Zac Lee is no Jerrod Johnson.
At least Texas has eight days to correct what was a train wreck of a defensive performance against Texas A&M. The 39 points given up to A&M tied for the most in two years. Johnson, A&M’s quarterback, had more than 400 yards in total offense.
Lee, Nebraska’s quarterback will be the next challenge for the Longhorns who were pushed Thursday night. The Big 12 championship game should be a lot easier. As good as Nebraska’s defense is, just like with A&M it doesn’t match up athletically with Texas.
There’s too much speed, too much brawn, too much Colt. Colt McCoy, for the first time this season, revealed himself as a running threat. His Heisman candidacy took a giant leap with almost 500 yards in total offense and five touchdowns.
