AUSTIN, TX -- The game began and ended the same way; with Bijan Robinson. With a career-high 113 yards on 12 carries (9.4 ypc), Robinson paced the Longhorns offensive attack in defeating West Virginia, 17-13 from DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium on Saturday.
It's only Game 4 and the Texas offense is broken. Again. Right on schedule. Four years after starting as a true freshman, Sam Ehlinger is back in a familiar place, relying on improvisation, running for his life, trying to win games bearing the weight of the program. Doing his best to carry a struggling offense over the goal line, Herman's heels dug in so deep that you can plant tobacco in the furrows.
It’s RRS week but I‘m far less concerned by what downtrodden OU will do to Texas than I am what Texas will do to Texas. UT’s issues are internal and all-too-often self-inflicted. This Shootout features two teams with its side-by-side shotgun barrel tied in a knot. Whichever team unties the knot, wins.
