What a weekend. The Horns put a Texas-sized ass-whooping on the Trojans of Southern Cal. We’ll go over team news, injury report, and what recruits had to say. It’s Monday, Inside Scoop time.
I thought the Texas defense would play well against USC’s straightforward offense because of the Trojan’s lack of misdirection, no QB involvement in the running game, Tee Martin’s conventional approach, and JT Daniels’ youth and inexperience.
AUSTIN — Stan Drayton’s search for a running back led him to Georgia, where he found Derrian Brown.
We had a mixture of flashes combined with a steady workman like effort to beat a pretty good USC defense last night. We almost eliminated all ugly. It was obvious that we had all eleven focused and they stayed ready to keep from getting ready. Well done men.
Evidently that was Texas’ 900th victory in program history. It was a good one and an important one for a lot of reasons. The Longhorns now have a lot more confidence going into Big 12 play than they would have had if the record read 1-2 and they were dealing with more questions about an inability to win for whatever reason.
AUSTIN, Tx — Following two uninspiring performances to open the season, Texas decided to turn it on. And did they ever.
UT dominated in all three phases of the game as the Longhorns knocked off No. 22 Southern California, 37-14 in front of a record 103, 507 fans on an electrically charged Saturday night at DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium.
The IT staff predicts the big matchup against the USC Trojans while also keeping their eye on some of games around the country.
While the Texas football program thrives on talent grown within the state’s borders, it also searches outside of the promised land in order to find players willing to emigrate from their home-state to don the burnt orange and white.
The Horns play host to west coast rival USC on Saturday. With revenge on its mind from last season’s close loss and the list of impressive recruiting prospects to attend, this is shaping up to be a huge weekend. Here’s everything you need to know.
Much like last week, I tried to watch and notate every run call that Texas made against Tulsa. Per ESPN’s breakdown I missed three runs that didn’t amount to much, I think those were the plays that had penalties called so I didn’t include them in the tally.
