Texas respects Kansas QB Reesing

Texas defensive coordinator Will Muschamp talked Thursday about Kansas quarterback Todd Reesing.

"He’s completing over 60 percent of his passes, he’s a great scrambler, and he’s got great pocket presence," Muschamp said. "He does a great job with the football. He’s got two outstanding receivers between [Kerry] Meier and [Dezmon] Briscoe. They’ve got 148 receptions on the season, so they are two receivers he certainly likes throwing the ball to. He certainly likes to keep things alive.

"He makes plays out of rhythm on offense. That’s what’s hard defensively. You can be in the right call and have the right coverage, and he still makes the right play because he has a lot of ability. He’s been doing it over a long period of time. He’s won a lot of games, so we’ve got to do a great job on our pass rushing game, but he’s a guy that I have tremendous respect for. He’s a great competitor. You can see that when he plays games. I have a lot of respect for him."

The Longhorns defense that Reesing faces is No. 1 in the country in total defense and No. 22 against the pass.
