Ole Miss' Jeff Scott torches Longhorns defense


COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- What does Texas now have in common with Vanderbilt?

They've both had their hearts broken by Ole Miss' Jeff Scott.

There may be no room in the NFL for a 5-foot-7, 168-pound running back, but if there is room for a kick returner that size, Scott could fit the bill. In a 44-23 runaway win over the beleaguered Longhorns, Scott rushed for 164 yards on 19 carries, caught a 6-yard pass and returned a punt 73 yards for 243 all-purpose yards.

Check out the punt return:

In Week 1, Scott burst for a 75-yard touchdown in the closing minute of the game to beat host Vanderbilt.
