Jonathan Woo@woo_jonathanwooCorrespondent IAugust 31, 2013

NMSU 7, UT 56 -- Final

The first 25 minutes belonged to New Mexico State, but behind a 56-0 run, the Texas Longhorns managed to pound the Aggies in Austin.

A school-record 715 yards on offense was the showcase on Saturday night, and the big play made it all happen.

Quarterback David Ash overcame two early interceptions and finished with 343 yards passing, four passing touchdowns, two interceptions, 91 yards rushing and another rushing touchdown.

It was the kind of start Texas wanted, but it cannot afford the slow starts against better competition.

New Mexico State started strong, rolling with the environment and playing with great energy and effort. But when that wore down, Texas' talent simply overshadowed the overmatched Aggies.
