AUSTIN (AP) - They may hate to admit it, but the Texas Longhorns
have taken notice of happenings north of the Red River.
The number six Longhorns struggled to put away Arkansas State
and didn't score in the first half against a good TCU team.
The Associated Press reports it's also when fifth-ranked
Oklahoma steamrolled North Texas and Miami.
Longhorns fans take comfort in winning the last two games
against Oklahoma in Dallas, but memories of the five-game losing
streak before that linger like a queasy hangover.
Beating North Texas was one thing. The 51-13 pasting of
once-proud Miami grabbed UT's attention.
If anything, it told the Longhorns they've got some work to do
before playing the Sooners on October sixth during the State Fair
Until then, Texas goes to Central Florida before hosting Rice
and Kansas State.
