Plus: Texas target Evan Stewart is dropping in this weekend
From 247Sports: Bijan Robinson ran for a career-high 216 yards and two touchdowns to further his Heisman campaign as Texas held on late to upend the Horned Frogs over the weekend. Head coach Steve Sarkisian later commented, per the report, “These guys have been through a lot and they continue to bounce back. I thought today was a great example of that on a few occasions. The opening kickoff for them to take it down and take the lead, I don’t think our team really blinked. It didn’t send us into a tailspin. We missed a few opportunities in the pass game down the field.”
