  2022 DOAK WALKER AWARD FINALIST (OUTSTANDING RUNNING BACK): Bijan Robinson, Texas,...Robinson looks to join a prestigious trio of Longhorns who have won the Doak Walker Award, which has gone annually to the nation's premier running back dating back to 1990. Ricky Williams was a two-time winner, bringing home the trophy in 1997 and 1998, while Cedric Benson collected it in 2004, and D'Onta Foreman won the honor in 2016. Texas' four Doak Walker Award trophies are the second-most by an FBS school all time. (Wisconsin, 5). Robinson's 1,894 tandem yards, 20 total touchdowns, and 6.2 yards per carry are tops among the three finalists. He also has the most multi-touchdown games (5), is the only one of the three with multiple 200-yard rushing games and has the two longest runs among the trio with a 68 and 78-yarder to his credit this season.

The Tucson, Ariz. native has nine 100-yard rushing games in the last 10 outings, including a pair of 200-yard efforts, and has rushed for a touchdown in 10 of 12 games this year with multiple rushing touchdowns on five occasions. Robinson has tallied 100 yards from scrimmage 11 times and notched 200-plus yards on three occasions. He has 18 plays (11 rushes, 7 receptions) of 20-plus yards this season, including touchdown runs of 78, 42, 41, 40, 36 and 31 yards. He ranks fourth nationally in rushing touchdowns (18), fifth in rushing yards (1,580), all-purpose yards (157.83 ypg) and points scored (120), and sixth in rushing yards per game (131.7), while leading the Big 12 in each category. His 1,580 rushing yards on the year are the seventh-most in a season in program history, while his 18 rushing touchdowns and nine 100-yard rushing games are the fifth-most. - Texas Football

  NOV 28 BIG 12 CO-OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Bijan Robinson, UT, RB, Jr.,...Robinson rushed for 179 yards and two touchdowns in leading Texas to a 38-27 win over Baylor with 150 of those yards coming in the second half, including 115 in the fourth quarter while the game was in the balance. Both of Robinson's touchdowns gave Texas the lead with the first providing a 14-9 advantage in the first quarter, and the second putting the Longhorns ahead for good at 31-27 midway through the fourth quarter. It was his ninth 100-yard rushing game in the last 10 outings. He has rushed for a touchdown in 10-of-12 games this year.

Robinson is the only player in the nation this season with more than 1,500 rushing yards and 300 receiving yards, and he is also the first in the storied tradition of Longhorn running backs to accomplish that feat in a single season. He leads the nation in tandem yards (1,894) and is second in total touchdowns (20). His 1,580 rushing yards make him just the sixth player in UT history to reach 1,500 in a season. He is also one of just two running backs nationally with double-digit rushing touchdowns and at least two receiving scores. His 18 rushing touchdowns this season are the fourth-most nationally, and the fifth-most in a single season on Texas record. It brings his career touchdown totals to 41 overall (fourth all-time at UT) and 33 rushing (eight all-time at UT). - Big 12 Football

  NOV 28 BIG 12 DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Jaylan Ford, UT, LB, Jr.,...Ford compiled 13 tackles, two tackles for a loss, an interception that he returned for 18 yards, one pass breakup and one pressure in helping Texas to its 38-27 win over Baylor. The interception helped secure the game as it came with the Longhorns leading, 31-27, with 6:28 to go and set up the offense at the Baylor 42 on the way to a touchdown for the final score. The Texas defense held the Bears to 56 total yards in the second half, including just four yards in the fourth quarter with their only score in the half coming on a defensive touchdown.

His second tackle for loss began a three-and-out for Baylor where the Longhorns scored on the ensuing possession for their first lead at 14-9. Ford is the only Power Five player with four interceptions and three forced fumbles (one of only three in the FBS and the only linebacker). He is also the only FBS player with four interceptions, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries, along with being the only FBS linebacker with four interceptions. Ford is second in the Big 12 in both tackles (109) and tackles per game (9.08). - Big 12 Football

  Bijan Robinson rushed for 179 yards and two touchdowns, Jaylan Ford made his fourth interception of the season, and No. 24 Texas defeated Baylor 38-27 on Friday. The Longhorns (8-4, 6-3 Big 12) kept alive their chances of making the conference title game. If Kansas can beat No. 15 Kansas State on Saturday, Texas will face No. 4 TCU for the Big 12 championship. Robinson, who carried 29 times, gained 65 of Texas' 75 yards on its go-ahead drive, scoring from the 1 to give the Longhorns a 31-27 lead with 8:25 remaining. On Baylor's next possession, Ford intercepted a pass by Blake Shapen, tying a Texas record for picks in a season by a linebacker. The Longhorns converted the turnover into a 42-yard touchdown drive, the final 11 on a run by Robinson's backup, Roschon Johnson. He finished with 13 carries for 77 yards and two touchdowns. Baylor trailed by five early in the fourth quarter when Texas quarterback Quinn Ewers dropped back from his 33. A blitzing Al Walcott forced a fumble. Lineman Gabe Hall scooped up the ball and ran 16 yards for a touchdown. A 2-point conversion put Baylor ahead 27-24.

