Acho proves to be 'Macho' for Longhorns' defense
Texas senior LB Emmanuel Acho (#18 pictured) is having a phenomenal senior season in the Big 12. Through nine games, he is tied for fourth in the conference in tackles (78), ranks 5th in the conference with 11 TFLs and he has also broken up four passes. Acho is perhaps the main reason the Longhorns' defense is 1st in the Big 12 and 14th nationally. We broke the team's defensive leader last weekend in our weekly in-game spotlight.
