AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas running back Bijan Robinson is skipping his final two seasons of eligibility to enter the NFL draft and won’t play in the Alamo Bowl.

Robinson earned All-America honors after rushing for 1,580 yards with 18 touchdowns.

Texas will play Washington in the Alamo Bowl without Robinson

No. 21 Texas plays 12th-ranked Washington in the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 29.

Texas Robinson draft

Robinson played three years but had two seasons of eligibility remaining because his freshman year was the COVID-19-altered 2020 season. Robinson is fourth on Texas’ career rushing list. All three of the players ahead of him were top-five picks in the draft.
