NCAA Football: Big 12 Championship-Texas vs Oklahoma Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas Longhorns played for a Big 12 championship, but couldn’t hold onto an early lead, falling to the Oklahoma Sooners. Quarterback Sam Ehlinger had an incredible day, connecting several times with Collin Johnson in a record-setting performance. So what happened as Kyler Murray continued his assault on the record books and tried to cement his case for a Heisman Trophy? (4:12)

Next we take a quick trip through the NCAA Volleyball tournament, as Texas squares off against Michigan in the round of 16 (31:51), while both the men’s and women’s basketball team’s both suffered tough losses (36:23).
