In case you missed it, football season is officially in swing. But how could you when the University of Texas pulled off an epic win in double overtime on the Longhorns' home turf?

Even if you're not a fan of America's signature sport, you likely heard about the upset over the University of Notre Dame after two Texas pop culture icons made headlines for their role in the game. (And if you didn't, please read on.) 

The first: Actor and film professor Matthew McConaughey, who pumped up the team with a pre-game speech. 

Among his advice, "Don't come out of Sunday night going, 'Ooh man, if I woulda, wish I woulda coulda...'"

The second: Lone Star restaurant chain Whataburger, which threw major shade at the Fighting Irish after their loss.

This isn't the first time Whataburger has gone viral for its commentary. The chain has weighed in on hot topics from Meek Mill's feud with Drake and Beyonce's Lemonade to Netflix series Stranger Things, the Arthur meme craze and Pokemon Go.

Could McConaughey and Whataburger be the burnt orange dream team the Longhorns need to dominate the season? We'll leave analysis to the sports experts, but consider this our plea for a signature Alright, Alright, Alright burger.
