AUSTIN, Texas — The University of Texas football team is not in the moral victories business. It’s in the business of winning games and being a major player in the college football landscape. The Longhorns didn’t win last Saturday against 11th-ranked West Virginia, but they did take a step forward that could pay dividends in the final two regular-season game and beyond.

Now it’s up to the Longhorns to continue to improve and make sure the lessons learned are worth the price they’ve paid. The first part of that equation is taking care of things this Saturday when Texas travels to hapless Kansas in a game that’s the closest thing to low-hanging fruit the Longhorns have had all season.
