Honestly, I just wanted to see what this game looked like on paper. I obviously don't have LHN, so I didn't get to watch it, but following it was strange. Texas is up 14, ISU's up 7, UT's up, tied, up, tied, up.

In the end, I guess this looked like a game between the No. 63 and No. 66 teams in the country -- even, back-and-forth, won by the home team.
