It’s been over two calendar years since Kansas football won a Big 12 conference game. What better way to get that first dub, than to do it in a historic manner.
On Saturday at Memorial Stadium in Lawrence, the Jayhawks defeated Texas in overtime 24-21.
Yes, you read that correctly, KU beat Texas.
Kansas snapped its 19-game conference losing streak by beating a team it hasn’t been victorious over since 1938.
This was supposed to be an easy road win for the Longhorns, who were a 23-point favorite coming into the day.
Texas head coach, Charlie Strong should probably start packing his bags.
His future with the Longhorns was already on the line, but this loss probably put the nail in the coffin.
With the loss at Kansas, Strong now has a 16-20 conference record, the worst winning percentage in school history. Texas hasn’t won over six games during a season with strong and missed a bowl game last season.
Don’t feel too bad for Strong. According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, if Strong is fired he will get a $10 million buyout.
If Strong makes it through this weekend, he’ll try to lead his Longhorn team to a victory over TCU on Friday.
