The big defensive tackle now has two more touchdowns in the last three games than Johnathan Gray.

In a lackluster performance in front of a lackluster crowd, the Texas Longhorns needed to make a game-changing play against the Kansas Jayhawks to create some separation in the second half.

A Cedric Reed sack of Jake Heaps resulted in a loss football that bounced right up to Whaley, who returned it 40 yards for a touchdown to allow Texas to take a 21-6 lead a little more than halfway through the quarter.

Whaley had previously swung momentum in favor of Texas against Oklahoma two weeks ago with an interception returned that finished with the former running back Belldozing Sooner quarterback Blake Bell.
