In the aftermath of Texas' hard-fought 37-17 victory over Wyoming, Burnt Orange Nation showed some love for Longhorns halfback Malcolm Brown:
He dropped a high but catchable ball that would have converted a first down, but that was the only blemish on an otherwise stellar night from the sophomore. Brown's quick feet, excellent vision and feel, and ability to accelerate and get to the edge were on full display on Texas' first touchdown drive of the game, when Brown provided the spark that got the Longhorns offense going for the first time.
BON was also impressed with the performance of quarterback David Ash:
The ability to make some plays downfield is the last key ingredient still missing, but in every other regard Ash was everything Texas hoped and needed for him to be. He was efficient, mistake-free (the fumble seemed more a bad snap), and gave the Longhorns offense enough through the air to let the ground game do the rest.
The Longhorns face New Mexico next Saturday at 7:00 p.m. CT, with television coverage on the Longhorn Network.
