HornsNation beat writer Carter Strickland answers three questions about the Texas Longhorns, previewing Saturday's showdown in Dallas:

What is Texas' greatest strength?

Texas' greatest strength is the versatility it brings to the field on offense and defense. But primarily it is the offense. The Longhorns had 66 snaps against Iowa State (not including penalties) and 60 of those were evenly split between David Ash and Case McCoy at quarterback. The other six were taken by players in the wildcat formation. Beyond the splitting of snaps, McCoy and Ash bring two distinctive styles to the game. McCoy is going to run to throw. He will scramble, pull the defense out of its assignments and then dump the ball where it needs to go. Ash is either going to run or throw, but he won't do both on the same play. That allows co-offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin several options.
