Texas at Texas Tech

Texas goes on the road in Week 3, taking an offense in transition up against an underrated Texas Tech defensive front.

Texas offense vs. Texas Tech defense
• The Longhorns are showing more offensive balance through two games this season than we've seen in recent years. Expect offensive coordinator Greg Davis to use more traditional, under-center sets with QB Garrett Gilbert than he used during the Colt McCoy era. Texas appears to be making more of commitment to the rushing attack, and Davis is also using a running back-by-committee approach with the undersized but quick Tre' Newton and Foswhitt Whittaker along with 250-pound bruiser Cody Johnson in short-yardage and goal-line situations. Whittaker is coming off a solid performance last week and slated to get the starting nod Saturday night.
