Texas Dominates Texas Tech, Secures Place in Big 12 Championship Game

Longhorns' Dominance Unleashed

Throughout the season, Coach Steve Sarkisian consistently emphasized to his players the importance of embracing the weight of being the team to beat. This rallying cry was especially poignant as it marked their final Big 12 season before transitioning to the SEC next year. Sarkisian's leadership became crucial, guiding the team not only through on-field challenges but also the anticipation and pressure associated with the impending conference shift.

Friday night witnessed a spectacular farewell party at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium, with the Longhorns (11-1, 8-1 in conference) securing a spot in the Big 12 championship game by dominating Texas Tech 57-7—a sweet redemption after last year's defeat in Lubbock.

The 7th-ranked Longhorns showcased an imposing defensive display, limiting Texas Tech to a mere 198 total yards. The game was marked by fortuitous bounces, exemplified by linebacker Jett Bush's 43-yard touchdown return after the ball ricocheted off Red Raiders running back Tahj Brooks' foot.

Sarkisian, when asked about the significance of Friday night's victory, humbly stated, "I don't know from a College Football Playoff perspective what that looks like."

The Longhorns' dominant win on Friday secured their spot in the Big 12 title game, marking their first appearance since 2018. With 11 wins for the first time since 2009, Coach Sarkisian expressed relief, stating, "Finally, we've reached a point where we're not all biting our nails until the end." Looking ahead to the championship, he emphasized the need for a strong performance. Despite areas to improve, the team is celebrating one of their best games this year.
