AUSTIN — It took Charlie Strong all of 25 minutes to finally put the “T” back in Texas.

With about five minutes left in the first half Saturday, the Longhorns were sitting on a first-and-goal at the North Texas 3.

On first down, Texas handed the ball off to Johnathan Gray over the left side for two yards to the 1.

On second down, Texas handed the ball off to Gray again over the left side. No gain.

On third down, Texas handed the ball off to Gray once again over the left side. No gain.

On fourth down, Strong didn’t trot out the field-goal team in his head coaching debut at Texas. This wasn’t a night to settle for anything. This was a night to make a statement.

With the crowd of 93,201 imploring Strong to go for it, he did — and quarterback David Ash won a footrace to the right corner of the end zone on a bootleg for the touchdown.

That made it 21-0 on the way to a 38-7 victory over an overmatched North Texas team. But this game was all about Strong putting his stamp on Texas football.
