Clemson's Tajh Boyd is now the Heisman frontrunner following a stellar performance in the Tigers' second straight win over a quality SEC opponent, leading his team to a 38-35 victory over Georgia last Saturday.
Four years ago, the Longhorns thrashed Wyoming 41-10 in their first road game of 2009. Despite the impressive score, head coach Mack Brown believes his team struggled to adjust to the higher altitude in Laramie.
The Longhorn offense debuted its new up-tempo offensive attack Saturday against New Mexico State. The team racked up 715 yards of offense and 56 points. The Longhorns were also held scoreless until the 1:48 mark in the first half by an underwhelming Aggie defense. The Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde contrast between the first and third quarters of offense is a concern going into this Saturday’s game against Brigham Young University. Last week, either Texas finally broke out against an out-gunned opponent, or the second half was a preview of the remainder of the Longhorns’ season.
