Midway in the fourth quarter, the Texas Longhorns began a drive to cut into the Kansas State Wildcats lead. The Longhorns just pounded the football at the Wildcats defense and got help from a 55-yard run by Cody Johnson to get into scoring range. Texas' drive stalled out, but they were able to drill a field goal to cut the lead 17-13.
Kansas State got the ball back to try and increase their lead and kill some clock but KSU went on a quick three-and-out after quarterback Collin Klein was sacked for a 9-yard loss, forcing the ball back to Texas on a punt. Just like Kansas State however, Texas promptly did nothing on their drive as Case McCoy missed on three straight passes and then was sacked on fourth down to turn it over on downs.
Kansas State got the football back and killed the clock to hold on for the 17-13 win, massing only 121 yards of total offense.
