Texas faces familiar challenge
For the third straight year the Longhorns have rebounded from a midseason loss to Oklahoma to find themselves alive in the BCS and national title picture entering the second full week of November. Two years ago they self-destructed against Colorado. Last year they melted down against Texas Tech.
"We were talking about the BCS and national championships last year when we went to Tech," Coach Mack Brown said. "We ought to understand that stuff. You get what you deserve at the end. Right now it's just barbershop talk. There were four teams in the top 10 that probably talked about it some last week."
