Texas Longhorns News
9-15-14: Playing UCLA three hours north of Austin in Arlington, the Texas Longhorns had upset on their mind. Unfortunately, their upset bid fell short as they lost to the Bruins 20-17. Quarterback Tyrone Swoopes threw for 196 yards and two touchdowns in his second start for the concussion-ridden David Ash. The Longhorn defense continues to be a problem as UCLA thrashed Charlie Strong’s squad for 443 yards. Texas will look to get back into win column this weekend as they travel to Kansas to take on an awful Jayhawk team.
9-9-14: Oh man what is ugly for Charlie Strong’s Texas Longhorns this past weekend. BYU and QB Tayson Hill racked up 429 total yards in their 41-7 defeat of Texas this past Saturday night. Texas avoided its first home shutout since 1976 when QB Tyrone Swoopes hit John Harris for a touchdown pass with 29 seconds left in the third quarter. Swoopes finished the game 20-for-31 for 176 yards and one interception. BYU rolled up 550 yards rushing in a win over Texas last season. The Longhorns will be in for another test this Saturday as they play UCLA in Arlington, TX.
9-4-14: Charlie Strong’s first game as head coach of the Longhorns was a rousing success as Texas beat North Texas 38-7. However, the game did come at a price: Quarterback David Ash suffered a head injury and will miss Texas’ next game against BYU because of concussion-related symptoms. Ash threw for 190 yards and a touchdown last weekend, which was plenty enough when combined with Malcolm Brown's two rushing TDs. Texas is set to go with sophomore Tyrone Swoopes against the Cougars next this Saturday.
