Bill Snyder explained today the words of encouragement he shared with Texas coach Charlie Strong after Kansas State beat Texas 24-21 on Saturday. Snyder said he likes Strong and the job that he's doing to rebuild the Longhorns. He recognizes, though, that Strong is embattled as he tries to avoid a third straight losing season. "I think college football has gotten out of hand," said Snyder, the longtime KSU coach, "and it's no longer about young people."

Big 12 expansion candidates 'disappointed'

Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby says expansion candidates were disappointed by league's decision to remain at 10 members.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Kansas State's win was its fifth in a row at home against Texas. That is tied for the all-time longest home winning streak for any team against Texas (Texas A&M from 1985 to 1993).

Charlie Strong disappeared into this crowd after Texas fell to 3-4 with a 24-21 loss at Kansas State, UT's fifth consecutive defeat in Manhattan. The Longhorns failed to capitalize on three K-State turnovers in the second half.

Touchdown Texas with 46 seconds to play. It sure could have used that field goal on the previous possession. The Longhorns, down 24-21, will need to get the onside kick, obviously.

A total mess for Texas in the red zone. Given an opportunity, the Longhorns made way too many mistakes, capped by a botched field-goal attempt. K-State holds on to its 10-point lead with four minutes to play.


Texas backup QB rushes for score

Tyrone Swoopes takes it himself for an 8-yard TD. At the start of the fourth quarter, Kansas State leads Texas 24-14 on ESPN2.

Touchdown, Texas, on the 8-yard Tyrone Swoopes keeper in the final minute of the third quarter. His touches today have been limited -- along with the rest of the Texas offense. Perhaps too little, too late for the Longhorns but if UT gets the ball back still down 24-14, it would be well served to use Swoopes in a bigger role.

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

Now a three-score deficit for Texas at Kansas State, 24-7 after the Wildcats atoned for their lone red-zone mishap of the season by stopping the Longhorns on fourth down and driving for a 35-yard field goal by Matthew McCrane. There's not much hope at this point for Texas -- in this game and potentially this season (and the Charlie Strong era) if UT can't generate a lot more energy in a hurry with Baylor up next in Austin.


Texas forces fumble near goal line

Kansas State's Charles Jones fumbles before reaching the end zone and Texas recovers for a touchback. The Longhorns trail 21-7 in the third quarter on ESPN2.

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

Texas opened the third quarter with possession, badly in need of something good to happen -- and showed little creativity in handing twice to D'Onta Foreman, who got 4 yards before a broken-play scramble by Buechele came up short. Hard to believe that's what the Longhorns devised in the locker room at halftime. They seem out of ideas.

K-State extends lead before halftime

Jesse Ertz throws a strike to Byron Pringle for an 8-yard TD with nine seconds left before halftime. Kansas State leads Texas 21-7.

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

Deflating drive for Texas, which had life after Duvernay's touchdown, then allowed K-State's very mediocre offense to go 75 yards in nine plays and score on Jesse Ertz's 8-yard strike to Byron Pringle. The Wildcats have accumulated 244 yards. (They average 342 this season.) K-State leads 21-7 at halftime.

Texas on the board with 80-yard TD pass

Shane Buechele goes deep down the sideline to Devin Duvernay for an 80-yard TD. Kansas State leads 14-7 on ESPNU.
