This week, the three of them will be too much for Oklahoma and take the next step on Texas' road back from a 5-7 season in 2010. The past two years, Oklahoma has earned victories at the Cotton Bowl, but it's Texas' turn and Brown, Bergeron and Gray will lead the way.
Brown is coming back from an ankle injury and his status is shaky, but Bergeron and Gray filled in admirably against West Virginia last week. Gray showed the best burst of any back in a long, long time with a 49-yard sprint against the Mountaineers.
He might break another one this week, and the freshman's long wait for his first career touchdown ends on Saturday. Bergeron has embraced his status as a touchdown vulture this season, leading the Big 12 with nine rushing touchdowns.
The three of them can be difficult for any defense to stop, and they'll prove that to Oklahoma on Saturday, transforming into players who have written a solid legacy in the Red River Rivalry with a performance that carries the Longhorns to a victory against their biggest rival.
