Two hours ahead of kickoff, Texas (8-3, 6-2 Big 12) announced that leading tackler Gary Johnson would be suspended against Kansas (3-8, 1-7) for an undisclosed violation of team rules.
Big loss for Texas. Gary Johnson leads the team in tackles with 74 and is second in sacks with 5 1/2. Freshman DeMarvion Overshown is listed as his backup but no announcement if he'll start. Overshown has played in six games, has one assisted tackle.
