Robinson wasted no time finding the end zone this Saturday afternoon against Oklahoma State. During the first five minutes of the game, he had a one-yard touchdown run to give the Longhorns an early 7-0 lead.
In the second quarter, Robinson was on the receiving end of a 13-yard touchdown pass from Casey Thompson. There was no one near him as he walked into the end zone.
While two touchdowns is more than enough for a running back, Robinson decided in the third quarter that he wanted another. He broke off a 38-yard touchdown run to give the Longhorns a 24-13 lead over the Cowboys.

Even college football legend Reggie Bush had some high praise for Robinson this afternoon, saying “I see so much of myself in Bijan with the way he plays the game.”
I told the college football world that #Texas running back, Bijan Robinson, is the closest thing I’ve seen to Reggie Bush. But listen to Reggie himself.

Robinson currently has 124 rushing yards, 38 receiving yards and three total touchdowns this afternoon.
If Robinson continues to play at this level, he might just run away with the Heisman Trophy.
