Texas Football: Grading All 22 Starters from the Longhorns' Week 1 Game

It may not have been the beatdown that everyone expected, but the Texas Longhorns were still able to earn a comfortable 37-17 victory against the scrappy Wyoming Cowboys for their first win of the season.

The offense started slow and the defense started even slower, but Texas finally got over the first-game jitters to get what turned out to be a comfortable win. As expected, the run game was excellent and the defense was suffocating when it mattered most. The team has a lot to work on before the Week 4 showdown with Oklahoma State (don't worry, Savannah State is just that bad). 

On the whole, the starters played well and showed why this team has been so hyped up this entire offseason. However, there were surprises both good and bad from this group that merit keeping an eye on as the season progresses.

Here are the grades for the starters' performances in their 2012 debut and where they can improve before the conference games begin.
