In a game between two of the most prolific offenses in the country, the Longhorns are on pace to hold off the Red Raiders and earn a third consecutive victory.
The Longhorns added their third touchdown on a 75-yard pass from David Ash to Mike Davis that made it 21-10 following the first of two second-quarter field goals for the Red Raiders. Texas tacked on a 42-yard field goal with 1:09 remaining in the half to make it 24-13.
The Longhorns have managed to keep one of the most explosive offenses in the country from entering the end zone more than once and have held Red Raiders quarterback Seth Doege to just 141 yards on 11-for-17 passing.
Ash has been at his best with 228 yards on 9-for-11 passing and two touchdowns. Davis has been the biggest beneficiary, as he’s grabbed two balls for 129 yards and a touchdown.
