Texas Longhorns Big 12 Championship

In a decisive victory, the Texas Longhorns, ranked seventh nationally, trounced Texas Tech 57-7 on Friday, clinching their spot in the Big 12 championship game. Keilan Robinson was a standout, returning a kickoff for 95 yards and scoring twice, while Bert Auburn’s five successful field goals contributed to the team’s overwhelming performance.

Texas, set to join the Southeastern Conference post-season, now holds an impressive 11-1 record (8-1 in conference), having won six consecutive games since their defeat to Oklahoma. They eagerly await their championship game opponent, set for Dec. 2 in Arlington.

In stark contrast, Texas Tech (6-6, 5-4) struggled offensively, managing only 198 yards against Texas’ staggering 528. Despite a season record of 5-0 in games he started and completed, Tech’s quarterback Behren Morton was under constant pressure from Texas’ defense, completing just 19 of 36 passes for a mere 88 yards and succumbing to three interceptions.

Quinn Ewers, quarterback for Texas, threw for 196 yards and a touchdown, with a 17-of-26 completion rate and one interception.

Tahj Brooks of Texas Tech, previously third in the nation for rushing yards per game, was held to 95 yards over 19 carries.

An initial glimpse of competitiveness from Texas Tech, trailing 10-0, included a 55-yard kickoff return by Drae McCray and a touchdown run by Morton. However, Texas quickly regained control with Jaydon Blue’s 69-yard touchdown run, part of his 121 yards gained on 10 carries.

The game’s momentum firmly favored Texas, with Auburn setting a school record and later adding a career-best 54-yard field goal. Jett Bush’s 43-yard interception return for a touchdown further solidified Texas’ dominance.

Key Highlights:

  • Texas Tech’s coach Joey McGuire’s previous remarks about Texas provided additional motivation for the Longhorns.
  • Texas celebrated the debut of freshman quarterback Arch Manning, who completed 2 of 5 passes for 30 yards.

Looking Ahead:

  • Texas Tech hopes for a bowl game invitation.
  • Texas prepares for the Big 12 championship game on Dec. 2.
