I realize Texas misses LB Jordan Hicks, but this is ridiculous. Texas looks like the worst tackling team in major college football right now. Texas, which was No. 6 in the nation in run defense last year, is No. 103 now after getting annihilated by Oklahoma. Opponents also are 10 of 13 against Texas on fourth down. Last season, Texas was No. 4 in the nation in toughest fourth-down D at 5 of 17.
