Said Heaps, "Everybody knows there's a lot of work to be done. We feel that there were a couple of things that could have made that game a little bit different if we would have executed and fixed our mistakes and done some little things better."
Running back Bryan Kariya said the key to success against Texas is to "control the ball and march it down field. We're looking to come and start the game out as fast as we can, really push the tempo and score touchdowns."
Center Terence Brown said he and Heaps have fixed the issues with the snaps, and the tempo, from last week. He is looking for a much better overall performance this time from the offense.
"We need to finish drives and score more points," Brown said. "We've shored up some small things that maybe weren't executed so we could finish those drives. And then we need to play hard again. I don't think our effort was lacking playing against Ole Miss."
