The Super Bowl wasn’t the only big game that happened this weekend. In a stunning afternoon match-up, the No. 25 Longhorns defeated the No. 6 Kansas Jayhawks, 81-69, on Saturday for their sixth consecutive victory—four of which have been over top 25 teams.
For his performance, which included a game-high 23 points, freshman point guard Isaiah Taylor was named the Phillips 66 Big 12 Conference Rookie of the Week.
With a 6-2 conference record, the Horns now hold second place in the Big 12 behind the Jayhawks, who are 7-1. Next, Texas will face TCU tomorrow night at 7 p.m. in Fort Worth. Catch the game on the Big 12 Network.
