Longhorns' offensive woes continue
By ESPN.com staff
COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas has scored just one touchdown in its past two games, and those offensive struggles have continued against an experienced, speedy and athletic Texas A&M defense.
Texas didn't reach the end zone in a loss to Missouri, and needed a switch at quarterback last week against Kansas State before scoring a TD in a loss to the Wildcats.
Tonight, the Longhorns would welcome at least a first down. Through Texas' first three drives, it doesn't have one.
Case McCoy got the start after rallying Texas from a 17-3 deficit at K-State last week, but we'll see freshman David Ash soon if the Longhorns can't get something cooking on offense.
McCoy is 3-of-6 for 14 yards and the Longhorns trail 10-0 in the first quarter after a 49-yard field goal from Randy Bullock, giving him a school record of 22 made field goals on the season.
Running back Malcolm Brown has 4 yards on three carries.
