“This is going to be a big-time challenge this week,” Klieman said, per Inside Texas. “You’re not going to make Texas one-dimensional. We’ve been able to make a few teams one-dimensional, we’re not going to be able to do that. We have to be really good at being able to control some of the run game and we absolutely have to take away their shot plays because they’re extremely talented at the receiver and tight end position and they’re getting behind everybody.”
