Kansas Walks Past Texas

Hits: 0

A walk-on full back by the name of Jared Casey caught a two-point conversion in over-time to seal the victory for the Jayhawks over the Longhorns in Austin.

The loss comes with baggage for Texas, as they went into the game touted as a 31 point favorite.  Kansas had never won a game in Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium, until yesterday.

Both Big 12 teams are considered to be rebuilding, and from the naked eye it’d be easy to assume Kansas’ reconstruction is the more challenging situation.  However, with the loss, Texas is now in the middle of their longest losing streak since 1956.

Head Coach Steve Sarkisian has a lot of heavy lifting to do in order to bring the burnt orange out of the ashes, to potentially rise again.
