AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The good news for Texas?
The Longhorns played their best game of the season.
The bad news?
They still lost and that nasty Big 12 losing streak keeps
getting longer.
Yesterday's 28-to-21 loss to Oklahoma dropped Texas to 0-2 in
conference play for the first time in 50 years.
The Longhorns have dropped four straight in the Big 12 dating
back to last season.
Yet, thanks to some good timing the Longhorns (4-2) are still
ranked Number 23 -- and therefore still somewhat relevant on the
college football landscape this season.
Texas has been ranked in The Associated Press Top 25 for 115
straight weeks, longest in the country.
The streak stayed alive mostly because every team ranked from
Number 21 to Number 25 last week lost yesterday, leaving pollsters
few options to vote for somebody else.
The question now is where Texas goes from here.
