Georgia’s D’Andre Swift, Elijah Holyfield present unique challenge for Texas

Georgia’s D’Andre Swift, Elijah Holyfield present unique challenge for Texas

The Bulldogs’ backfield may very well present the best rushing attack Texas has seen this season. To this point, the two-headed monsters the Texas Longhorns have seen have often come in the form of an elite pass-catching pair. Oklahoma’s Marquise Brown and CeeDee Lamb, West Virginia’s David Sills V and Gary Jennings Jr., or Texas Tech’s Antoine Wesley and Ja’Deion High each come to mind, just to name a few. More times than not, said pairs are accompanied by an elite-level quarterback, whether it be Kyler Murray, Will Grier, or Alan Bowman — the Longhorns were lucky enough to...

Dana Holgorsen confirms a rumor about the quarterback position. When it was announced that the Syracuse Orange would be playing the West Virginia Mountaineers in the Camping World Bowl, people got excited. It was ranked as one of the most exciting games of the bowl season, and there was going to be an abundance of offense in this old rivalry. A lot has changed since then. NFL prospect and WVU quarterback Will Grier will sit out the game. The same goes for top offensive lineman Yodny Cajuste. West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen has had to adapt, and one such way will be playing two...
