Texas Finally Beats NMSU

New Mexico St 7

Texas 56

PASS: McDonald (NMSU): 32-46, 242, TD Ash (TEX): 20-28, 343, 4 TD

RUSH: McDonald (NMSU): 14-50 Overstreet (TEX): 9-92, 2 TD

REC: Bowen (NMSU): 8-83, TD Davis (TEX): 5-63, TD

New Mexico State made a half of it, but Texas hit their stride in the second half and blew out the Aggies. David Ash was what some might call efficient, 20-28 for 343 and 4 TDs with 2 Ints.

The Horns "clung" to a seven point lead at the break then scored 42 unanswered and restored order to the earth. For the 9 of you that get the Longhorn Network, you must have enjoyed it. Freshman running back Jalen Overstreet led the Horns in rushing but Texas had four backs top 60+ yards rushing.

Texas moves on to a sneaky tough test at BYU then a tough tough test at home against Ole Miss.
