The Trib: No letdown likely for Longhorns
The Red River Rivalry may be the most emotional and physically challenging game they play every season, but the Longhorns have avoided the post-big-game letdown that hits other teams. Texas hasn’t lost the week after the Oklahoma game since 1997, former Coach John Mackovic’s last season in Austin.
"Beating Oklahoma doesn’t get you three wins. It’s just one. Each game gets bigger from here," defensive tackle Sam Acho said. "We know that."

Austin American-Statesman (Kirk Bohls): Longhorns defense has become the ultimate closers
The Texas defense has occasionally allowed a first-possession scoring drive, as it did against Oklahoma, or a touchdown on the opening series, as it did against Colorado before clamping down. But it has quickly adjusted and played hard the rest of the game all season long.
In fact, Saturday's effort should qualify as the best defensive performance by a Will Muschamp unit since his arrival 19 games ago.
Consider that the Longhorns have outscored their opponents 131-45 in the second half this season.

Smart Football: Explanation and cut-ups of the "Power O" run play
Having now seen this same play from a wide variety of sets and offenses, note how the "power O" from pro-style, traditional sets has more in common than it does differences with the play run from spread and wildcat sets. Can’t we all just get along?
