AUSTIN (KXAN) — Texas moved above .500 for the first time in the 2017 season with a 40-34 win over Kansas State in double overtime.
It wasn’t close to a clinic on how to play defense. Texas totaled 546 yards of total offense and Kansas State had 394 yards.
Freshman quarterback Sam Ehlinger produced 487 total yards which is the third-most in Texas football history.
The Longhorns needed a Josh Rowland field goal for the 27-27 tie with 1:20 remaining in the fourth quarter. He had a chance to win it in the final seconds but missed a 45-yard field goal.
The win gave Texas some solid momentum going into the showdown in Dallas against OU, starting 2-0 in the Big 12 for the first time since 2013.
