AUSTIN (KXAN) — A win is a win, and that old sports cliche certainly rang through the Texas Longhorns locker room on Saturday.
The No. 7 Longhorns outlasted No. 23 Kansas State 33-30 in overtime to stay in the hunt for a Big 12 Conference championship game berth, but did it the hard way after squandering a 20-point lead in the second half.

Texas built a 27-7 lead following a Bert Auburn 49-yard field goal in the third quarter, but then things fell apart from there with three Kansas State touchdowns in about a 3-minute span to tie the game. Auburn hit a 42-yard kick in overtime, and then the Longhorns kept the Wildcats out of the end zone to escape their own home with the win.
