Behind the Numbers: Texas Rush D

6

Not only did Dave Matter do an excellent job with the Q&A he generously took the time to answer for BON, but he also provides some of the best statistics about the Texas running game I've seen around the internet. All from an MSM source! The takeaway -- Matter is doing his job out there and doing it exceptionally well: - The Horns have given up just two runs of 20 yards or more. - Opponents are picking up just 2.5 yards on first down, just 1.3 on second down. - On 22 third-down tries, opponents have picked up the first down just three times. - Opponents have gained just 2 yards on 18 carries inside the 20. - Of the 215 rushing yards gained against Texas, 147 have come when UT leads by more than two touchdowns -- almost 70 percent. - When opponents are within two touchdowns of the Horns, they’ve run 101 times for 68 yards. Not a misprint. Wow.
