DALLAS -- The Texas defense finally made a stand and they did so after being dealt a bad hand after a long kickoff return and a nice grab by Oklahoma tailback DeMarco Murray on fourth down to keep the drive alive. But, the Longhorns were able to firm up against an OU run game that gashed them in the first quarter for 79 yards.
After Texas running back D.J. Monroe, a speedster who spent most of fall camp playing wide receiver, took it 60 yards to the house on the last possession, Texas has a chance to show it can move the football. Obviously, it must establish some offensive efficiency if it is to stay in the game.
It's clear that OU will be able to move the football even if it was turned away on its last possession.
