Our weekly installment of Two Texas Truths and a Lie.

In Two Texas Truths and a Lie, three stories are given to two contestants to compete to see who can figure out the fake one.

This week, it’s a public radio face-off. In one corner, we have Hady Mawajdeh with KERA in Dallas. And in the other, we have Andrew Weber with KUT in Austin.

Here are this week’s stories:

1. The University of Texas at Austin will be letting football fans pour it up, pour it up for free. Anyone who heads to the school’s stadium for a game will get free water. There will be seven hydration stations in total. Clear eyes, quenched thirst, can’t lose.

2. The Edna High School Football team is looking for a new name before the school year starts. Right now – they’re the Cowboys. But the new head coach is an avid Philadelphia Eagles fan and won’t allow any allusion to the Dallas Cowboys. Maybe they’d consider becoming the Edna Eagles?

3. A Texas Tech lineman maintains his 309-pound frame with a 5,000-calories-a-day diet. Baylen Brown usually starts out his day with a chicken biscuit from Whataburger. For lunch, he inhales mashed or fried potatoes. And he eats pizza as a snack – some guys have all the luck.

Which one is the lie? Listen in the player above to find out!
