A look at how it all happened Saturday:
Texas 7, Kansas State 0. D’Shawn Jamison gave UT the early lead with the first touchdown of his college career, a 90-yard punt return that was the fourth-longest in school history. Sam Ehlinger was 9 of 12 in the quarter but missed an easy 65-yard touchdown opportunity to a wide-open Devin Duvernay.
Texas: D’Shawn Jamison 90-yard punt return (Cameron Dicker kick, 5:25)
Halftime: Texas 19, Kansas State 0. One week after a 124-yard day against TCU, Collin Johnson continued his impressive run with a 4-yard touchdown catch. And Dicker added his fifth field goal of the season. The biggest standout of the quarter, though, was defensive end Charles Omenihu; in the span of three plays, he registered two sacks of Delton — the second was a safety. The Wildcats had a chance to score at the end of the half, but failed to punch it in on fourth-and-goal with 2 seconds left.

Texas: Safety (tackle in end zone)
Texas: Dicker 28-yard field goal (7:15)
Texas 19, Kansas State 7. Skylar Thompson replaced Delton as Kansas State’s quarterback. He promptly led the Wildcats to a 10-play drive and their first score. It was the first points the Texas defense had allowed since a third-quarter field goal by TCU last week. That scoreless span lasted 57 minutes, 31 seconds. Dicker missed a 47-yard field goal try; the freshman is now 5 of 8 this season.
Kansas State: Skylar Thompson 7-yard run (Nick McClellan kick, 11:13)
Final: Texas 19, Kansas State 14. After cutting Texas’ lead to 19-14, the Wildcats got the ball back with 7 minutes left. But Breckyn Hager blocked a third-down pass and Texas got the ball back with six-and-a-half minutes left. The Longhorns converted two key third downs (a Johnson catch and an Ehlinger run) and rode Keaontay Ingram to close things out.
Kansas State: Alex Barnes 1-yard run (McClellan kick, 9:55)
