TEXAS VS. NEW MEXICO STATE: FYI
What you need to know: This is only the fifth time Texas and New Mexico State have played. The Longhorns have never lost to the Aggies. … The last time they played was Aug. 31, 2003 — exactly 10 years ago today. Vince Young made his college debut that day, the defense forced five turnovers and Selvin Young became the first player in school history to return both a punt and kickoff for a touchdown in the same game. … The Longhorns, who will honor the 1963 national championship team before kickoff, are wearing throw-back helmets that feature players’ numbers above the longhorn logo. Players will vote on Sunday whether to keep the feature for the rest of the year. … Talking Triplets: Texas’ returning offensive leaders are QB David Ash (214 of 318, 2,699 yards, 19/8 last year), RB Johnathan Gray (149-701-3) and WR Jaxon Shipley (59-737-6). New Mexico State counters with QB Andrew McDonald (1-3, 3 yards, 0/0 in backup duty), RB Germi Morrison (159-767-2) and WR Jerrel Brown (19-250-1). … Do you get the Longhorn Network? If so, you can watch the game. If not, well, you can’t.
