Texas Fight

Strong’s team played physical. It ran the ball 58 times and in such dominating fashion, Texas had not one but two 100-yard rushers, and quarterback Jerrod Heard had to pass only 11 times to avoid complete boredom. His defensive line wore out the Sooners and put OU quarterback Baker Mayfield on his back six times. When he was upright, Texas harassed him into short gains on scrambles. For much of the day, the quarterback was running for his life.”

Sort of like what TCU did to Heard. Anyhow. It was quite a game. Not a loss and not boring. Running is not what most Big 12 teams do but if you have a dominating, blitzing defense like UT did you can limit their passing, eh, Chuck?
