Texas Longhorns Football 2006 Game 5 Highlights - Sam Houston State

Oklahoma had the week off with the big Texas-OU game in Dallas just seven days away. Some would say that Texas also had the week off... but that would be rude.
For the first time since 1992, Texas had faced a Division 1-AA opponent in the Sam Houston State Bearkats.
The Longhorns took it as an opportunity to rest injured starters Selvin Young, Jamaal Charles, and Brian Robison and to fine tune the energized defense. Sergio Kindle had a game high 9 tackles, the defense forced five turnovers, and Texas had two special teams touchdowns.
Chris Ogbonnaya showed heart with some tough runs and Jevan Snead had a good showing completing a spectacular TD pass to Jordan Shipley early in the third quarter.

Sam Houston State - 3
Texas - 56
