You&rsquo;ll excuse the Golden Hurricane if they don&rsquo;t wish to face another Dana Holgorsen-coached offense.&#160; Holgorsen coached against T-U for two seasons as offensive coordinator at Houston.&#160; Combine the numbers from his two games there with what Holgorsen&rsquo;s OSU offense did to the Golden Hurricane defense Saturday and his offenses have accumulated 2,060 yards against T-U in the last 3 seasons.</P>T-U&rsquo;s decision to key on Kendall Hunter worked.&#160; He had only 11 carries for 59 yards.&#160; But when you have to pick your poison the end result is death one way or the other.&#160; And on Saturday Brandon Weeden&rsquo;s performance killed the Golden Hurricane.</P>OSU fans should probably thank T-U as well.&#160; Their insistence upon stopping Hunter forced Weeden to make throws and he did.&#160; This may also speed Weeden&rsquo;s development in the OSU offense.&#160;&#160; Cowboy fans already knew that Hunter could produce huge numbers.&#160; Now they&rsquo;re confident that Weeden can too.</P>And there&rsquo;s even better news.&#160; Weeden will get a full 11 days to rest his sprained right thumb before the Cowboys host Texas A&amp;M on September 30th.&#160; The Aggies had to rally from down 20-6 in the fourth quarter to a 27 to 20 win over Florida International (0-2) in College Station Saturday.&#160; A&amp;M quarterback Jerrod Johnson, the preseason Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year, threw 4 interceptions in the game.</P><BR/>
