The Texas speed is on display, most evident in the receivers’ ability to get open in the secondary and in the defense’s ability to get to the quarterback.
Bo Wallace has been sacked five times and has thrown two picks, both resulting in scores, though Texas had to work for the second, driving 60 yards. The first was returned 22 yards by Texas linebacker Steve Edmond.
Wallace had done really well protecting the ball in the first two games, a TD-INT ratio of 5-1. His second pick was underthrown on a ball he was trying to get deep to Donte Moncrief.
Texas wide receiver Marquise Goodwin, an Olympian in the long jump in London, has impacted the game with a 69-yard touchdown run and by getting behind Wesley Pendleton for a 47-yard gain to set up a short touchdown.
Wallace is 8-for-15 passing for 70 yards, 2 INT, 0 TD, 5 sacks.
