The Texas bench can finally celebrate their hard fought 28-24 victory over the No. 8 ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys after a hail mary pass was broken up in the end zone by their defense on the last play of the game. Texas, ranked No. 1 and still unbeaten, travels to Lubbock to face their fourth top 10 ranked opponent in a row against the Texas Tech Red Raiders. 

Texas’ Jordan Shipley hauls in this pass for a touchdown over Oklahoma State’s Ricky Price for Texas’ first score of the game in the first quarter. Jordan led all receivers with 15 catches.

Texas’ Quan Cosby hauls in this pass for a touchdown over Oklahoma State’s Jacob Lacey for Texas’ third score of the game in the second quarter, catching it on his back.

Texas’ Rashad Bobino, right, celebrates with Ben Wells after the Texas defense stopped the Cowboys on fourth down in the fourth quarter, giving their offense one last chance to run out the clock before leaving less than one minute for the Cowboys to score.

Texas players Aaron Lewis, carrying on the tradition of flag bearers for every game since 9/11, holds the American flag as teammate Ryan Bailey leans on his shoulder as they pray prior to the game.

This tattooed Texas fan shows his support for the team from the stands.

  1. The picture of Cosby’s touchdown catch is brilliant, the best of the game. Bad crop in the newspaper?
