Grant for Grant’s third touchdown of the game and it was easily one of the most complete games Texas has played in quite some time.
The defense gave up only 141 yards rushing, compared to 264 in last year’s game and intercepted the ball three times from UCLA qb’s.Â Manny Diaz is all smiles with the way his guys played today, applying pressure and blitzes at every opportunity.
Great QB Play:Â Check
Good Defense:Â Check
Swagger Back?:Â Check
Today was a great win forÂ this young Texas teamÂ which has a bye week next weekendÂ and travels to Ames, Iowa to take on a good Iowa State team on October 1st.
