AUSTIN – The Texas Longhorn football team survived a nail biter last Saturday defeating the blocking sled in an overtime thriller. With their passing game in shambles, the Longhorns were forced to rely on the run, playing right into the hands of the inanimate object. Texas seemed to have no answer for the obstacle, repeatedly running into the large padded steel frame throughout the game. “It just wouldn’t budge,” stated Head Coach Mack Brown in the postgame press conference. “No matter what play we’d try to run, there it was, waiting to knock our players over.” Texas was forced to rely on its kicking game, securing the victory with a last minute field goal over the opponent as time expired. Despite the setback, the team hopes to build off the win by giving fans hope the strategy of running directly into the defense will finally pay off this season.
