No. 5 Texas’ new running game needs work
AUSTIN, TEXAS (AP) - Texas spent the offseason loading up a new power running game that was going to get tough yards and first downs when needed.
They still have some work to do.
Texas was able to grind out 197 yards on 46 carries in a steady 34-17 season-opening over Rice. Tre’ Newton, who had lost the starting tailback job to Cody Johnson, punched in three touchdowns on runs of 1, 1 and 2 yards.
Those numbers don’t show how the Owls stuffed Texas on four straight runs inside 4-yard line on Texas’ first drive, or how they held the Longhorns to 76 yards on 21 carries in the first half.
That new power rushing attack was pretty punchless at key times in the game.
