Longhorns Topple Rivals in Red
DALLAS - Throw out the old game plans, Mack Brown's got something new.
And it works.
After a conservative, rushing-oriented plan in 2004 failed to accumulate a single point, Brown and offensive coordinator Greg Davis opened up the playbook and mounted 45 points, the most ever by a Texas team against Oklahoma.
"We're older, Vince is older, and the receivers are older," Davis said. "We had an opportunity to open it up, and we did."
The aggressive approach featured a number of gambles, including downfield passing and fourth-down conversions.
"This week we felt like we could get aggressive and go after them," Davis said. "That's the way we drew it up, and we executed well."
