Longhorns Need Resurgence of RB's Roschon Johnson and Keilan Robinson at Pivotal Point in Big-12 Play

It obviously starts with Bijan Robinson, who has continued to make himself into a star with serious Heisman hopes six games into the year. His offensive impact on the field is arguably amongst the best in the country despite running behind a Texas o-line that has had ups and downs in 2021. 

But Texas fans have seen early on this season that the running back talent on this year's team runs deep. Roschon Johnson and Keilan Robinson have made a name for themselves and they've done it in a variety of ways. 

Robinson, pictured below, displayed breakaway speed in the open field against Rice on a 68-yard touchdown. His speed came in clutch on special teams as well, as the Alabama transfer blocked a punt from the Owls in the first quarter. 

Johnson, on the other hand, has continued to out-muscle defenders in the trenches as a power back in Steve Sarkisian's offense. But the former QB hasn't been shy with showing off his shiftiness and speed on more than a few runs this season. 

Together, the two backs have combined for 55 carries for 403 yards and five touchdowns. Not much more a head coach could ask for from his backup running backs.
