AUSTIN -- No words. One week after a special teams miss cost the Longhorns a shot at overtime, another gaffe on that side of the ball gave Oklahoma State the ball late as they kicked the game-winning field goal with :06 seconds remaining and beat Texas 30-27 at DKR - Texas Memorial Stadium on Saturday.

AUSTIN -- In a battle of dueling QBs, the junior was just one better than the freshman. Cal's Jared Goff passed for 268 yards, three scores and pulled out a narrow victory after UT's Nick Rose missed a game-tying extra point in the game's final seconds.
AUSTIN -- Texas had to show progress and give its fans hope, coach Charlie Strong said earlier this week. The Longhorns’ 42-28 win Saturday against Rice featured RS-freshman Jerrod Heard’s first collegiate start and snapped a horrific 3-game skid. But it begs the question: are we having fun yet?
