No. 15 Texas 50, Kansas 48: The expanded boxscore

Posted October 19th, 2019


How it all happened Saturday night at Royal-Memorial Stadium:


First quarter

Texas 14, Kansas 3. The Longhorns produced touchdowns on their first two drives, including a touchdown catch by Jake Smith, who moved to within three TDs of Roy Williams’ freshman-record eight scores. Every one of Kansas’ three drives made it into UT territory, but the Jayhawks had to settle for field goal tries on the first two; they missed one and made one. The quarter ended with Kansas facing a third-and-3 at Texas’ 32.


Texas: Roschon Johnson 14-yard run (Cameron Dicker kick, 12:56)

Texas: Jake Smith 5 pass from Sam Ehlinger (Dicker kick, 6:31)

Kansas: Liam Jones 23-yard field goal (4:01)


Second quarter

Halftime: Texas 21, Kansas 17. An up-and-down quarter for the Longhorns, who were stopped on a fourth-down try but also pieced together a 10-play scoring drive to retake the lead on Brennan Eagles’ fifth touchdown catch of the season. Before that, Carter Stanley’s touchdown pass had given KU its first lead in Austin since the third quarter of a 45-31 loss in 1997. This could have been a 21-20 game, but Joseph Ossai blocked a 37-yard field goal attempt at the end of the half.

Kansas: Pooka Williams 7-yard run (Jones kick, 13:24)

Kansas: Takulve Williams 7-yard pass from Carter Stanley (Jones kick, 8:38)

Texas: Brennan Eagles 5-yard catch from Ehlinger (Dicker kick, 2:19)

Kansas: Jones 37-yard field goal (:23)


Third quarter

Texas 24, Kansas 24. Both teams scored on their first possessions of the second half — a Kansas touchdown and a Texas field goal. Texas finished with just one sack, its first one in three games, but DeMarvion Overshown forced a KU punt. It was the first sack since the third quarter of the Oklahoma State game on Sept. 21.

Kansas: Stephon Robinson Jr. 9-yard pass from Stanley (Jones kick, 9:48)

Texas: Dicker 39-yard field goal (7:04)


Fourth quarter

Final: Texas 50, Kansas 48. Whew! Dicker’s 33-yard field goal certainly wasn’t the longest of his career, but it ranks up there with the game winner over Oklahoma last year and the 57-yarder against Rice last month as one of his most important kicks of his UT career. Kansas hung around thanks to some costly UT turnovers and when Les Miles decided to go for 2 rather than tied it 47-47 with just over one minute left, there were visions of the 2018 West Virginia game floating around. The successful conversion even happened on the same side of the field, too. But Ehlinger moved Texas into Dicker’s range for the game winner.

Texas: Devin Duvernay 14-yard pass from Ehlinger (Dicker kick, 14:01)

Kansas: Williams 16-yard run (kick blocked, 10:06)

Texas: D’Shawn Jamison 98-yard blocked kick return (10:06)

Texas: Duvernay 43-yard pass from Ehlinger (Dicker kick, 8:32)

Kansas: Jones 46-yard field goal (6:56)

Kansas: Andrew Parchment 11-yard pass from Stanley (Jones kick, 4:25)

Texas: Keaontay Ingram 3-yard run (Dicker kick, 2:47)

Kansas: Robinson 22-yard pass from Stanley (Daylon Charlot catch, 1:11)

Texas: Dicker 33-yard field goal (:00)
