Recap: Texas vs. North Texas

Austin, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Malcolm Brown rushed for two touchdowns as the Texas Longhorns claimed a 38-7 win over North Texas at Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium in the first game under head coach Charlie Strong.

North Texas (0-1) finished with only 94 yards of total offense.

The Longhorns' signal caller was responsible for another touchdown, this time the result of an eight-yard pass to Harris, early on in the second half.

The Mean Green got their only points of the game when James Jones recovered a fumble in the end zone during the fourth quarter.

Texas piled on to their lead late in the period with a 34-yard field goal from Nick Rose and a 28-yard interception return for a touchdown by Demarco Cobbs.

Texas did not allow a single North Texas drive to reach the red zone.
