Texas Football: Grading All 22 Starters from the New Mexico Game

So far so good for the Texas Longhorns, as they pasted the New Mexico Lobos 45-0 Saturday night in Austin to earn their second victory. However, there are still many valid questions about this team as they build up to next week's matchup at Ole Miss.

The statistics tell a very different story about this game than what actually took place.

The defense was able to rack up its second shutout of the Manny Diaz era, but they again started slowly while trying to figure out the Lobos' triple-option attack. David Ash posted a career-high 221 yards through the air, but his receivers did the bulk of the work on his longest completions.

Not to complain about a 45-0 victory, but this Longhorn team was expected to win with a little more style against a team that has yet to score a point in the history of this matchup.

With a stat-stuffing quarterback in Ole Miss' Bo Wallace looming this weekend, we may finally get an idea of what this team is made of.

Here are the grades for this week's starters—read on to see who improved, who stood out and who needs to step it up for the 'Horns heading into Week 3.
