LSU will measure if Longhorns really are back

LSU will measure if Longhorns really are back”

Texas spent time rebuilding its defense in the offseason only to see it shredded by LSU over the weekend.

With Longhorns quarterback Sam Ehlinger matching him almost blow for blow, Burrow and No. 6 LSU's new, wide-open offense could afford to make no mistakes.

"Most of the guys that were here past year, we've been through similar situations where we played top-10 teams before, so it's really nothing new in that aspect", Jones said.

They made 17 barrels of the ale.

The meeting will be the 18th all-time between the schools, but the first during the regular season in 65 years. "It wasn't like Louisiana, but our guys did cramp up in the second half", Orgeron said.

1,707 Games have been won by Texas and LSU. The Longhorns have also lacked a pass rush from its line and has needed to blitz linebackers and defensive backs to get to the quarterback. Texas players didn't seem to have the same cramping problems. The Longhorns were a touchdown underdog, but many expected Texas to pull of an upset and prove the doubters wrong and show that they were indeed "back". Texas' Delano Womack led all rushers with 90 yards on 13 carries and a touchdown. But whenever the Longhorns' got some momentum on offense, a LSU player had to get helped off. Texas came into the second half down 13 points, forced a three-and-out, and were forced to start a drive from their own 13-yard line.

Asked if he felt the injuries were in good faith, Herman simply said: "No idea". Ehlinger dropped back, found Ingram wide open in the end-zone - and he dropped it. The teams have squared off in the Cotton Bowl twice since, with LSU capturing a 13-0 victory to cap the 1962 season and Texas taking a 35-20 victory at the end of the 2003 campaign.

No. 4 LSU's offense came out hot in Saturday night's 45-38 win over No. 12 Texas at Darrell K. Royal Texas Memorial Stadium with 573 yards that included 471 passing yards from Tigers quarterback Joe Burrow.
