Gray, the nation's top running back, was in attendance on Saturday to watch Texas rush for more than 400 yards in a 52-20 victory over Texas Tech. He was there with his father, James Gray, a former running back for the Red Raiders.

"I was excited to see that a lot of young players were helping the Longhorns win games," Gray said. "That lets me know that the future for us is going to be great. I can't wait to be a part of it."
