Texas Diggs Deep to Slow WVU’s White
The Longhorns knew keeping West Virginia wide receiver Kevin White from beating them Saturday would be crucial, and easier said than done. White entered the game one of the nation’s top receivers with 75 catches for 1,075 yards and eight touchdowns.
While he got his catches (16) and yards (142) against the Longhorns, he didn’t sniff the end zone and did little damage while the game remained in the balance. Texas jumped out to a 24-3 lead at the half and held that advantage through a sluggish third quarter. Senior corner Quandre Diggs, long regarded as the Longhorns’ best defensive back, drew the task of covering White throughout the game and more than held his own.