Baylor (6-6, 4-5) sacked Ewers five times. He completed 12 of 16 passes for 194 yards. Baylor made a quick move toward ruining the Longhorns' senior day celebration. First the Bears pressured Ewers into a safety when he was flagged for intentional grounding in the end zone. Then Shapen connected with Jaylen Ellis for a 47-yard touchdown and a 9-0 lead midway through the first quarter. Ellis caught only one other pass this season before that one, a 50-yarder. But Texas responded with a 75-yard touchdown drive that Ewers, not much of a runner, finished with a 3-yard burst up the middle. Baylor punter Issac Power contributed to the Texas cause with an 11-yard shank, and the Longhorns needed to only travel 29 yards for a second score. There was an exchange of field goals, and a 45-yard Baylor touchdown drive that required just five plays and 32 seconds. Shapen finished with a 14-yard pass to tight end Ben Sims for a 19-17 halftime lead. Texas put itself in danger with three false starts and a lost fumble by Jordan Whittington early in the third quarter. But a determined Whittington turned a short pass into a 19-yard gain, setting up a 1-yard score by Johnson late in the period. - Eastern Michigan/AP College Football

  NOV 21 BIG 12 OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Bijan Robinson, UT, RB, Jr.,...Robinson rushed for a career-high 243 yards on 25 carries (9.7 ypc) and a career-best four touchdowns in leading Texas to a 55-14 road victory over Kansas. It was his eighth 100-yard rushing game in the last nine outings and second of 200 in the last three. He's also has rushed for a touchdown in nine of 11 games this year. Robinson is now tied for fifth on Texas' all-time rushing list with 3,231 yards. The junior is sixth in UT history in career tandem yards (4,036) and 10th in all-purpose yards (4,052).

This season, Robinson is the only player in the nation with more than 1,400 rushing yards and 300 receiving yards, and one of just two running backs nationally with double-digit rushing touchdowns and at least two receiving scores. In the game against Kansas, Robinson scored four of Texas' first five touchdowns in pushing the Longhorns out to a 38-0 lead early in the third quarter. Two of the touchdowns went for more than 15 yards, including his last one of 32 yards. Just before halftime, he had a 24-yard carry that was inches short of a touchdown with one second remaining before he vaulted over the line on the next play as time expired for a 31-0 halftime lead. Robinson's 32-yard touchdown run was his sixth rushing touchdown and seventh scoring play of at least 30 yards this season. His 243 yards rushing were the 16th-most in a game in UT history. - Big 12 Football

  Bijan Robinson ran for career-highs of 243 yards and four touchdowns, helping Texas earn a bit of revenge against Kansas with a 55-14 victory Saturday that kept alive the Longhorns' hopes of playing for the Big 12 championship. The Longhorns (7-4, 5-3), who lost a 57-56 overtime thriller to the Jayhawks a year ago in Austin, need to beat Baylor next weekend while, coincidentally, getting some help from Kansas. The Jayhawks (6-5, 3-5) must also beat Kansas State in their rivalry game for Texas to play fourth-ranked TCU in the title game in Arlington. Quinn Ewers added 107 yards passing and a touchdown, and Jonathon Brooks ran for 108 yards and two scores, as the Longhorns bounced back from a dismal game against the Horned Frogs in which they didn't score an offensive touchdown. They scored on nine straight possessions after an opening punt and finished with 427 yards rushing. The Jayhawks' Jalon Daniels, starting for the first time since a shoulder injury six weeks ago, threw for 230 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.

Devin Neal ran 13 times for 51 yards. Robinson, who was held to 29 yards rushing by the Horned Frogs, eclipsed that total midway through the first quarter Saturday, then kept on going. He bulldozed into the end zone from 2-yards out to give the Longhorns the lead, then ripped off two long runs on their next possession to extend the advantage to 14-0. Robinson nearly had a third first-half TD run, but it was called back by a penalty and Texas had to kick a field goal. The Jayhawks were hoping to get a boost from the return of Daniels, who had them off to a 5-0 start before his injury on Oct. 8. But they went 3-and-out on their first two drives, failed on fourth-and-2 on the next one, then had a TD wiped out by a penalty and watched Jacob Borcila miss the ensuing field-goal try. Ewers added a touchdown pass to Keilan Robinson later in the second quarter. And after Daniels was picked off by Jaylan Ford, the Longhorns turned again to Robinson, who appeared to have scurried 25 yards for a touchdown but was ruled out at the 1-yard line with 1 second left in the half - then leapt over the pile on the next play anyway. Robinson had 172 yards and three touchdowns as Texas took a 31-0 lead to the locker room. - Texas/AP College Football

