AUSTIN, Texas – Yes, Texas lost to then No. 6 Louisiana State 45-38 on Saturday and the youthful but talented Longhorn defense surrendered 471 yards through the air in the setback.

But Texas coach Tom Herman was quick to defend, if you will, his defense on Monday – especially its beleaguered secondary – when he met with the press for his regular early-week availability.
