Texas’ run game vs. TCU

This was a tough one for the run game because Gary Patterson specializes in stopping the run and will generally do so at the expense of his pass defense until you make him quit. Whereas Texas last year flooded the field in dime and dropped back, daring opponents to try and run the ball on an undermanned front, TCU will flood the field with a pseudo dime but then overload the box so that you’re running into unblocked defenders.

TCU comes to town representing probably the toughest match-up on the schedule for Texas. This is a battle of divergent styles. TCU is quick afoot and of mind. Texas is bigger, more physical, and maybe a bit more lumbering on the headsets. TCU is mentally tough. Texas has shown to be quite resilient under Herman’s tutelage.

Texas fans don’t need to be reminded that TCU has owned the Horns for four consecutive years (the last Texas win was in 2013 against Patterson’s 4-8 team rocked by drug suspensions) outscoring Texas by an average of 38-8. Texas didn’t exceed ten points in any contest. I contend that they were all effectively over by halftime, though if you want to pretend that last year’s 24-7 loss was competitive, you’ll need to ignore that TCU effectively ran clock for an entire half of play once they staked a double digit lead. Progress, I guess.
