Texas 58, Rice 0

Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas - Bijan Robinson ran for three touchdowns in the first half and the Longhorns rolled up 427 yards on the ground in pounding Rice 58-0.

Texas quarterback Casey Thompson got his first career start, but it was the smashing running game behind Robinson and Roschon Johnson that had the game quickly out of hand. Texas finished with 620 total yards and had three scoring runs of more than 60 yards.

Robinson scored on runs of of 6, 7 and 62 yards in the first half and finished with 127 on 13 carries. Johnson broke four tackles on a 72-yard scoring romp as Texas (2-1) built a 44-0 lead by halftime. Johnson had 112 yards on three carries.

Thompson spent the previous three seasons backing up Sam Ehlinger and lost the starting job to second-year freshman Hudson Card in training camp. After Texas managed just 256 total yards in a 40-21 loss at Arkansas, Sarkisian went with Thompson to try to spark the offense.

Thompson threw one early interception when he was hit on a throw, then spent most of the first half handing off to Robinson and Johnson. Thompson closed a 28-point second quarter with touchdown passes to Jared Wiley and Xavier Worthy.

Rice (0-3) crossed midfield only once in the first half, and that drive ended in a missed 30-yard field goal attempt.

On Texas' first possession of the second half, Alabama transfer Keilon Robinson ran 65 yards for a touchdown that made it 51-0.
