— No new freshmen names popped up this week as players that got onto the field for the first time. As it stands now, barring injury, it doesn’t look like any other freshmen besides these 16 are in the cards to play this season.

— Consider me someone who is very curious to see what type of usage Erick Fowler has moving forward. He’s barely played in this past two games and the question of “is it worth it?” burning his redshirt is already crossing my mind.

But with seven games left, maybe we’ll see an uptick in his snaps moving forward.

— Devin Duvernay burst onto the scene against the Sooners thanks to his long, 63-yard touchdown grab. I imagine he’ll get more chances at plays like that moving forward. Collin Johnson has also being targeted a bit more.

It also looks like Duvernay is no longer being utilized in the return game. If he is, he didn’t get a return, as Armanti Foreman took over that role against the Sooners.

— Kyle Porter didn’t do much when he got the ball. With Warren out, the ‘Horns will need more from him when he spells Foreman. His lack of production may also be a motivating factor in the Texas staff trying Lil’Jordan Humphrey at running back.

— Malcolm Roach and Brand Jones were in on a total of 10 tackles. Roach had six and Jones had four.
