The Eyes of Texas Texas - 45 Missouri - 0 Texas came into its game against the Missouri Tigers with one thing on their mind: Domination. That was the case early, and often in the first half as the Longhorns raced out to a 45-0 halftime lead on the strength of 5 interceptions of Blaine Gabbert. Colt McCoy finished the half 13-20 for 175 yards and two td strikes. In the third quarter, Interim Head Coach Vredesbyrd decided to pull back on the reigns and put the 2nd teamers in in an attempt to rest his starters for the brutal road through the Big 12. "It always makes it easier when you can come out and jump all over a team on the road in conference play" Coach Vredesbyrd stated.
