Winning 4 straight hasn't happened in 6 years.

Beating KSU in Manhattan hasn't happened since 2002. 

Whether you realize or not, this is a BIG win!

It’s huge. And I love it. But def wish we had shown better... zero points in the second half is not good.

My thoughts . . . . Texas owned both sides of the LOS during the 1st half. Going into half, one team had adjustments to make while the other didn't need to.

Credit KSU for the effective changes. It took Orlando a while to respond but the D held when it needed to.

While I don't think the offense was performing at top speed, it was still enough to win in a place we always have trouble winning at.

Ingram again showed some good things. I pull my hair out when Young is in the game. He went outside on one play when a hole was sitting in front of him. Two yard loss. smh.

Special teams scored a TD this week. I now understand what TH was seeing in practice. Jamison has quicks and is slippery.

OU had an uglier game against Army last week – at home.

It was an ugly day. An ugly game. But champions win these types of games.

That puts it into perspective.

All eyes as are gonna be on NEXT SATURDAY..

Beauty thing is that no one will be expecting Texas to win.  This team plays A LOT better as an underdog.  They kind of struggle and play tight when people expect them to win.  I for one am very excited for them to play loose and put all the chips in. Make no mistake, everyone will expect OU to win and maybe, just maybe, that is the extra motivation this team needs.

Interesting stats

8 total Texas offensive possessions in the game

1 ended taking a knee

1 TD

1 FG

1 Missed FG

4 Punts

0 Turnovers

 

All of this on the road in a place where Texas has not won in a long time  

 

Texas is 4-1, 2-0 in conference  

 

Anyone here would have taken this if offered after the Maryland game.  Absolutely everyone.

Hell, after Maryland and Tulsa, I thought 2-3 was going to be good ;)

kinda, glad we won and looking back OU struggled to beat Army and clemson barely escaped against syracuse so i guess all of them but bama has weak games but i desire more from MY team. :)

Whats freaking odd is that Ehlingers accuracy comes out to 80% at the finally tally which is really good but damn i swear i've never seen any one as far off on some of his throws as him.

I thought he was well below 60% until I saw the stats. I guess he just missed on every throw downfield past 15 yards.

Sam had a bad day, but remember his position coach wasn't at the game today.

With all due respect, the things Sam did today are the same things Sam has done all season... every single game. He’s a bad passer. Shane has a better arm and accuracy and I would like to see what he could do with a pretty good OL.

And Shane would have been sacked multiple times. Sam's ability to extend the play and make first downs scrambling far out weigh his accuracy issues.
