The Texas Longhorns offense put on a clinic Saturday night, defeating the Rice Owls 58-0. It was the first start for quarterback Casey Thompson, who thrived in front of the bright lights at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium
The three-headed monster running back corps destroyed Rice’s defense for 427 total rushing yards, led by Heisman leading candidate Bijan Robinson, who had 13 carries for 127 yards and three touchdowns.
It continued with Roschon Johnson and Keilan Robinson who each put up a touchdown (112 and 83 yards respectively).
As for Casey Thompson, it was a solid game consisting of 15 completions for 164 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception.
Head coach Steve Sarkisian has stressed in the past couple of weeks to get true freshman Xavier Worthy more involved and it seems to have paid off.
