Once again, the running backs got it done for the Longhorns. Plain and simple.
Joe Bergeron got the game started with a few strong runs in finishing with 48 yards on 11 carries, but Malcolm Brown was the star of this group. The star sophomore carried the ball 21 times for a season-high 128 yards and two touchdowns after getting the rock only four total times last week.
Johnathan Gray also had a strong showing when he finally got his shot in the fourth quarter, carrying it nine times for 50 yards. The highly-regarded freshman did not get as many touches as originally hoped, but he did well with what he got and is already showing signs of improvement.
Also worth mentioning is D.J. Monroe's third rushing touchdown in as many games. With stud freshman Daje Johnson threatening his role in the offense, Monroe has played hungry and has been among the team's most lethal weapons to start the season.
The only concern for this group after this game is the shoulder injury Bergeron sustained in the third quarter, after which he did not return. Bergeron is the bruising back and the ferocity with which he runs the ball is a major asset to this team. Here's hoping that he was held out for precautionary reasons.
