Suddenly, Texas has a bit of momentum.

Win or lose, the Texas Longhorns are going to make things especially interesting.

Fortunately for Tom Herman’s program, Texas’ third overtime game of the season ended much like its first — with a win, this time over the No. 6 Oklahoma State Cowboys in overtime, 41-34.

The Texas Longhorns played from behind throughout early their entire contest with the No. 6 Oklahoma State Cowboys. But when it mattered most in a must-win game, Sam Ehlinger led the Longhorns offense to the end zone to capture a late lead, 34-31, chewing up nearly eight minutes along the way, and the defense answered yet again, refusing to allow the Pokes to reclaim the edge and forcing a three-and-out.

Ehlinger and the offense trotted back out with a three-point lead and 3:44 remaining, but could’t chew up the rest of the clock, which paved the way for the Pokes to force overtime with a game-tying field goal. Texas struck first in OT with a Ehlinger touchdown pitch to Joshua Moore — his first reception of the game, which couldn’t have come at a better time — and Okie State could’t respond, as Joseph Ossai sacked Spencer Sanders on fourth down.

That’s now back-to-back wins for the 4-2 (3-2) Longhorns, which will likely be ranked again by this time tomorrow.

This is your post-game celebration / commiseration thread.
