(KXAN/AP) — The Longhorns dropped several spots in the latest polls and LSU moved into the top five following Saturday’s prime time result in Austin.
A true Big 12 game broke out at Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium with LSU posting 571 yards against the Longhorns defense in a 45-38 win over the Longhorns.
Texas dropped to No. 12 in the AP poll and No. 13 in the Amway Coaches poll. LSU jumped ahead of Oklahoma to No. 4 in the AP poll and No. 5 in the Amway Coaches poll.
The Longhorns defense couldn’t get enough pressure on LSU quarterback Joe Burrow, and couldn’t cover LSU’s receivers when they dropped back in coverage. Burrow threw for 471 yards and four touchdowns.
Quarterback Sam Ehlinger notched his best game at Texas with a career-high 401 passing yards, but the Longhorns defense couldn’t get off the field for most of the second half.
