ARLINGTON, Texas -- It should be a close and interesting second half as the first 30 minutes ended with a 7-6 score.
The game has been about defense. Each team has two interceptions. Texas, though, is dominating the offensive stats (even though the numbers aren't overly impressive).
But the Nebraska offense just isn't doing anything. The six points all came on interceptions with a short field. Texas has held the Huskers to 32 total yards including eight through the air. Zac Lee is just 2-for-10 passing.
Texas has 121 total yards, 42 of which came on the touchdown drive. Colt McCoy is 11-for-19 for 97 yards. He has a rushing TD. Texas has eight first downs to Nebraska's two.
Key stat: Nebraska is 1-for-8 on third-down conversions.
