The cost of losing in Stillwater is an afternoon game in Austin.

NCAA Football: Texas at West Virginia Ben Queen-USA TODAY Sports

No chance at College GameDay.

No primetime game in Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium.

Not only did Saturday’s loss by the No. 6 Texas Longhorns in Stillwater against the Oklahoma State Cowboys crater any hopes of making the College Football Playoff, it also resulted in a less favorable game time against the West Virginia Mountaineers next weekend.

Following the defeat, the critical contest against the Mountaineers was set for 2:30 p.m. Central on FOX, instead of a later game on ABC or ESPN.

West Virginia responded to a crushing defeat against Iowa State in Ames last weekend with a blowout of Baylor in Morgantown on Thursday, while Texas will have to respond from its own crushing defeat.
