After missing an open Andrew Beck in the flat on a critical third-down throw, Texas Longhorns quarterback Tyrone Swoopes redeemed himself to close out the Kansas State Wildcats in a 23-9 victory when he ran three times for 52 yards and a touchdown late in the fourth quarter.
Swoopes scored all three touchdowns for the Horns out of the 18 Wheeler package as Texas ran for more than 270 yards. An interception from junior safety Dylan Hanes set up the final drive after he intercepted a floated pass from Kansas State quarterback Joe Hubener. Earlier in the game, Haines had dropped a potential pick-six.
In difficult conditions, the Longhorns were a tougher, more disciplined team. Against Bill Snyder. The Horns just out-Snydered the SnyderCats for the fourth win for Texas against Kansas State in Big 12 play.
