The Longhorns received some great news on the injury front on Tuesday, when running back Joe Bergeron was cleared for the Big 12 opener at Oklahoma State.
BEST OF MAXIM
Longhorn Digest took a look at every carry by Texas running back Joe Bergeron through the season's first three games, splitting them up by down and distance, as well as by quarter, while gauging for success rate and explosive plays.
The Texas Longhorns last won the Big 12 in 2009. Since then, they have done a whole lot of losing.
Texas had losing records in Big 12 play the last two seasons, a trend the No. 12 Longhorns (3-0) hope to reverse starting Saturday night in their conference opener at defending champion Oklahoma State (2-1).
A win in rowdy Stillwater would be a big step toward showing they are indeed...
Mack Brown will try to convince his players they should be afraid of Oklahoma State, and he will try to do it by reminding them that beating Ole Miss is not the same as beating Oklahoma State.
"We've had better personnel than the three teams we've played," he said.
The implication is that this will no longer be the case. It might make for timely coaching rhetoric...
No. 12 Texas at Oklahoma State
Saturday, 7:50pm Eastern, Fox
Line: Texas -3
Alright folks, time to lace 'em up real tight, it's conference football season. Texas seems to be back, ranked 12th and whipping up opponents on the way to a 3-0 start to their season. Oklahoma State is putting up ridiculous offensive numbers but couldn't pass their one test...
After a bye week that hopefully has given key players in Joe Bergeron and Jordan Hicks an opportunity to heal from injuries, the days are counting down before Texas treks to Stillwater, Oklahoma and an early-conference showdown against Mike Gundy's Oklahoma State Cowboys.
Once upon a time this series was decidedly in favor of the (burnt) orange as Texas won games going away...
