AUSTIN, TX [SPORTS BLOG: Read the latest from the Eyewitness Sports team]

Last season's runner-up for the Heisman Trophy connected with Jordan Shipley for a 78-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter. Cody Johnson scored Texas' first three touchdowns on short runs and freshman D.J. Monroe returned a first-half kickoff 89 yards for a TD.

Trey Revell passed for 197 yards and a 75-yard touchdown to Luther Ambrose for Louisiana-Monroe.
