Just like it was 2005 the University of Texas and University of Southern Cal put on a game for the ages.
Unfortunately for my fandom the Texas Longhorns came out on the wrong side of the game falling 27-24 in Double OT.
The game was primarily a defensive struggle throughout as both teams were held to under 20 points until completion of the first OT.
The Texas defense kept them in the game as a lackluster offense couldn’t muster up anything until the last drive of regulation, which put
Texas ahead for the first time with 45 seconds left.
The Texas lead didn’t last long as NFL prospect Sam Daronald led USC into field goal position to tie the game at 17-17 all as time expired.
Texas and USC traded TDs in the first OT forcing a second OT with Texas receiving the ball first.
Texas marched to the 2 yard line in position to take the lead until Freshman QB Sam Ehlinger was stripped of the football with USC recovering.
USC then lined up for a converted on a 43 yard FG to win the game.
Texas falls to 1-2 on the season, but showed promise at least on the defensive end as they held the number 4 ranked team in the nation to just 17 points.
It’s evident the Texas and Coach Tom Herman are still going through growing pains, hopefully this game could be used as a spring board of maturation for the young teams.
