Texas RB Jonathon Brooks stepped up with CJ Baxter sidelined

Texas running back Jonathon Brooks is a monster.

Brooks rushed for 164 yards on 21 carries against Wyoming in Week 3.

According to PFF, Brooks had an 84.9 run grade, which in perspective, Bijan Robinson only had three games of a higher run grade in 2022. Now, I am not saying Brooks is Bijan, but after an elite game against Wyoming when CJ Baxter was ruled out, Brooks stepped up in every way possible.

Nash Talks Texas posted Brooks’ every touch, and you can see from the beginning that the run game isn’t what held Texas back for the first three quarters.

Texas will look to start off strong in conference play when they take on the Baylor Bears in Waco at 6:30 p.m. CT in Week 4.
