On balance, a terrific winning effort from the Longhorns against a talented LSU (SEC!) defense.

I wrote before the game that Texas needed to win on the white boards on Wednesday if they want to win on the field on Saturday. I thought the Texas offensive brain trust did that with an aggressive, attacking offense and multiple formations and misdirection plays that confused the Tigers. Texas gave fake reads, attacked their scheme with false keys, and came out throwing power shots early. Even if they didn’t all land, that aggression set the right tone.

Given the added constraints of the RB depth chart and the baseline level of athlete LSU trots out there, the offensive side of the Texas staff can hold its head high.
