The situation is simple for the Texas Longhorns — a win over the Kansas Jayhawks means the program’s first appearance in a Big 12 Championship since 2009.

However, like so many other games this year, there is some baggage that the Longhorns bring with them on Friday. Their last trip to Lawrence ended in disaster, with the Jayhawks topping the Longhorns for just the third time and the first time since the inception of the Big 12. Seniors contributors like Charles Omenihu — who prominently aired his frustrations following that loss — have yet another demon to exorcise before their work in burnt orange is concluded.

Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger is on the mend after re-aggravating a shoulder injury from earlier in the season, but outside of that injury, the Longhorns are healthier than they’ve been in recent memory. The Longhorns’ defensively have to find a way to slow down Kansas running back Pooka Williams Jr., who ran roughshod over the Oklahoma defense a week ago.

“At this point, you could tell he was kind of fed up,” defensive tackle Chris Nelson said on Tuesday. “He knows what he built us up to be and how we worked and trained for it. He just took everything out and told us straight up, doing what he’s always been doing — keeping it real with us. That’s what we love him for.”

Just the way that he teaches us to combo block and stuff like that is very technical. He brings a lot to the table. He always has a technique he teaches us to finish a block off or to wall a guy off or something.”
