It seemed as though the table was set for a Texas Tech Red Raiders win last weekend.

Then the Texas Longhorns happened.

With more than three minutes to go before the end of regulation, and after Texas Tech running back SaRodorick Thompson scampered for a 75-yard touchdown to give the Red Raiders a 56-41 lead, Tech quarterback Alan Bowman gave the hated “horns down” signal.

Then they lost.

Been there, done that. Just ask Longhorn quarterback Sam Ehlinger.

  • Texas freshman soccer forward Presley Echols was the real thing against the Oklahoma Sooners, the Austin American-Statesman reports. From the Statesman: “After sitting out the first two matches of the season, the 18-year-old from Highland Park made her debut in style, breaking the Longhorns’ scoring drought that had stretched to more than four hours to begin the season. Even better, she got bragging rights over her older sisters, Lauren and Alex, who both prefer crimson to burnt orange. ... Echols started at forward, and she was in the right position in the 63rd minute when Haley Berg fired a low cross in from the right wing. After taking a touch to settle, Echols placed her right-footed shot past outstretched Oklahoma goalkeeper Nikki Panas.”
  • Texas men’s basketball head coach Shaka Smart added a couple more new hires.
