AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Texas ended four years of humiliation at the hands of TCU and put the rest of the Big 12 on notice: Yes, these Longhorns may indeed be back among the conference title contenders.
With two straight wins over ranked opponents - including Saturday's emphatic 31-16 victory over the No. 17 Horned Frogs - it's probably OK to say that now.
"In the past, we'd beat a ranked opponent and blow it away the next week. Seeing us do this tonight is just another step," said Texas wide receiver Collin Johnson, whose diving 31-yard touchdown catch gave Texas the lead in the second half. "We could be a special team. I love these guys."
