The Texas Longhorns (5-2, 3-1) survived a massive scare at home on Saturday night, but held on to defeat the Kansas Jayhawks (2-5, 0-4) 50-48.  It was a sloppy night for the Texas defense, as they allowed Kansas to rack up 593 yards of total offense. The Jayhawks took the lead on a 2-point conversion with 1:11 left in the game, but Cameron Dicker kicked a 33 yard field goal as time expired to propel the Longhorns to a win.

Kansas running back Pooka Williams rushed for 196 yards in the loss, while quarterback Carter Stanley threw for 310 yards and four touchdowns.

Sam Ehlinger threw for 399 yards and four touchdown passes and had one interception.  Devin Duvernay led the Longhorns in receiving with 110 yards and two touchdowns. Both Ehlinger and Keaontay Ingram surpassed the 100-yard rushing mark in the win.

The Longhorns will head to Fort Worth to take on the TCU Horned Frogs next Saturday.
