great for Maxwell. our d line had a great game....great strides made.

Houston, per the Texas website, had 4 tackles, two for loss, 1 sack and 1 pass break up.

so our guy had more total tackles and more sacks...and the same number of break ups. sounds like Mr. Onyegbule had a better game. Oh well....UT needs something....tee he.
