The Texas Longhorns Texas opened up Conference play this week against The Texas Tech Red Raiders. The game started off with the Red Raiders receiving the ball, after a quick 3 in out the Longhorns had the ball back for their first possession of the game. In a very fluid offensive drive the Longhorns put the ball in the painted area on the field to open the game with a 7-0 lead. Once the Longhorns scored the Red Raiders game plan was nothing but an Air Assault, this was the main reason for 7 different Longhorns recording sacks on the day. That reason is more than likely why the Red Raiders were only able to get 9 total points on the day with a total disregard for any attempt at a real running game thus allowing the Longhorn defenders to pin their ears back and get after the QB. The Longhorns were able to return a Kickoff at the beginning of the second half by Senior, Shipley. The Longhorns were able to dodge most of the bullets taking home a very crucial win over the Red Raiders, 26-9. Recruiting Front: 4 Visits by Recruits during the Red Raider game. Hopefully we can land a few of these guys in week 4.
