While Texas couldn't secure a win against West Virginia, D’Onta Foreman, starting Longhorns running back, had an exciting day—tying Texas legend Earl Campbell's record for 11 straight 100-yard games during Saturday’s game.
Campbell, who was in attendance Saturday, congratulated Foreman during halftime.

Foreman has posted over 1,400 yards this season, averaging about 180 yards per game. Against the Mountaineers, Foreman carried the ball 35 times for more than 160 yards.
As the Longhorns prepare to take on the Jayhawks next week, Foreman looks to break Campbell’s record.
