Texas needed a break with Kansas State barreling toward the end zone and a three-touchdown lead early in the third quarter. That’s exactly what the Longhorns got.
Texas linebacker Anthony Wheeler stripped Wildcats running back Charles Jones as he leaped toward the goal line, and safety Dylan Haines recovered in the end zone. The play was upheld after review.
Watch the play below.
That was a potentially game-saving strip by Wheeler.
