Down 30-27 after a sputtering 2nd half Texas offense finally got back on track for a 12 play, 75 yard touchdown drive, a struggling Longhorn defense (TCU scored on 4 of their 6 second half possessions) had the chance to get a stop, give the ball back to the Texas offense, and steal a game in Ft. Worth.

The TCU drive began with Max Duggan converting 3rd and 11 on an easy pitch and catch. The Texas defense regathered itself and behind sterling play from Malcolm Roach and Keondre Coburn, inflicted a series of negative plays on the Frogs to bring up 3rd and 14 with 2:34 on the clock at midfield.

Any of this sound familiar? It’s about to get more familiar.
