In particular, it’s his confidence that made an impression on Thompson’s teammates. Take this one piece of sentiment from sophomore running back Bijan Thompson, via 247Sports: “Just seeing how he studies and what he studies in defenses and how confident he is, it’s pretty cool to be next to him.” WHAT THE WISE MEN...

Podcast: Breaking down the big win over Rice

Podcast: Breaking down the big win over Rice

Photo by Tim Warner/ Texas ran all over their old Southwest Conference foe in the final non-conference game. A week after the ground game faltered against the Arkansas Razorbacks, the Texas Longhorns got their ground game going in spades against the Rice Owls, setting records in the process. Texas had five running backs get significant carries, four of which scored a touchdown and three of them breaking off runs longer than 60 yards. All of that led to a school-record 7.4 yards per carry for the Longhorns in the lopsided win over the Owls. That led to quarterback Casey...

Texas injury update: WR Troy Omeire remains out with knee injury

Photo by Tim Warner/ Additionally, freshman cornerback Ishmael Ibraheem suffered a season-ending knee injury against Rice. Heading into Big 12 play, the Texas Longhorns remain mostly healthy at key positions, with the exception of one area of need — wide receiver — as the Longhorns struggle to create explosive plays in the passing game. Redshirt freshman Troy Omeire, a contender for a starting job until a knee injury sustained in preseason camp, will miss a fourth straight game when Texas plays Texas Tech in Austin on Saturday. Omeire was listed as the third-team...

Inside the Numbers: Texas found efficiency against an outmatched opponent

Photo by Tim Warner/ The Longhorns did what they should against a team with a talent deficiency in an effort to get right ahead of Big 12 play. The Texas Longhorns aren’t in a position to show up to any game and think they can get by on talent alone. That said, the Longhorns managed to avoid a hangover after the loss to the Arkansas Razorbacks and played a game that showed off many of the cultural changes that Steve Sarkisian and his coaching staff hoped to make as they took over for Tom Herman. Texas: 427 rushing yards, 10.4 YPC It felt like the complete opposite of...

Texas bounces back in 58-0 annihilation of overmatched Rice

John Gutierrez-USA TODAY Sports Why does Rice play Texas? For the money... and to boost the psyche of the Longhorns, apparently. For the first time since 2017, the Texas Longhorns recorded a shutout in a 58-0 stomping of the Rice Owls that included three touchdowns runs of more than 60 yards as head coach Steve Sarkisian’s team bounced back from last week’s disaster in Fayetteville with a strong effort on Saturday at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. In racing out to a 44-0 lead in the first half and then cruising in the final 30 minutes, Texas racked up 391...

Initial thoughts from Texas’ 58-0 shutout win over Rice

Initial thoughts from Texas’ 58-0 shutout win over Rice

Photo by Tim Warner/ Texas took care of business as expected, thanks in large part to an outstanding day on the ground. After being embarrassed on the road a week ago, the Texas Longhorns needed to get back into the win column and build some confidence along the way. Steve Sarkisian’s team did just that, have few issues dismantling the Rice Owls, 58-0. Given that Rice was tremendously overmatched as a near four touchdown underdog, it’s foolish to put too much stock into the win, but here’s a few, all-offensive thoughts... Casey Thompson took care of business. In...

Rice is still seeking its first win of the season, but the Owls will have their hands more than full if they’re going to that first victory in Austin — they enter as 26-point...
