Longhorns momentum hits a wall
By David Ubben
AUSTIN, Texas -- For a couple drives, Texas looked like it had found some rhythm.
It scored on its opening drive and drove into the red zone on its second.
The offensive line struggles bit the Horns again, though. Faced with a fourth-and-1, Cody Johnson was stopped about six inches short for a turnover on downs. Not the most imaginative of play calls, but Texas would surely like to think it could move the pile with a yard to go and the game on the line.
It can't. Or didn't, at least.
Texas trails, 16-10 with just more than 12 minutes to play.
The Longhorns forced a three-and-out, but we'll see if it can continue to move the ball. Case McCoy and David Ash continue to rotate in and out, but the Longhorns have been much more productive this half.
