The Longhorns have had so many problems stopping teams this season, it isn’t even funny. They have a real problem with the run right now, and Head Coach Mack Brown knows that there is going to be another long day on the horizon for sure if RB John Hubert and the gang really get rolling. This really works well for the Wildcats, as they would rather just run the football anyway that much of anything else, and with Texas giving up almost 1,000 rushing yards over the course of the last two weeks, anything is possible in this one.
Here’s the thing, though. The Longhorns clearly can score some points. They scored in bunches two weeks ago against the BYU Cougars before getting shut down after falling behind, and the same could be said about that game against the Ole Miss Rebels. The question is whether they can score in the 30s in this game, and we have no reason to believe that they can’t. Remember that both North Dakota State and Louisiana Lafayette were able to keep the ball moving against Kansas State, and this might not be all that much of an exception. The Longhorns are accounting for over five yards per carry this season, and if that’s the clip that they can get to in this one, we expect that this is a winnable game. We just don’t trust Texas though, and as a result, we have to go to the ‘over’ instead.
