Texas tailback Cody Johnson made his first career start. Johnson, who plays both TB and FB, has more rushing yards this season than any Texas RB (166 yards, 4 TDs). He dropped the first pass of the game, which was thrown to him.
The Longhorns struck for a TD on the game's third play, a 65-yard pass from Colt McCoy to Chris Ogbonnaya, and lead, 7-0, with 13:17 left in the first quarter.
