For the second week in a row, the Texas Longhorns managed to dismantle a ranked opponent — this week it was a 31-16 win over the TCU Horned Frogs. Kyle and Gerald take a look at the performance of two young standouts, Sam Ehlinger on offense and Caden Sterns on defense, as well as what Gary Johnson brings at the linebacker spot (2:50).

Then we look forward for the scary road trip to Manhattan as Texas takes on the Kansas State Wildcats. What will it take for the Longhorns to keep this momentum alive and get their first win on the road against the Wildcats since 2002 (36:20)?

As always, the close the show out by honoring Big Bertha and Bang the Drum (54:18). Kyle breaks dow the importance of Texas winning the battle for time of possession, and Gerald celebrates the new visitor’s section and what it means for the Texas gameday experience.