  NOV 7 BIG 12 DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Jaylan Ford, UT, LB, Jr.,...Ford collected an interception, a fumble recovery, a forced fumble and a team-leading 10 tackles, including six solo, in leading Texas to a 34-27 win at No. 13 Kansas State. His interception, which he returned 18 yards, set up the Longhorns at the Wildcats' 27-yard line with 1:07 left in the first half. The UT offense used the turnover to score a touchdown for a 31-10 halftime lead. It was Ford's second career interception. He later collected his second career fumble recovery with 24 seconds left in the game, which sealed the win. Ford also had a forced fumble in the third quarter. The junior LB registered his fifth double-digit tackle game this season and continues to lead the Big 12 with 9.11 tackles per game and 82 total. - Big 12 Football

  Bijan Robinson romped for 209 yards and a touchdown, Quinn Ewers threw for 197 yards and two more scores, and Texas held off No. 13 Kansas State 34-27 on Saturday night for the Longhorns' sixth straight win over the Wildcats. Xavier Worthy had two touchdown catches and Roschon Johnson added a TD run for the Longhorns (6-3, 4-2 Big 12), who built a 31-10 halftime lead and then had to make a defensive stand in the closing minutes to preserve the victory. The Wildcats (6-3, 4-2) stuffed Robinson on third down with 4:26 left to get the ball back, and Adrian Martinez quickly moved them close to midfield. But after converting fourth down with a pass to Deuce Vaughn with 34 seconds to go, the senior quarterback - back in the lineup after an injury - fumbled the ball away.

Martinez threw for 329 yards and two TDs, but he also threw an interception that turned into a Texas touchdown and had the fumble the clinched the game. Vaughn had 73 yards rushing along with 86 yards and a touchdown receiving. Kansas State has not beaten the Longhorns since 2016. The momentum swung to Texas on the fourth play of the game, when Kansas State's Julius Brents earned a questionable targeting penalty, taking the Wildcats' best cover cornerback off the field for the rest of the game. The Longhorns proceeded to reel off three straight touchdown drives, all going eight plays and 75 yards. Robinson capped the first with a 36-yard run, Johnson finished the second from nine yards out, and Worthy capitalized on Brents' absence by hauling in the first of his two first-half TDs to give the Longhorns a 21-10 lead. The only time the Kansas State defense got off the field came when Johnson fumbled at the end of a 37-yard gain. But the Wildcats promptly punted away, Texas added a field goal, and then Martinez was picked off in the closing minutes to set up Worthy's second touchdown reception and extend the lead to 31-10 at halftime. The Longhorns had 352 yards of offense by that point. Robinson had 161 on the ground, the best half of his sterling career. - Texas/AP College Football

  BIG 12 FOOTBALL DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Jaylan Ford, UT, LB, Jr.,...Ford was part of two forced turnovers to prevent scores, while also leading the Longhorns with eight tackles on the way to Texas' 24-21 win over Iowa State. The first turnover was his first career interception and came in the end zone with the Cyclones leading 7-0 early in the second quarter and threatening to extend that lead from the UT seven-yard line. The second was his first career fumble recovery that came with just over two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter with Texas leading 24-21 and Iowa State driving at the UT 32-yard line. On the ensuing possession, Texas rushed for a first down that allowed the team to then run out the clock for the win. Ford became the first Longhorn to record an interception and recovered fumble in a game since DeMarvion Overshown on his way to Defensive MVP honors at the 2020 Alamo Bowl. Ford has now led or tied for the team lead in tackles in the last six games, while the Texas defense has held six of its seven opponents this year to 21 or fewer points. - Big 12 Football

  Quinn Ewers threw for three touchdowns, linebacker Jaylan Ford produced two turnovers, and No. 22 Texas rallied in the fourth quarter to beat Iowa State 24-21 on Saturday. Ewers' third touchdown, a 3-yard pass to Xavier Worthy, put Texas up for good with 4:43 remaining. Ford ended Iowa State's chance to re-take the lead, recovering a fumble by Cyclones quarterback Hunter Dekkers deep in Texas territory with 2:28 to play. Moments earlier, it looked like Iowa State might move back in front, but spectacular receiver Xavier Hutchinson dropped a pass at the Longhorns 9-yard line.

