Marquise Goodwin has somewhat of a reputation to uphold.

It could be said that Goodwin is a big-game player, starting with his touchdown catch against Oklahoma as a freshman. But the receiver has been especially stellar against Texas A&M, taking back a kickoff for a touchdown as a freshman and scoring on a long reception as a sophomore. So is Goodwin an "Aggie killer"?

"You said it, I didn't," said Goodwin, laughing.

Jokes aside, Goodwin said it was time for the offense to catch up to the defense, especially after last week's result that saw the Longhorns lose 17-13, with the offense struggling to score and setting up 10 Kansas State points on turnovers.

"They (the defense) don't really point the finger at all," Goodwin said. "We win as a team and we lose together as a team. They've been playing lights out. And offense as a unit, we just haven't been holding up our end of the bargain."

The Longhorn offense was sparked in the second half by the insertion of Case McCoy, who led the Longhorns to those 10 points in about a 1.5 quarters of work.

"As I've said in the past, he's a good leader," Goodwin said. "He has it in him, he has it in his blood. You all know his brother. He did a great job coming in and trying to help the team as well as [David] Ash."

As for the Aggies heading off to the SEC, Goodwin said it was a non-issue.

"We're not worried about the future," Goodwin said. "(We're) just worried about the now and trying to get a 'W' this Thursday."
