Twitter atrubow:  Let’s get this twitter party started. Can you feel the excitement for this #UT game against UTEP. Wait. Not excitement. It’s gas.
2:29
Brian:  Kansas is not playing well today. Nobody really well. LSU, Michigan, and of course Florida State all struggling.
2:32
Twitter aphares210:  NOO!! #40 #ut #hookem

Twitter 40acressports:  RT @suzhalliburton: No one from tech email me about that kindle sack. Houston recovers fumble #ut
2:46
Twitter 40acressports:  Something happening in #UT game, I wouldn’t know. FSN showing commercials instead. #40
2:47
Twitter atrubow:  Tre Newton on the touchdown. Prediction: This game will solidify that he will be starting running back the rest of the year #ut #horns
2:47
Twitter 40acressports:  Miss St ca’t get ball in on 1st and goal at 3 against LSU. Touchdown would have likely won it for MSU.
2:47
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Told @kbohls to take the over today in points in first quarter. Newton scores touchdown. #ut 7 utep 0 with 12:20 to go in first quarter
2:47
Twitter 40acressports:  RT @bevobeat: C’mon FSN. That’s FOUR commercials. #UT #FSNFail
2:48
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Tucker has consecutive touchbacks. Nice starts
2:48
Twitter stevehabel:  UTEP feel Kindle’s wrath… 4 plays to UT touchdown and 7-0 lead. #ut #horns #hookem
2:48
Twitter 40acressports:  RT @aTrubow: Tre Newton on the touchdown. Prediction: This game will solidify that he will be starting RB the rest of the year #ut
2:51
Twitter jfoster640:  Game time! 7-0 Texas already up! Thanks for the late switch FSN. #ut #40
2:51
Twitter 40acressports:  UTEP player nails Shipley before punt gets there. 15 extra yards for #UT. If Horns score again, maybe no more Shipley on returns today?
2:52
Twitter 40acressports:  RT @bevobeat: “… For those of you who just joined us,” says FSN. No. We were here the whole time. YOU were the ones who just joined US.
2:52
Twitter 40acressports:  Now FSN shows 2 plays and goes right back to commercials. Aweome. #40 #UT
2:52
Twitter stevehabel:  OOOH…that’s illegal hit on Shipley had to really hurt… this game has all the look of a 66-0 blowout. #ut #horns #hookem
2:54
Twitter aphares210:  @40acressports this is whyim following through the longhorns radio network.. ( that and i dont have cable..) #ut #40
2:55
Twitter atrubow:  It’s OK. According to the #ut SIDs, the first half doesn’t count. #horns
2:55
Twitter 40acressports:  Whoops. Colt McCoy’s slow starts continue. Pick 6. #UT 7, UTEP 7
2:56
Twitter insidetexas:  McCoy throws into coverage on a hook to Shipley, ball returned for a TD by UTEP. Tied up 7-7. #ut
2:56
Twitter suzhalliburton:  And that’s a pick six for colt mccoy, his fifth int of season. Game is tied. #ut
2:56
Twitter stevehabel:  On second thought…Miners’ Stephenson has back to back big plays — one illegal and one not. INT return make in 7-7. #ut #horns #hookem
2:57
Twitter atrubow:  Most people think I’m wrong, but I think between rushing touchdowns and five interceptions already, McCoy is a Heisman long shot. #ut #horns
2:59
Twitter jfoster640:  Colt McCoy looks NOTHING like a Heisman candidate right now. Pick 6. Game tied at 7. This is the Colt of 2007. #ut #40
3:00
Twitter suzhalliburton:  My official analysis, dj monroe is fast. That’s a 91_yd return for touchdown. His 2nd score this season.
3:01
Twitter 40acressports:  Also like that true frosh trackster Marquise Goodwin was the other returner back. That’s a lot of speed back there. #UT #40
3:01
Twitter jfoster640:  And as quick as you can blink…Texas takes the Kick-off for a touchdown! 13-6 Horns! #ut #40
3:01
Twitter stevehabel:  Can’t kick to DJ Monroe — 91-yrd TD on KOR. Then Lawrece missed PAT… weird game so far. #ut #horns #hookem
3:01
Twitter insidetexas:  For the record, there are now more total points than total yards of offense in this game.
