The Longhorns outgained in time of possession by nearly 20 minutes and total yards by more than 400 but settled for four field goal tries and missed two. That gave the Jayhawks plenty of chances to march toward another memorable upset at Darrell K Royal-Texas Stadium. But playing unexpectedly without its ...
