Inside the Gameplan: Sophomore secondary

Texas’ big adjustment on defense in 2018 was somewhat unexpected. The 2017 season was defined by the formation of the “lightning package” and playing with six defensive backs moving around to create the “dirty dime” effect that often clouded both the Texas cornerbacks (bringing them into the run support) and the opposing QB’s reads as they tried to make sense of it all.
