Texas wins way into Big 12 title game

The Texas Longhorns are headed to the Big 12 title game for the first time since 2009.

Their title trip was set up by a 24-17 triumph at Kansas this afternoon in Lawrence, Kan.

The Longhorns (9-3) will play the winner of the West Virginia-Oklahoma game next Saturday night at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

West Virginia claimed an earlier 42-41 triumph over the Longhorns in Austin on Nov. 3. The Mountaineers’ game-winning score game after Will Grier’s game-winning two-point conversion with 16 seconds left.

Texas defeated Oklahoma, 48-45, at the Cotton Bowl on Oct. 6.

A potential rematch would be the first time that the Longhorns and Sooners have played twice in the same season since 1903. They have met annually since 1929.
