“The Heisman is a unique thing,” Sarkisian said. “Generally the Heisman goes to the teams that are winning. Whichever guy is on a team that’s winning generally is the guy that’s one of the front-runners or the front-runner for it. So if we want him to be considered for that prestigious of an award, we gotta do our part as a team and we gotta keep winning more games.”
The Longhorns move to 7-4 with their victory Saturday.
College football fans marveled at the Texas star’s big day.
“Someone is going to draft Bijan Robinson very early,” noted one fan.
He just danced around, waited and then hit the hole for the score. Just a rare prospect who will be a dominant NFL back,” tweeted another fan.

Texas is up 38-0 on the road vs Kansas & Bijan Robinson has 22 rushes for 229 yards. Bijan is on his way to 30 rushes & Sark’s previous 2 true road wins also happen to be the only 2 games where Bijan Robinson has atleast 30 rushes. Put some Bijan on it, he’s the secret sauce.🤘🏾