Bijan Robinson rushed for 135 yards, his fifth straight game exceeding 100 for Texas (5-2, 3-1 Big 12). The Longhorns snapped snapped a three-game losing streak against the Iowa State. The Cyclones (3-4, 0-4) have lost four straight. Iowa State, whose offense has struggled to score this season, had an opportunity to go up 14-0 six minutes into the second quarter. But Dekkers' pass was intercepted in the end zone by Ford. The Longhorns then moved 80 yards to tie the game on a 15-yard pass from Ewers to Worthy. Less than six minutes later, Ewers then connected with Jordan Whittington for a 5-yard touchdown. Texas added a field goal in the third quarter but could not put Iowa State away. First, Dekkers found sophomore Jaylin Noel over the middle for a 54-yard touchdown, his second of the game. The Cyclones took their last lead, 21-17, on Dekkers' 11-yard run up the middle with 10:58 remaining. - Texas/AP College Football

  Texas quarterback Quinn Ewers made his return this past weekend after leaving the Alabama game with an injury. Ewers tore apart Oklahoma‚Äôs reeling defense, delivering a 49-0 win in the Red River Rivalry and finishing with four touchdowns while completing 67% of his passes for 289 yards. He also had a busy few days in the NIL space. Over the course of eight days, he announced five partnerships. First was a seven-figure NFT deal with Metabillia. Then he inked a partnership with Lucchese Bootmaker, gifting travel bags to his offensive line. And on Monday was a Sonic social media ad with his wide receiver Xavier Worthy. Now toting a $1.2 million On3 NIL Valuation, Ewers has Texas positioned for a late-season run. And all this could just be setting the table for a major 2023 campaign. - On3.com

Ewers averaged almost 17 yards on his four touchdown passes with a long of 24 to TE Ja'Tavion Sanders, one of two he threw to Sanders on the day with the other going for 18 yards.

  The Texas Longhorns overwhelmed rival Oklahoma by a historic margin Saturday, rolling to their largest win in the Red River Showdown's 118-year history with a 49-0 win at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. The Longhorns' first shutout against the Sooners since 1965 that also handed Oklahoma its first shutout since 1998 earned Texas (4-2) the Cheez-It Bowl National Team of the Week honor for games of the weekend of Oct. 8, as selected by the Football Writers Association of America. It was the third straight honor for a Big 12 team following K-State and TCU the past two weeks.

The Longhorns had 585 total yards - 296 of it on the ground - while their defense held the Sooners to just 195 toal yards with two fourth-down stops, the first early in the game that set the tone in front of the sellout crowd of 92,100. The shutout was Texas' first against Oklahoma since a 19-0 win in 1965 and snapped a four-year losing streak in the series. This is the fourth time for Texas to earn this honor from the FWAA and its first since 2018. It also earned the weekly award in 2015 and 2013 - all four awards have come after defeating Oklahoma. All Division I FBS and FCS schools are eligible to be selected. - Big 12 Football

  Quinn Ewers threw for 289 yards and four touchdowns in his return to the Texas lineup and the Longhorns handed Oklahoma its most-lopsided shutout loss ever, 49-0 on Saturday in the first meeting between the Red River rivals since 1998 with neither ranked. Bijan Robinson ran for 130 yards and two touchdowns for the Longhorns (4-2, 2-1 Big 12), who snapped a four-game losing streak in the series that dates to 1900 - a skid that began with the 2018 Big 12 championship game in the only of their 118 meetings outside the regular season. Tight end Ja'Tavion Sanders had two TD catches. While Ewers was back after missing three games, the Sooners (3-3, 0-3) were without starting quarterback Dillon Gabriel, who warmed up but didn't play a week after getting hit in the head and knocked out of the TCU game because of a concussion. Pitt transfer Davis Beville got the start, but Oklahoma opted for numerous wildcat plays without the quarterback and finished with only 39 yards passing and 195 overall.

The 92,100-seat Cotton Bowl Stadium was full for the start of the annual meeting at the State Fair of Texas, with fans in crimson and burnt orange split at the 50-yard line as usual. But long before this game was over, the Sooners side was emptying while Texas fans stayed to relish every moment. After a 3-0 start with new coach Brent Venables, Oklahoma has its first three-game losing streak since 1998. The Sooners lost five in a row that season, including an 0-4 start in Big 12 play before a 29-0 loss to Texas A&M that was their last shutout until Saturday. Their largest shutout loss had been 47-0 to Oklahoma State in 1945. Ewers completed 14 of his first 16 passes and finished 21 of 31 in his first action since a collarbone injury he sustained in the first quarter against top-ranked Alabama four weeks ago. The strong-armed freshman from nearby Southlake, who spent last season at Ohio State, was 9 of 12 for 134 yards against the Crimson Tide before getting hurt. Texas had two 90-yard scoring drives in the first quarter, capped by Robinson's 2-yard run and Xavier Worthy's 10-yard catch. In between those touchdowns, Oklahoma converted a fake field goal, only to get stopped on fourth-and-2 inside the 10 four plays later. - Texas/AP College Football
