Les Miles nearly pulled off his biggest win yet as the head coach of the Jayhawks, as Kansas nearly upset Texas on Saturday night. Despite an impressive performance from Carter Stanley, the Longhorns still managed to win the game.
Stanley picked apart the Texas defense, completing 27-of-47 pass attempts for 310 yards and four touchdowns. His ability to throw the ball down the field turned this game into a shootout.
With under two minutes remaining in the game, Stanley gave the Jayhawks the lead when he connected on a two-point conversion to Daylon Charlot.
Before the Jayhawks kicked off to the Longhorns, the cameras caught Stanley throwing the 'Horns Down' gesture to the crowd. He also blew a few kisses to the stands.
The 'Horns Down' taunt is a pretty controversial topic in the Big 12, yet it didn't seem to stop Stanley from taking a shot at the Longhorns though.

Stanley thought his team got the last laugh and would pull off the upset against Texas. However, Sam Ehlinger drove down the field and set up a game-winning field goal for Cameron Dicker.
Although it's a tough pill to swallow for Stanley and the Jayhawks, it's pretty evident that Miles has the program on the rise.
