The Horns Illustrated Week in Review covers all the University of Texas sporting events that took place this past week

 

Did you miss anything ‎Texas Longhorns related from the past 7 days? Don't worry, we will bring you up to speed.

 

Football

The Texas Longhorn Football team fell to Ole Miss 44-23 on Saturday in Darrell Royal Texas Memorial Stadium. Ole Miss senior running back Jeff Scott set a career high in rushing with 164 yards. Scott scored a 5-yard touchdown in the first quarter and returned a punt 73 yards in the third quarter.

The Texas offense was without junior quarterback David Ash and running back Daje Johnson. Senior quarterback Case McCoy started in Ash's place and played well enough to give the Longhorns a 23-17 lead heading into halftime.

The Ole Miss Rebels scored 30 unanswered points in the second half and handled the Longhorns their second non-conference loss of the season.

Mack Brown and Texas players have now put their focus on winning the Big 12 championship. To do that, the Longhorns will have to beat a Kansas State Wildcats team in Austin on Saturday that has beaten them five years in a row.
