Humphrey headlined the Longhorns win over Texas Tech, snagging eight receptions for 159 yards and two touchdowns, including a 29-yard game-winning touchdown grab to secure the win in Michael Crabtree-esque fashion.

Davis played an essential role in Texas’ road win as well, totaling five tackles, two tackles for loss, snagging a key interception deep in the red zone to prevent Texas from digging itself into an early double-digit deficit. Davis later forced yet another turnover, as he stripped and recovered a fumble from Texas Tech quarterback Jett Duffey in the red zone, which led to Texas adding three points to the score board and extending its lead to 27-10.
Dicker’s impact was vital as well, as the freshman converted each of his five extra point attempts and split the uprights on both field goal attempts, including a new career-high conversion from 52 yards. Dicker accounted for 11 total points.
