Xavier Worthy

- — Texas Athletic Department

Texas, wide receiver

Yes, the Longhorns lost the Red River Showdown in heartbreak­ing fashion. But you can’t blame Worthy. All the true freshman did was haul in nine receptions for 261 yards and a pair of touchdowns. His 261 receiving yards were a freshman record for the Longhorns, the second-most in a game in school history (Jordan Shipley had 273 against UCF in 2009) and the best output ever for a Longhorn against the Sooners. In six games with six starts, Worthy has 24 receptions for 514 yards and six touchdowns. Worthy’s six touchdown receptions are tied for the second-most by a freshman in program history, while his 514 receiving yards rank fourth all-time for a freshman.
