It’s been a huge week for Texas Longhorns athletics. Usually, that’s a sign of football success in November, but the basketball team got a lot of the shine this week.
For the fourth time in school history, the Texas basketball team posted a victory over a No. 2 team in the AP poll. Not to be outdone, Sarkisian’s squad swept the field with Kansas to end the week.
Despite the return of one-time Heisman hopeful quarterback Jalon Daniels, the Jayhawks’ offense was missing in action Saturday. A 14-yard touchdown pass from Daniels to Torry Locklin gave Kansas its first points of the game with 1:55 left in the third quarter.
Bijan Robinson was the story for Texas. The quarterback rushed for 243 yards and four touchdowns on 25 carries.
Let’s look at what Twitter users took away from Texas’ funeral of Kansas.
Finding their rhythm
Texas has 10 offensive points in the second half today. That’s more than the last three games combined.

Kansas has the culture OU talks about having
Kansas is still fighting harder than OU did

Apparently we decided to let go… not even mad.

Time to let off the gas
In the spirit of sportsmanship, Texas needs to start throwing the ball.

Keeping it simple
Ideal play-call on third and 9?
Give it to Bijan.

High percentage throws
Kwiatkowski has built up his defense
Feels like 2005
Where has Bijan’s touch been?
How on earth did we give that guy 12 touches in our biggest game of the season 😭

Not many deep shots today. Assume the message was received.
