The Texas Longhorns went into Fayetteville with high hopes and came away with a 40-19 beatdown at the hands of the Arkansas Razorbacks. The Longhorns were unable to get their offense going at all, while the Razorbacks had a field day on the ground - rushing for 333 yards and 7.1 yards per carry in the big win. The Arkansas offensive line had their way with the Texas front, while the Longhorns’ defense staff didn’t seem to adjust for the downhill running of the razorbacks.
Offensively, the Longhorns continue to have issues along their offensive line and the Razorbacks took advantage of it - managing to create havoc in the Texas backfield and generate pressure with just three down lineman. The Longhorns’ offense never got going and Arkansas pulled away. Head coach Steve Sarkisian made the quarterback switch in-game, taking starter Hudson Card out of the game in favor of Casey Thompson - who was officially named the starter during Monday’s press conference.
