Texas focusing on starting faster

AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas coach Mack Brown started his weekly press conference with a little chest-thumping about Texas' second-half stats.

And he's right, they are gaudy.

In the second 30 minutes of both games so far this season, the Longhorns have combined to outscore their opponents 35-6. They have outgained their opponents 509 to 168 yards. Texas has converted 8 of 13 third downs. Their opponents are 1-of-11.
