AUSTIN, Texas — There nothing easy about how the Texas football team will play out the string in a season of lost chances, bad breaks and disappointing results.

The Longhorns, with their loss Thanksgiving night to Texas Tech, will not play in a bowl game for the second time in the past six years. Texas ends the 2015 campaign Saturday at No. 12-ranked Baylor. The Bears have nothing to prove and little for which to play, but have plenty of reasons to show how much better they are, at 9-2, than the 4-7 Longhorns.

Remember all those times when
