Struggling Kansas next up for rejuvenated Texas

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The Texas Longhorns are on a roll, with four straight wins that have sent them to a share of the lead in the Big 12.

Up next? Kansas, a program that has lost 25 consecutive league games and has given no sign that streak will end Saturday in Austin. But dial back the calendar to 2012 and the Longhorns will remember a game the Jayhawks could have - and probably should have - won.

Texas had to rally for a last-minute touchdown to get out of Lawrence with 21-17 victory that came on Case McCoy's touchdown pass with 12 seconds to play. McCoy had come off the bench to replace ineffective starter David Ash.

Jayhawks (2-5, 0-4) coach Charlie Weis said he'll try to use last year's game against Texas to show his players that they can still compete.

Texas (5-2, 4-0) returned 19 starters from last year's team, all players who were on the wrong end of the score against the Jayhawks until McCoy's game-winning drive.
