The Texas Longhorns started conference play with a big win over the Texas Tech Red Raiders, scoring 70 points in a game for the first time since 2005, while adding new wrinkles to the offense in the process.

Quarterback Casey Thompson looks the part of the starting quarterback and seems to have no interest in giving up the role, passing for 303 yards and five touchdowns in the score.

He was aided by the rest of that dynamic offense, with Bijan Robinson turning in 191 total offensive yards and Xavier Worthy setting a school record for touchdowns in a game by a freshman.

It wasn’t all perfect for Texas, with the defense giving up 21 points on explosive touchdowns, exposing a potential weakness in the secondary. Changes are already coming on the depth chart, but where did the breakdown happen for Texas, and what can change in a week heading into Fort Worth?