3:02
Twitter insidetexas:  Kenny Vaccaro limps off the field, favoring his knee, following that kickoff.
3:04
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Monroe is first #ut player to return 2 kicks for scores in a career, much less in his first 4 games.
3:05
Twitter 40acressports:  Wow. Ref really needs to work on hand signals. Personal foul call and everything about it looks awkward. #UT #40
3:05
Twitter marshallboone:  I think we killed their punter #40
3:05
Twitter atrubow:  Just kick it out of the end zone. Punters never learn. Hello Malcolm Williams. #ut #horns
3:06
Twitter insidetexas:  Punter got punished by Malcolm Williams for not just taking the safety.
3:06
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Utep punter isn’t bright. Malcolm williams lit him up on near block in end zone. #ut about to score
3:07
Twitter 40acressports:  If you remember last year’s game, UTEP had deep snap problems and that resulted in a shot to the nuts. Video: http://bit.ly/66xTP #UT
3:07
Twitter atrubow:  Boos against UTEP for not going for it on fourth down. C’mon #ut fans, aren’t you a little better than that. #horns
3:07
Brian:  Longhorns get the ball at 5 yard line but can’t do anything with it. Have to settle for the field goal to make the score Texas 16, UTEP 7
3:08
Twitter insidetexas:  Fans booing, but this field goal is a good call. With the missed extra point got to make it two scores.
3:08
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Lawrence hits 20_yd field goal and #ut is up 16-7. @kbohls just lost over/under.
3:08
Twitter insidetexas:  Total points in this game: 23. Total yards of offense: Negative 5.
3:09
Twitter stevehabel:  Special teams give Horns ball on UTEP 6 — three plays later UT forced to settle for 20-yrd FG…16-7 TX. #ut #horns #hookem
3:09
Twitter 40acressports:  RT @InsideTexas: Total points in this game: 23. Total yards of offense: Negative 5.

Twitter suzhalliburton:  RT @sandersKXAN: No. 2 UT volleyball with big win at No. 6 Nebraska, 3-1.
3:12
Twitter 40acressports:  Earl Thomas with the pick! How bout some offense to go with all this great defense? #UT #40
3:12
Twitter stevehabel:  What a INT by Thomas — the ball just found him. #ut #horns #hookem
3:13
Twitter insidetexas:  The reason Texas can win a championship this year: The Defense. #ut
3:13
Twitter ChrisSanch:  #UT vs. UTEP game is on pace to end right before the #NFL games tomorrow. #collegefootball #Texas #40
3:13
Twitter atrubow:  This would be a huge injury to the Longhorns. Chris Hall is their best offensive lineman. #ut #horns
3:13
Twitter 40acressports:  Chris Hall hurt on WR screen to Dan Buckner but is up and walking off under his own power. #UT #40
3:13
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Chris hall is hurt. Helped off field. Can’t put weight on left leg. #ut
3:13
Twitter insidetexas:  C Chris Hall shaken up, helped off the field by trainers, Snow shifts over to C. #_(
3:14
Twitter ashlauren7:  Agreed!! RT @aphares210: @ashlauren7 this game has been really crazy so far!! two punt blocks in one play? GO TEXAS! #40 #UT!
3:15
Twitter atrubow:  It’s vintage Colt. As in 2008. I think he needs to run and get hit more. #ut #horns
3:15
Twitter insidetexas:  And there are now, finally, more yards of offense than points.
