No. 12 Texas 36, Oklahoma State 30: It was sloppy, but it was a win in the Big 12 opener

Texas coach Tom Herman is steadfast in his belief that as long as the Longhorns play their best, “Our best is good enough.” Saturday was a showcase in what happens when they don’t. There was dreadful execution on fourth down followed by senseless penalties. Two punts got muffed by normally sure-handed return men, plays that were so bad even Herman called it “embarrassing.” In the end, the 12th-ranked Longhorns did something they haven’t done in years, and that’s win ugly. Strip away all the mistakes, and ultimately the defense slowed the nation’s leading rusher and receiver. Texas should feel good about its 36-30 win at Royal-Memorial Stadium, sloppy as it was. The Horns (3-1, 1-0 Big 12) won their league opener, snapped a four-game losing skid in the series and proved to themselves they should always keep fighting. In recent years, giving … Read more
