Texas Longhorns Football 2006 Game 3 Highlights - Rice Owls

As a team, the Longhorns made real strides following the Ohio State letdown. The defense held Rice to -12 yards rushing and just 168 total yards. Tim Crowder alone had five tackles for losses totaling -20 yards. Selvin Young and Jamaal Charles each ran for over 100 yards. Colt McCoy was solid, Sergio Kindle hit the field and Jordan Shipley had a career game.
There was plenty to be happy about.

But then there's the matter of all those flags. Texas set a school record with 19 penalties. It didn't affect the outcome of the game but in addition to the 148 yards lost to penalties, the team also lost three touchdowns and a few highlight reel plays.

Texas - 52
Rice - 7
