The Texas Longhorns earned an impressive victory over No. 6 ranked Oklahoma State on Saturday. It marked the first time Texas earned a road victory over a squad ranked in the top ten in the last decade.
“This was not pretty,” Texas coach Tom Herman said of his team’s 41-34 overtime victory.
“But when you take the ball away four times and you don’t turn it over at all, you give yourself a chance to win.”
Herman didn’t stop there, though.
“A lot of resiliency shown by every member of this team,” he continued.
“We feel like we’re never out of game. We haven’t been out of a game. We lost one by two points with an opportunity with the ball on the 1-yard line, and we lost a four-overtime thriller to our archrivals.
“We’re a lot different team than we were back then too. … We are a work in progress.”
Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy took ownership of his squad’s loss.
“Disciplined football, special teams and turnovers is what determines the outcome of games ’til you get to the latter part of the season,” he said.
“And we failed in those areas today, and then this is the result you’ll get.”
Next up for Texas will be a showdown against West Virginia on Nov. 7.
Oklahoma State, meanwhile, will next face off against No. 16 ranked Kansas State.
