Gameday Buzz From Texas vs. West Virginia

Gameday Buzz From West Virginia

Before Saturday night, the only time the Longhorn football team was forced to play beyond regulation in school history was in 1996, before head coach Mack Brown even came to Texas. In the Brown Era, Texas is known for pulling off stellar finishes with only seconds on the clock (see National Championship 2006, Nebraska 2009, and Texas A&M 2011). But in an almost unheard-of overtime performance, Texas beat West Virginia 47-40 on the road this weekend.

Morgantown, West Virginia may be nearly 1,400 miles from Austin, but Texas fans still filled most of an end zone at Milan Puskar Stadium to watch the Longhorns come away with the victory.

Even far away from home, Texas managed to hammer out the win on a 2-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Case McCoy and a fourth down end zone interception by junior linebacker Steve Edmond.

Here’s a look at the social media buzz during the game and from Longhorns who were lucky enough to witness the action in Morgantown.

    Do you even realize that West Virginia has and did have a losing record at the time of the game? This clearly shows that Texas isn’t nationally competitive. Unfortunately Texas fans will have to settle for more of Mack Brown.

  15. Great win but, those injuries on the Achilles may never completely heel. We may not know until next season, at the earliest. Maybe Okla. St. and Baylor will keep us busy.
