On Saturday afternoon, the TCU Horned Frogs hosted the Texas Longhorns in a battle of Big 12 opponents.

Vegas sports books shocked the college football nation earlier this week when they announced the line for today's game. The books had Texas as a one-point favorite, despite being the No. 15 team in the nation.

There's a reason Vegas rarely loses.

The Horned Frogs used a stout defensive effort to hand Texas its third loss of the season. TCU forced Longhorns star quarterback Sam Ehlinger to do something he rarely does - turn the ball over.

He threw four interceptions on the day en route to TCU's 37-27 win over the Longhorns.

After the game, TCU's athletic department had a message for the Longhorns. The team used a video of Matthew McConaughey reacting to the team's loss to LSU earlier this season to taunt Texas.

Check it out.

That's not very nice.

With the win, TCU moves to 4-3 on the season, while Texas falls to 5-3 on the year.

Next up for the Horned Frogs is a trip to Oklahoma State to take on the Cowboys. Texas hosts a Kansas State team that just took down Oklahoma in yet another big 12 upset.

Stay tuned for the latest.
