I interviewed Jonathan Gray last year as he accepted the award for the Gatorade High School Player of the Year. He was a great kid and based on his high school career Texas fans had every reason to be excited. He exploded this year in his sophomore season with 790 yards and a 4.9 YPC average. His running helped Mack Brown and Texas salvage a season that looked like a potential disaster...

It was Brown...

12th-ranked Oklahoma 36-20 Saturday.
Texas Longhorns DL Chris Whaley (all 295 pounds of him) intercepted Oklahoma QB Blake Bell and rumbled 31 yards for the touchdown.
Someone forgot to tell the Longhorns that they’re supposed to just roll over and play dead today against Oklahoma. Texas, playing inspired football, has taken the lead in Dallas, 10-3, after defensive tackle Chris Whaley picked off Sooners quarterback Blake Bell and took it back to the house. The 2013 version of the Red River Rivalry is shaping up to be a good one.