3:17
Twitter 40acressports:  What a catch and run by Dan Buckner!! Really great job making a play on the deep cross and then efforting his way into the end zone. #UT
3:17
Twitter ChrisSanch:  Great catch and run by @ItzDaNB! #UT #40 #Texas
3:17
Twitter insidetexas:  Malcolm Williams with a great downfield block to spring Buckner for the TD. Texas 23, UTEP 7
3:17
Twitter stevehabel:  Nice catch and run by Buckner on deep crossing route. McCoy looks better on the drive, he hits four different receivers. #ut #horns #hookem
3:21
Twitter 40acressports:  Eddie Jones is becoming a star. Finally healthy, cross your fingers he stays that way. He can really get after QB. #UT #40
3:22
Twitter atrubow:  The defense has shutout material. Unfortunately, Colt’s arm didn’t. #ut #horns
3:23
Twitter atrubow:  DJ Monroe in. Receiver now. Wild horn coming up? Probably. #ut #horns
3:24
Twitter MaryKay063:  RT @40acressports: RT @marshallboone: http://twitpic.com/j8z5p – Poor punter. #40 #UT
3:24
Twitter 40acressports:  Finally a WR screen where we actually get a couple of offensive linemen out there to block for him. Nice look play to Chiles. #UT #40
3:26
Twitter atrubow:  That last play, a pass interference, showed exactly why Newton is your starting running back. Went by Colt 2 pick up the blitz perfectly #ut
3:26
Twitter 40acressports:  RT @aTrubow: That last play showed exactly why Newton is your starting running back. Went by Colt 2 pick up the blitz perfectly #ut
3:26
Twitter stevehabel:  TX offense on cruise control now as the Horns’ speed is just too meuch for UTEP. #ut #horns #hookem
3:27
Brian:  Buckner looked like he was getting ready to stretch ball out to end zone. Too bad he was on 5 yard line. Better be little more careful with that football.
3:27
Brian:  End of first quarter… Texas 23, UTEP 7
3:27
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Official attendance 101144
3:28
Twitter texascmj5:  I think I’ll email the El Paso Times beat writers all week about that illegal hit on Shipley. Do they have email yet? #ut #40
3:29
Twitter insidetexas:  Texas looking much more efficient on offense this drive. Buckner and Chiles have been huge for Texas in this game. #ut
3:29
Twitter stevehabel:  What happened..total attendance down from last week — just 101,144 in the DKR-TX Mem. for UTEP. #ut #horns #hookem
3:30

Twitter MaryKay063:  RT @40acressports: Chris Hall looks like he’s going back into the game. Good news for #UT oline. #40 Wew I know I am glad how about you

3:31
Twitter atrubow:  Chris Hall is back in the game. Good news for #ut #horns
3:31
Twitter insidetexas:  By the way, Chris Hall is playing again. #ut
3:32
Twitter 40acressports:  Wow. James Kirkendoll just dropped that one. Costs #UT 4 points as they have to settle again for the field goal.
3:32
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Chris hall is back in game. #ut
3:32
Twitter insidetexas:  Texas held to another field goal, but now holding a very comfortable 26-7 lead
3:33
Twitter stevehabel:  TX settles for another Lawrence Chip shot field goal at the end of great drive — Kirkendoll drops TD pass. #ut #horns #hookem
3:33
Twitter suzhalliburton:  RT @CedGolden: Colt needs to pad stats today. QBs are struggling nationwide. He can get back in Heisman race with 3 more TD passes.#UT
3:34
Twitter texascmj5:  #rememberwhen we were hoping Colt would win the Heisman and didn’t know why Kindle wasn’t playing well? #40 #ut
3:35
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Fyi _ this is biggest crowd ever to see utep play a game. They might not want to tell their grandkids. #ut
3:37
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Aaron williams is gingerly holding his shoulder. #ut
3:38
Twitter jfoster640:  @40acressports Nice to see a little more press-coverage from the #ut DB’s. Although UTEP is harding Texas Tech. #40
3:39
Twitter atrubow:  #ut has most of its second-team offense on the field right now. #horns
3:40
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Mix of second teamers in on #ut o-line. Big boys get hot
3:42
Twitter atrubow:  Is there any doubt Colt McCoy is better when he’s on the run? No. That’s why you don’t tell him not to run. #ut #horns
3:42
Twitter stevehabel:  TXas defense continues to dominate. UTEP has just 16 total yards on 19 snaps, and zero yrds on the ground. #ut #horns #hookem
3:43
Twitter insidetexas:  Lots of rotation at OL. Snow, Allen, Huey and Mitchell in the game with Ulatoski still at LT
3:44
Twitter 40acressports:  Colt McCoy and I have one thing in common: We both really miss Quan Cosby. (Another drop by #UT WR.)
