For the first time this season, a kicker other than senior Trent Domingue attempted a field goal for Texas.

Junior punter Mitchell Becker came on in the second quarter and made a 24-yard field goal, cutting the TCU lead to 7-6 with 2 minutes, 25 seconds left in the first half.

It was the first field goal kicker of Becker’s career. A native of League City, Texas, he is primarily a kickoff specialist for the Longhorns.

The field goal came after Texas was stuffed at the goal line for the second drive in a row. The first resulted in a turnover on downs.

Domingue, a senior graduate transfer from LSU, made one field goal attempt and missed another in the first half. His make came from 21 yards, while the miss was from 38.
