Kansas upsets Texas for first Big 12 win since November 2014


The Texas Longhorns have hit a new low.

On Saturday, Texas traveled to Kivisto Field at Memorial Stadium for a meeting with the lowly Kansas Jayhawks. The Longhorns had defeated Kansas in 13 games straight dating back to 1938.

That all changed when the Jayhawks stunned Texas, 24-21, in overtime.

It was the first win for Kansas in Big 12 play since November of 2014, so you know the Jayhawks were ready to celebrate.

With the loss to a 1-9 team that had not won a conference game in two years, you have to wonder if Charlie Strong will be able to hang on to his job.

After all, reports earlier today indicated Texas football boosters were putting pressure on the Longhorns to move on from Strong in order to pursue Houston head coach Tom Herman.

Texas finishes off the season next Friday night against TCU in what could very well be Charlie Strong’s last game. The Jayhawks, meanwhile, could end their season today with smiles on their faces.
