Another Shipley scores as Texas beats Rice 34-9

Freshman Jaxon Shipley caught a touchdown
pass on a trick play and Fozzy Whittaker scored twice in the fourth
quarter as Texas shook off a slow start for a 34-9 season-opening
win over Rice on Saturday night.
Shipley, the younger brother of Texas career receptions leader
Jordan Shipley, put the Longhorns ahead 20-9 in the third on a pass
from wide receiver John Harris.
Garrett Gilbert passed for 239 yards, with 115 going to Mike
Davis in Texas' new offense under first-year coordinator Bryan
Harsin. Coach Mack Brown overhauled his staff after the Longhorns
went 5-7 and missed a bowl in 2010, Texas' first losing season
since 1997.
The Longhorns have beaten Rice in 40 of the last 41 meetings.
Chris Boswell kicked three field goals for Rice.
