AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Bijan Robinson spent far too much of last season watching others play football. No more.

The Texas Longhorns running back is getting the ball a lot in 2021, early in games and late. That’s just what new coach Steve Sarkisian promised when the season began.

Robinson has been one of college football’s standout players over the first half of the season, delivering on the expectations that came with being the top-rated running back in the country coming out of high school in 2019.

With 819 total yards and nine touchdowns, he’s driving the Texas offense as the No. 21 Longhorns (4-1, 2-0 Big 12) head into Saturday’s showdown in Dallas with No. 6 Oklahoma (5-0, 2-0).
