Texas defense emerging as a dominant group for No. 4 Longhorns after 2 games

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — After a routine win over Rice to start the season, Texas coach Steve Sarkisian lamented no one seemed to be talking about how good the No. 4 Longhorns’ defense could be. A road win at No. 10 Alabama might be changing the conversation. The Longhorns were dominant at times against the Crimson Tide as they chased, sacked and intercepted Alabama quarterback Jalen Milroe all night. Texas had five sacks, two interceptions and nine total tackles behind the line of scrimmage. The Longhorns held Alabama to 107 yards rushing.
