Texas has struggled in the last several games, but gets back key contributors on the defensive side of the ball.

The Texas Longhorns begin the final stretch of the season Saturday, taking on the Kansas State Wildcats at home, hoping to beat KSU for the third consecutive time which would be the longest streak against KSU in school history. The Texas defense gets back several key players, including sophomore safety Caden Sterns, in hopes that the defense can stop the bleeding.

Junior quarterback Skylar Thompson has been inconsistent this year, but has really put it together over the last two weeks in wins over the Oklahoma Sooners and Kansas Jayhawks. Can Texas keep another up-and-coming quarterback from having a coming out party against them?
