Somehow, someway, the Texas Longhorns are trying to salvage what many outside the program consider a bad season.
But Thursday night's 41-16 win versus Texas Tech puts the Longhorns at 8-3, 7-1 in the Big 12 this season. And if Oklahoma State loses to Oklahoma, the Longhorns will win the Big 12.
Texas ran for 282 yards and QB Case McCoy threw for 2 TD's, which more than offset the Red Raiders who shot themselves in their own feet by collecting 11 penalties on the night.
For Tech, it was their 5th straight loss after starting the season 7-0.
