OBHD: Texas drops Big 12 home opener
For the second straight week, Texas was in a shoot out against its Big 12 opponent. But unlike what happened in Stillwater, this one didn't end in the Longhorns favor.
"This one hurts," Senior DE Alex Okafor said. "But you can't let something beat us two weeks in a row so we have to learn from this, put it behind us, and attack this next game."
West Virginia was 5-5 in 4th down conversions, all five lead to points for the Mountaineers.
"It was probably the difference in the ball game," defensive coordinator Manny Diaz said after the game.
A lot of question marks remain for Texas heading into the Red River Rivalry. Hear how the Longhorns plan to answer those questions in Orangebloods HD post game coverage.
