with its offensive game plan. After being held to 36 yards on 45 attempts in the loss to Oklahoma, the Longhorns ran the ball 121 times for 672 yards (5.5 ypc) against Oklahoma State and Kansas. Expect more the same this weekend as Texas Tech ranks 114th against the run (225.8 ypg allowed).
People forget, in '04 when we beat Michigan in the Rose Bowl, we were 106th in passing in the country. We were second in rushing. So we were really good at running the football, but we'd throw a few play action passes in a game. We weren't a great defensive football team at that time. We were good. But we were a great running team, and right now we want to be a great running team and help our passing game catch up.
