NCAA Football: Kansas State at Texas Erich Schlegel-USA TODAY Sports

The Horns beat K-State with a thrilling ending.

“When we went into overtime, I told the offense, ‘We’ve been here before, this is just like USC,’” head coach Tom Herman said. “I think it was Patrick Vahe who looked at me and said, ‘Yeah, except we’re going to win it this time.’”

Sam Ehlinger will do whatever it takes to win.

The tone was set from a lowered shoulder and a glare. Whatever you needed out of a true freshman quarterback in just his third-career start, Sam Ehlinger was going to give it to you.

Ehlinger is fearless.

"He's fearless and that puts fear into the defense," linebacker Malik Jefferson said. "It's like, 'Oh my god this quarterback is running with his head down.' And he's kind of massive. You come meet Sam, you've got to come hit him for real."

The offensive line made a statement.

“Boy, did they rise to the occasion,” Herman said of the offensive line. “They played well. When they made mistakes or gave up some leakage, I know Sam was able to kind of make him right by using his feet to get out of trouble.”

Herman wraps up the win in the post-game presser and on LHN Gameday.

Will Texas continue the reputation restoration tour in Dallas this weekend?

It’s Hate Week.

Texas has the toughness and momentum going into the Red River Rivalry week.

Is Lincoln Riley worth all that money?

OU QB Baker Mayfield isn’t worried about their loss:

“Look at the big picture,” Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield said. “We’re still in it. We have 2015 to show for that. For us, it’s not even about that right now. We’ve got to take care of business and win the Big 12.”

The Sooners lost to Iowa State and the Land Thieves message boards went nuts.