3:48
Twitter 40acressports:  #UT running game still really struggling to get anything going. Tre Newton not a panacea for all running game ills. Need blocking. #UT #40
3:51
Twitter 40acressports:  Not a big fan of Chiles QB package when #UT has it inside 10 yard line. Horns much better off giving Colt 3 shots at endzone. #40
3:52
Brian:  At least Jordan Shipley can still catch. McCoy puts ball on his back shoulder and he falls into the endzone for the score.
3:53
Brian:  Play was close and is being reviewed. Might have been just short but not sure how you could overrule call on the field.
3:53
Twitter atrubow:  #ut defense hasn’t even given up 16 yards so far, and we’ve got 7 minutes left in the first half. #horns
3:53
Twitter suzhalliburton:  That touchdown catch to shipley is under review. Think it’s about spot. Ruling on field stands
3:54
Brian:  Play stands. Touchdown Texas!
3:54
Twitter insidetexas:  Touchdown Shipley. Texas had two fourth down conversions on the drive. PAT good, 33-7 Texas.
3:54
Brian:  Texas 33, UTEP 7
3:55
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Off the top of my head, I think that’s the longest drive of year (88 yards, 15 plays). Looks like last season’s offense #ut
3:55
Twitter stevehabel:  Tex looks like machine on long TD drive. McCoy to Shipley is like shooting fish in a barrel. Great back shoulder throw. #ut #horns #hookem
3:59
Twitter stevehabel:  Too many TV timeouts..is this NFL football now? #ut #horns #hookem
3:59
[Comment From Wally]
How do the horns look today
3:59
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Mccoy’s first half so far – 17-23 for 210 yds, 2 tds. He’s also taken pity on utep with a pick 6. #ut
4:00
Brian:  @Wally: Another slow start by the offense but rolling now. Just had a nice long TD drive including a TD pass from McCoy to Shipley. Defense has been lights from opening kickoff.
4:01
Twitter atrubow:  Donald Buckram, the UTEP running back, was impressive when he played at Copperas Cove. #ut #horns
4:01
Twitter stevehabel:  TEX looks so much better than the teams I saw the past two nights in the Ole Miss/SC game and the Nev/Missou affair. #ut #horns #hookem
4:03
Twitter stevehabel:  UT has just 29 yrds rushing in the first 24 minutes against a team tha is one of the worst against the run in the nation. #ut #horns #hookem
4:04
Twitter johnwessling:  Ok #UT it’s time to stop beating up UTEP and time to start drinking with them!! Be nice to the Miners, they have to live in El Paso! #40
4:06
Twitter insidetexas:  UTEP: 0-for-6 on third downs. 21 total yards. Need to say again how great this Texas D is.
4:08
Twitter atrubow:  Colt again is going to end up with 350 yards passing and three/four touchdowns. I think I’m too hard on him. #ut #horns
4:08
Twitter atrubow:  Then again, it’s utep. #ut #horns
4:10
Twitter atrubow:  A Vondrell sighting. He ran the ball well for a wide receiver. #ut #horns
4:11
Twitter insidetexas:  Vondrell McGee bursts through the UTEP D for a touchdown. Texas now leads 40-7 with 2:45 to go in the first half. #ut
4:11
Twitter 40acressports:  Option to Vondrell McGee and he runs hard right through a few tackles for touchdown. #UT now up big, 40 -7
4:12
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Congrats to my sister holly who just won fan of game. Saw her on jumbotron. #ut
4:15
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Team dr is talking to him RT @rafiqelarculli: think Sergio sustained shoulder injury last drive. he’s got crew of trainers around him
4:15
Brian:  Not sure why we’re still seeing Jordan Shipley returning punts. Up 33, would rather work on offensive 2 minute drill than Ship punt return.
4:16
Twitter 40acressports:  Another great return by Shipley, but I’d rather seen #UT offense work on 2 minute drill.
4:17
Twitter 40acressports:  (And yes, I am clearly a spoiled #UT fan complaining about HOW coaches score.)
