NOV. 7: KANSAS
Kansas’ David Beaty is the only first-year coach on Texas’ schedule. He’ll try to do better than his predecessor, Charlie Weis, who was fired one day after getting shut out by the Longhorns in last year’s Big 12 opener. Duke Thomas picked off a couple of passes for the Horns, whose longest scoring drive was 27 yards. Beaty’s got his work cut out in Lawrence; the Jayhawks have gone five years in a row winning no more than one conference game.
All-time: Texas, 12-2; Last time: Texas, 23-0 (2014)
