Seven weeks into the Steve Sarkisian era and the results have been mixed. Wins against Louisiana and TCU have brought hope, while the three losses make you think nothing has really changed.
Texas held a two-touchdown lead at one point but was never able to put Oklahoma State to bed. A fantastic second-half defensive performance from defensive coordinator Jim Knowles kept the Cowboys in the game, where the rushing game put it on ice.
The 32-24 loss puts Texas at a major disadvantage within the Big 12 race. Both the Oklahoma schools now have direct paths to Arlington. One would have to lose three games while the Longhorns win out.
Sarkisian faced the media after the game, giving updates and his thoughts about the loss. Injury status was given on LB DeMarvion Overshown, along with the head coaches’ opinion on the quarterback play.
