I was over at CFB Stats, browsing through the Longhorns' split offensive numbers, and, to be as gentle as possible, the rushing numbers aren't just bad; they are putrid. Texas enters the NCG with the following numbers:
485 attempts for 1985 yards, an average of 152 .69 YPG, and about 4 per carry.
However, dig a little deeper, into those numbers against teams with winning records:
VS the 6 teams with winning records, the 'Horns average a mere 2.7 per carry (219 attempts) for a total of 592 yards and 98.67 ypg.
But, there is a huge difference between a 7-5 team and a team that's actually ranked right? Dead on.
VS the two currently AP ranked teams the 'Horns have played, the numbers are abominable, and I think _the_ single key to a 'Bama victory are borne out below:
70 carries for a total of 117 yards; 58.5 per game, with an average of 1.67 per carry
