The Longhorns will be watching the Big12 championship game this year. Even though they won as many games as OU, played a tougher conference schedule, and beat OU head to head. They were ranked below OU in most of the computer polls because they played such a weak nonconference schedule. You know your schedule is weak when Rice is the toughest game. Texas chose to play UTEP, Arkansas Rice and Florida Atlantic. OK, Arkansas was supposed to be better, they're an SEC team after all, but they weren't. The moral is, if you are going to play two owls in the same year, you have to win all your games.