4:17
Twitter atrubow:  Buckner is officially the second-best receiver for #ut. Actually, it might not even be close. Where has Kirkendoll gone? #horns
4:18
Twitter 40acressports:  Dan Buckner again! Love see him running down the seam, that’s impossible to cover every play. Touchdown #UT! Texas leads 47-7
4:18
Twitter atrubow:  That was a one-hander by Buckner. #ut #horns
4:19
Twitter jfoster640:  @40acressports Can someone ask FSN to place a few more mics near the band? Can hardly hear Texas Fight after a score. #ut #40
4:19
Twitter Iam_TheStar:  Am I supposed to be excited about this game? Cause Im not! That’s mean ain’t it but I dnt care!! Just have a good game #40!
4:19
Twitter stevehabel:  McCoy of old is back with spot-perfect passes against an overmatched opponent. Throw to Buckner was prime, UT leads 47-7. #ut #horns #hookem
4:20
Twitter insidetexas:  Buckner with an impressive one-hand grab for the TD. Texas now up 47-7. Something tells me Garrett Gilbert is gonna get some playing time.
4:20
Twitter atrubow:  The crowd has pretty much left this #ut UTEP game. And I’m jealous. #horns
4:22
Twitter atrubow:  Thomas with his second interception (that one looked like a reception) of the day. #ut #horns
4:22
Twitter 40acressports:  2nd interception by Earl Thomas would have been another score for #UT but he barely steps out of bounds. Texas going for more at 50 yd line?
4:23
Twitter stevehabel:  Thomas having a huge half — 2 INTs, the second could have gone back for a TD if he could have stayed in bounds. #ut #horns #hookem
4:25
Twitter atrubow:  field-goal range for the rest of the season … 53 and a half yards. #ut #horns
4:26
Twitter 40acressports:  Hunter Lawrence’s 54 yd field goal is 3 inches too short. Just a little further and that one wouldve given #UT 50 1st half points.
4:26
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Looks like sergio kindle is ok. He’s trotting off field. Trainers left him alone on the bench
4:26
Twitter stevehabel:  Well, at least the Horns know Larwrence’s range now — it’s 53 1/2 yards as 54-yrd attempt hits crossbar and bounds back. #ut #horns #hookem
4:27
Twitter insidetexas:  Lawrence hits the crossbar, comes within two inches of hitting a 54 yard FG. Halftime. 47-7 #ut
4:27
Brian:  Halftime score: Texas 47, UTEP 7
4:28
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Hunter lawrence’s 54 yd attempt was good from 53. He hit the crossbar and got a bad bounce. #ut up 47-7
4:28
Twitter stevehabel:  First half stats: Tot offense: UT- 320 on 45 snaps; UTEP 41 on 29 snaps. McCoy 24-of-30 for 261 yards and 3 TDs. #ut #horns #hookem
4:30
Twitter stevehabel:  Take away the INT ret for TD and UTEP was shutout — UT defense is really good, even as Kindle was dinged late in half. #ut #horns #hookem
4:31
Twitter stevehabel:  The announced crowd of 101,144 has shrunk to about 30,000; the heat — and the blowout — is taking it toll on the fans. #ut #horns #hookem
4:42
Twitter 40acressports:  Colt McCoy needs 1 maybe 2 second half series and then it’s time for frosh QB Garrett Gilbert. Put him in and run regular offense. #UT #40
4:47
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Halftime injury report on aaron williams and sergio kindle. Both have shoulder probs. Will know more at end of game. #ut
4:47
Twitter livnstrong:  Show of hands…who among us got to see HOF inductee Bam Bam in action at DKR back in the day? ::: raises hand ::: #ut #40
4:48
Twitter 40acressports:  Whoops. 2nd half begins with Marquise Goodwin forgetting he’s supposed to catch the kickoff. #UT starts half at own 9 yd line.
4:48
Twitter 40acressports:  RT @suzhalliburton: Halftime injury report on aaron williams and sergio kindle. Both have shoulder probs. Will know more at end of game. #ut
4:49
Twitter 40acressports:  Good to see James Kirkendoll make a tough catch. #UT offense needs him. Looks like he was dinged up on the play.
