On Saturday afternoon, the Texas Longhorns suffered their second defeat of the season.
Texas faced off against a potent Oklahoma offense and held the Sooners under their season-average in points per game, but still couldn’t find a way to win.
In the end, Oklahoma kept its undefeated season alive with a 34-27 win at the Cotton Bowl.
After the game, Texas head coach Tom Herman had a brutally honest assessment of his program after the loss.
“We didn’t play well. We pressed. We have to figure out why. We have to get to the root of the issue so it doesn’t happen again,” Herman said via college football insider Brett McMurphy.

Herman can start by looking at the offensive line, which was manhandled by the Oklahoma defensive line and linebackers.
Star quarterback Sam Ehlinger was on the run for most of the day.
Ehlinger talked about the Sooners defense after the game. “They did a really good job swarming the football. They let them go make plays, let them be athletes and did a good job with that,” he said.
Texas now sits at 4-2 on the year. Meanwhile, Oklahoma moves to 6-0.
Next up for the Longhorns is a home game against Kansas.
