Unfortunately for Strong, the Longhorns fell short of an upset. And no, the defense isn’t fixed yet. You guys will never believe this, but Texas’ defense failed in a big spot.
The team’s performance is on Charlie Strong, despite him having a team so young, it’s starting a freshman at QB and counting 13 underclassmen among its top 19 tacklers. The roster heading into the season was 71 percent underclassmen.
