The Good, the Bad & the Ugly: Breaking down Week 2 college action across Texas
The Good: There was no letdown after the rousing Week 1 upset win over Oklahoma, as the Coogs came out ready to play. Even without starting quarterback Greg Ward Jr. — whom coach Tom Herman opted to hold out as he dealt with what he characterized as minor shoulder issue — the offense hummed thanks to a breakout game from running backs Mulbah Car and Kevrin Justice, and steady handling from backup QB Kyle Potsma. But perhaps more impressively, the defense held Lamar running back Kade Harrington almost completely in check. Yes, I know, it’s an FCS team, but Harrington is a legitimate star with the weaponry to hurt a team like Houston; he didn’t, and that’s a huge feather in the Coogs’ defensive cap.
