about what drives him to be an actor.
