GRR: University of Texas
Texas beat previously unbeaten TCU 38-0 in Red River Conference play Saturday.
For the Longhorns, this was a nice step forward as they moved to 3-0 in the conference and in a solid position to remain atop the standings.
Fullback Aleander Teague scored two tries for Teas while scrumhalf Theo Quay, flanker Jack Slaney, lock Tom Marlow, and wing Guy Leroux all scored one try.
The University of Texas signaled a change in the Red River over the weekend with a 25-3 defeat of Texas A&M.
The game wasn’t a conference matchup—it was alumni weekend for UT and A&M was available to play, but still it was the Longhorns’ first victory over the Aggies in 15 years.
The upstart in the Red River Conference has to be the University of Texas Austin.
The Longhorns, once one of the stronger teams in the conference, had hit upon hard times not helped by a revolving door of coaches. They have a new coaching staff again, but perhaps some solidity. Certainly there's a group of players who are behind their new head guy.
The Red River D1A conference started up with a bit of a surprise.
Texas beat Baylor by the tune of 31-7 a week after a one-point win over UTSA.
It's good news for the Longhorns which have started to build with a revamped coaching staff that includes former HS All American Brian Hannon.
