During Big 12 Media Days this week, Big 12 coordinator of officials Greg Burks was asked whether the “Horns Down” gesture will draw penalties when flashed by the Texas Longhorns’ opponents. “Let me put it this way: if you do a Horns Down to a Texas player as an opponent, that’s probably going to be a foul,” Burks said, according to the Dallas Morning News. “If you turn to your crowd and do a Horns Down, you’re not taunting an individual or an opponent, so it probably won’t be a foul.”