4:51
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Chris hall looks like he has a shoulder prob. Painful day for longhorns #ut
4:53
Twitter atrubow:  Great running play. Also proved that Vondrell McGee is not that fast. #ut #Horns
4:53
Twitter 40acressports:  Just when Tre Newton is named starter, he struggles (due to line IMO) and Vondrell McGee has big game. Nice long run up guy by McGee. #UT
4:54
Twitter 40acressports:  Apparently G Davis feels exact opposite of me, another 1st and goal play with Chiles in at quarterback. #UT #40
4:55
Twitter martinbamford:  @mrianthomas No sign of Baron Turner in there. Dan Waters and Amanda Bowe are only FSA mentions, in at #40 and #41 respectively.
4:55
Twitter insidetexas:  Another field goal makes it an even 50 for Texas. 50-7 #ut
4:55
Twitter suzhalliburton:  That was some ball control on opening drive _ 87 yds on 12 plays, 6:09 #ut
4:56
Twitter stevehabel:  Nice UT drive eats up more than 6 min of the 3rd qtr. ends with another Lawrence FG. UT leads 50-7 Will we see more of McCoy #horns #hookem
4:59
Twitter 40acressports:  Blake Gideon with a very nice interception. Nice patience and does nice job bringing it down at its highest point. #UT football.
4:59
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Gideon gets a pick and gilbert gets to be a quarterback
4:59
Twitter stevehabel:  Good thing UT has an open week ahead — a lot of Horns players are dinged up. #ut #horns #hookem
5:00
Twitter 40acressports:  Garrett Gilbert into the game at quarterback. #UT #40
5:00
Twitter insidetexas:  Black Gideon’s pick makes it three INTs for the defense.
5:00
Twitter insidetexas:  Garrett Gilbert in at QB.
5:01
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Sergio kindle still is in uniform. He’s hanging on the sideline #ut
5:01
Twitter 40acressports:  Gilbert might want to move a little quicker on WR screen. A tad deliberate. Another nice effort by Goodwin. Speedster fights for big yds.
5:01
Twitter stevehabel:  Gilbert in after great INT for Gideon, his first as a Horn. Expect UT to continue to run it reg. offense. #ut #horns #hookem
5:03
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Mcgee is over 100 yards. That’s first 100 yard game for #ut back since cody johnson against aggies
5:04
Twitter stevehabel:  Holding penalty negates 17-yrd TD run for Whittaker on his first carry of the season. Try again. #ut #horns #hookem
5:04
Twitter 40acressports:  Fozzy Whittaker sighting. Nice run for a TD but called back by holding by TE Ahmard Howard. Good looking run. #UT #40
5:04
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Poor fozzy whittaker. He gets nice gain on first carry of season and refs call holding #ut
5:04
Twitter insidetexas:  Fozzy Whittaker’s first carry of the season is a TD!…that gets called back for holding.
5:04
Twitter 40acressports:  Garrett Gilbert really likes M Goodwin. Another catch for 84. #UT

5:06

5:07
Twitter Bill_Morrison:  Sounds like #longhorns were in a bar fight. Everyone’s banged up. Glad we have a week off. #40 #UT http://myloc.me/MWFw
5:09
Twitter stevehabel:  Horns have run 21 plays to UTEP’s 2 so far in the 3rd qtr.; leads at a solid 50 points. Whatever happened to Mike Price. #ut #horns #hookem
5:16
Twitter 40acressports:  Seriously, this ref doesn’t know what the personal foul signal is supposed to look like. He appears to be giving middle finger. #UT
5:17
Brian:  Weird. Why is Shipley back there?
5:18
Twitter stevehabel:  Whitaker finally gets his 1st carry, with 2:31 to play in the 3rd qtr of a 57-7 game. #ut #horns #hookem

Twitter insidetexas:  UTEP has more penalty yards (55) than yards of offense (40). #ut
5:20

5:22
Twitter 40acressports:  1st #UT punt of the game was a real ugly one from Justin Tucker. Didn’t do rugby style, maybe should have.
5:26
Twitter insidetexas:  Ben Wells pulls down INT number four for the defense.
5:26
Twitter suzhalliburton:  great day for #ut dbs from the Golden Triangle. Bens wells gets a pick to go w/earl thomas’ two. And yes, I’m a Golden T girl.
5:27
Twitter 40acressports:  4 picks today by #UT safeties as Ben Wells gets himself one. Great play by defensive backfield.
