Never has there been a Texas team that needed to play Kansas, a squad that can’t get out of its own way long enough to find a way to win, more than the 2015 Longhorns, a team that struggled to three victories in their first eight games and has looked more sick than solid.

If getting well with a rout over the Jayhawks was the prescription the 'Horns needed, they need to be shaking their doctor’s hand after their 59-20 victory over hapless Kansas before a crowd of 92,529 on a chilly evening at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium.
