Texas defense needs quick fix ahead of No. 12 Oklahoma State
There were plenty of warning signs about the Texas defense, from big-play scores to the late-game touchdown drives, that had been overlooked in three consecutive wins. Then came a second-half meltdown against Oklahoma that was just too much to overcome in a 55-48 loss on Saturday. There is definitely a need for some urgency, however, if the No. 25 Longhorns (4-2, 2-1) plan to fight their way back into the Big 12 title game by season’s end.