5:28
Brian:  End of 3rd quarter. UT driving, leading 57-7.
5:29
Twitter stevehabel:  UT ran 26 plays in the 3rd qtr to the Miners’ eight. Two of those UTEP plays were Tex Interceptions. #ut #horns #hookem
5:29
Twitter suzhalliburton:  #ut had six picks in all of 08. Longhorns have four against UTEP. Hmmm, is the drought over?
5:30
Twitter suzhalliburton:  fozzy whittaker gets his touchdown and #ut is about to be up by 57 with a quarter to go.
5:30

5:31
Twitter insidetexas:  Fozzy Whittaker opens 4th qtr with a TD run. 64-7.
5:31
Twitter stevehabel:  Fozzy scores on 1st play of 4th qtr on a nice shake and bake run. 64-7 – Mike Price wants to go back to Ala., not really. #ut #horns #hookem
5:32
Twitter 40acressports:  Not sure what kind of scrubs UTEP has in there, but man does Fozzy Whittaker look good. #UT running back situation cloudy again.
5:36
Twitter stevehabel:  That was Fozzy’s first TD ever, if he could stay healthy he could be a real force. #ut #horns #hookem
5:37
Twitter suzhalliburton:  for those noticing trends, if UTEP doesn’t score an offensive touchdown, it’ll be first time in six years. #ut
5:37
Twitter 40acressports:  RT @mikefinger: For those #UT fans worried about Colt’s Heisman hopes — Jahvid Best has 55 yards on 16 carries today. And Cal is losing.

Twitter stevehabel:  UT Volleyball shows it is a force as well, beating Nebraska in four games to stay undefeated. #ut #horns #hookem
5:38
Twitter MartiLovesDEW:  @DEWMisfitCrew Misfit #40 here!! 🙂 Yeah where the hell are you @DonnieWahlberg ?
5:40
Twitter stevehabel:  That was UT volleyball’s first win at Nebraska since 1988. I like V-ball (and my daughter does as well). #ut #horns #hookem
5:41
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Sherrod Harris is getting his turn to see if he can lead #ut on a score.
5:43
Twitter stevehabel:  Harris in at QB with almost 11 minutes left to play — the beat goes on. #ut #horns #hookem
5:45
Twitter 40acressports:  RT @stevehabel: Harris in at QB with almost 11 minutes left to play — the beat goes on. #ut #horns #hookem

Twitter Bill_Morrison:  So @suzhalliburton, what asterick will ESPN put on #UT win today? #longhorns. #hookem #colt4heisman #40
5:46
Twitter suzhalliburton:  Jeremy Hills is broken. He had a fabulous run, then fumbled it into the end zone. A UTEP writer just joked “that could be turning point.”
5:47
Twitter stevehabel:  Hills runs through gaping hole while juggling the ball, runs all the way to the UTEP 5 where he is hit by his own man…
5:47
Twitter stevehabel:  and fumbles again into the end zone for a touchback. Wildest play of the season so far…and it doesn;t matter. #ut #horns #hookem
5:48
Twitter 40acressports:  Jeremy Hills looks good running ball, but may never carry the ball again. Fumbles twice on same play, neither time hit by UTEP player. #UT
5:51
Twitter 40acressports:  You can hear Mack in background cheering Curtis Brown for not going after that punt as much as he’d cheer a touchdown. #UT
5:53
Twitter stevehabel:  Texas has now rushed for 266 yards — including 207 in mop up time after it was 47-7 at the half. #ut #horns #hookem
5:54
Twitter suzhalliburton:  for those wondering why #ut hit on all cylinders today, maybe it’s because @kbohls skipped this game. I’m big on analyzing trends. Hah
5:54
Twitter 40acressports:  Walkons now in for #UT. Think Sherrod Harris has earned more than 1 series.
5:55
Twitter suzhalliburton:  It’s been awhile since #ut used four QBs in one game. Walk-on Trevor Walker is in
5:58
Twitter 40acressports:  Texas fumble. Nice tackle by Trevor Walker to stop the UTEP return. #UT

Twitter insidetexas:  UTEP has more plays (49) than yards (45). #ut
