AUSTIN, Texas -- Well, it wasn't easy to come up with many of these after Texas' 38-13 loss to No. 12 Oklahoma State on Saturday. A few Longhorns who did stand out in the blowout:
WR Mike Davis: Davis finished with 112 yards on a season-high nine receptions and did so fairly quietly. Maybe that’s because nobody paid attention to the second half, and five of Davis’ catches came on the final two drives of a blowout. But Davis did gain nine-plus yards on six of his catches and snagged a nice 41-yard fade to start the second half. OSU coach Mike Gundy credited him after the game as being a guy they feared.
DT Malcom Brown: We’d have to review the film to know which defenders really stood out, but Brown certainly flashed a few times against Oklahoma State. He finished with seven tackles and two of them came behind the line of scrimmage. The sophomore also deserves props for doing so while wearing a No. 96 jersey in honor of injured teammate Chris Whaley. Classy move.
RB Malcolm Brown: Hard to fault him much for his showing in replacing Johnathan Gray, since Texas had little need for a run game in the second half when trying to rally. Brown finished with a respectable 73 rushing yards on 25 carries. Among running backs this year, only Kansas’ Tony Pierson (87 yards) had a better rushing performance against OSU’s defense than Brown did.
