Saturday Wear Burnt Orange

Team Captains were DB Anthony Cook, RB Keilan Robins and QB Casey Thompson who now has thrown for 467 yards in his first two career starts.

Coach Sarkisian commented after the game saying, “I’ve been talking all week about the way we prepared and the intent in which we practiced. The cool part for me as a coach is that it showed up at the start of the game, in the first half. These guys can recognize that when you focus and you prepare, and there’s real intention in what you do throughout the week, it carries over to the game.

Sarkisian on the offense, " The red zone efficiency was really good. I thought offensively, we were able to stay
in front of the chains. We won on first downs which enabled us to be effective and get into some really manageable third downs and even in some of the fourth and short situations. This is when we are
at our best offensively."

Texas travels to Fort Worth to take on TCU on Saturday Oct 2 for another 11 A.M. CT game that will be televised on ABC.
