|Hold Jamaal Charles in Check|
After trailing big in
their last 2 games against Nebraska and Oklahoma State, Jamaal Charles
has almost single-handedly brought the Longhorns back in the 4th
quarters, rushing for 219 yards and 3 TDs against Nebraska and 125 yards
and 2 TDs against Oklahoma State.
|Get into an Offensive Rhythm|
Whether they pass the
ball or gain yards on the ground, the Red Raiders have been most
successful on offense when they let plays develop and don't force things
to happen. Although it's tempting to go for the big play in a
pass-oriented offense, Graham Harrell must be disciplined enough to
check into the correct play and take advantage of whatever UT's defense
gives him. The Red Raiders cannot afford to commit turnovers and expect
to have a chance to win in Austin.
|Play for 60 minutes|
After letting Texas
come back last season from a 21-0 deficit to win the game 35-31, the Red
Raiders still have a bitter taste in their mouths.
