AUSTIN, Texas - The Longhorns may not have set records in their season opener against Louisiana Tech, but they did what they needed to do with the help of former Carthage running back Keaontay Ingram.
The sophomore is the main weapon on the ground for the burnt orange and it showed as he led the team in rushing and was featured in multiple passing situations.
With the game well in hand by the end of the third quarter, Ingram didn't see any action after his rushing touchdown and the old Bulldog wasn't surprised with how well his teammates played.
"I mean when you train the way we train you expect stuff like that. It's nothing new, that's nothing to be proud of you just go in there and play hard and do your job."
When speaking about the team overcoming injuries he added, "I feel like that's just a part of growth. You're going to have obstacles. I mean any football player can tell you that, you know, and we got a lot going on in the (running back) room, more than any other unit, but I mean it's all for a reason."
