Studs and duds from Texas’ loss to Washington in the Alamo Bowl

No. 21 Texas fell short to No. 12 Washington in the 2022 Alamo Bowl. The Huskies held control of the game from start to finish, holding on to a 27-20 victory.

The Longhorns’ rushing attack was non-existent without Bijan Robinson and Roschon Johnson in the backfield. Texas ran the ball 18 times for just 51 yards on a 2.8 yards per carry pace.

Quinn Ewers played a solid game despite the struggles in the run game. He looked much more comfortable with the offense, especially in the second half. However, a few huge drops by Xavier Worthy kept Texas from really getting back in the game.

Third downs gave Texas’ defense tons of trouble all night. Washington converted 11-20 third downs, consistently killing Texas with long, methodical drives.

Texas finishes the season with an improved 8-5 record, leaving much to be desired on the table. All five of the Horns’ losses came by one possession.
