New-look offense for UT this week

Texas is using lots of misdirection and running with power.

Neither was present last year, but Texas is up 21-0 in the second quarter against a UCLA team that embarrassed the Longhorns in Austin last year.

Texas has run for 102 yards on 18 carries, and freshman Malcolm Brown has emerged as the clear featured back, scoring on a beastly 16-yard run that he finished with one shoe and a handful of broken tackles.

Despite losing the shoe, he still carried a couple defenders into the end zone and stood another up just in front of the goal line.

Brown has 11 of the 18 carries, but no other back has more than two.

The quarterbacks? Six attempts, six completions. They've amassed 80 yards and a score on a very efficient day while the defense has been dominant and intercepted three Kevin Prince passes.

Prince has since been benched for Richard Brehaut.

This is just what Texas needed, and the Longhorns are on the right path for a 3-0 start heading into conference play.
