Texas Vs. New Mexico: Blowout Longhorn Win Highlights Offense

In the wake of the Texas Longhorns' 45-0 victory over New Mexico, SB Nation Longhorn blog Burnt Orange Nation had a tough time picking an MVP.

It feels lame to punt on naming someone, but come on: tabbing everyone tonight makes a lot more sense than singling any one guy out. For the second straight week, David Ash played well, without playing well enough to make everyone start to get excited about his ceiling. (More on that in a bit.) Case McCoy showed why he's a valuable asset as Texas' back up quarterback. Daje Johnson exploded for his first TD, and though Gray did not, you can see the excellence -- the results will come. I'm a big fan of what we're seeing from Bergeron so far, and am amused by his early season detractors. And Texas got a much better all-around effort from its receiving corps, including a desperately needed encouraging performance from Mike Davis.

On the defensive side of the ball, BON singled out Jackson Jeffcoat for acknowledgement, after the junior defensive end recorded 7 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, and a forced fumble.

Texas returns to action next week at Ole Miss.
