Texas LB DeMarvion Overshown’s targeting appeal rejected by NCAA


Texas star linebacker DeMarvion Overshaw appeared to make one of the most exciting plays of the game against UTSA. He sacked an overmatched Frank Harris Jr. to force a big play late in the football game.

The stop was a major turning point in the game in favor of Texas, but the refs had other plans.

A controversial targeting penalty was called that extended UTSA’s drive and kicked it out of the game. Texas was able to hold on to a 41-20 victory over UTSA with a strong second half effort.

The Longhorns will remain unbeaten in the first half of their Big 12 opener against Texas Tech on Saturday. Steve Sarkisian appealed the Overshow targeting call to the NCAA, but the decision was ultimately upheld.

Linebackers Diamont Tucker-Dorsey and Jaylan Ford are expected to get more playing time in Overshawn’s absence. Sarcian will feel good as the rest of the linebacker core emerges in his place.

We have great faith in Tucker-Dorsey. This man has played a lot of football. He came in on Saturday and played really well for us. We will be fine. Clearly, DeMarvion is a starting player. He’s a playmaker for us and he can do a lot of different things. But we’ll be fine. Do we want Agent Zero out for us? for sure. But if we don’t, we’ll get through the half and play good football. We got enough good players to get us through the half and come back in the second half.

Texas faces its first road test of the season when they travel to Lubbock for a matchup against Texas Tech.
