The Longhorns did not cover the 5.5-point spread on the road, and the 42 points scored were UNDER the posted total of 47.

Colt McCoy led the way for Texas by going 25-for-40 for 222 yards and two touchdowns, while Limas Sweed made eight catches for 120 yards and a score for the Longhorns.

Zac Taylor went 15-for-28 for 274 yards, two scores, and a interception, and Terrence Nunn had five receptions for 80 yards for the Cornhuskers.
