Texas falls to West Virginia on two-point conversion, 42-41: Commiseration thread

The Longhorns defense couldn’t keep West Virginia out of the end zone not once, but twice on the final possession.

In a game that came down to a two-point conversion attempt, the Texas Longhorns couldn’t come up with a stop, as West Virginia quarterback Will Grier scrambled to the left and walked into the end zone to provided the Mountaineers with a 42-41 lead the just 16 seconds left.

Of course, 16 seconds wasn’t enough time for Texas to to recapture the lead, and consequently, the Longhorns fell for the second time in as many games, and have now fallen from a tie atop the Big 12 to third place.

This is your post-game commiseration thread.
