Longhorns not buying REDemption hype

For so much made over one second, Nebraska’s going to need about 1799 more of them.

Down 17-3 to Texas, Nebraska’s high powered offense has been stymied by the Longhorns’ D and it’s doubtful that we’ll see second-half fireworks in Lincoln.

Although, Taylor Martinez is still playing. One broken tackle or a juke from Martinez and it’s a one-possession game. Not since Pat White have I actually held my breath when a quarterback has taken off running.

Garrett Gilbert and Martinez are a combined 6-for-20 for 109 yards.

Give Texas credit. They’ve played assignment-based, disciplined football on defense. This could be a game that comes down to field-possession and special teams.
