The third loss of the season, and the second on the road, was dealt to head coach Steve Sarkisian and No. 20 ranked Texas football in a hard-fought game in Stillwater against head coach Mike Gundy and the No. 11 ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys. Texas ultimately fell short to Oklahoma State by the final score of 41-34.

This was another devastating second-half collapse for the Longhorns under Sark. Texas now boasts a record of 1-6 on the road under Sark, and has lost five games in the Big 12 when up by double digits in the second half. The solid team we thought we saw on the field for the last few weeks led by redshirt freshman quarterback Quinn Ewers disappeared down the stretch this weekend.

Communication was an issue throughout much of this game for the Longhorns. Ewers wasn’t on the same page with his receivers throughout the game. And the defense struggled to pick up the pace.

But that’s just the beginning of the issues that Texas faced in this loss to the Pokes. Texas was getting destroyed with penalties in this one, getting flagged more than a dozen times for more than 110 yards. Meanwhile, Oklahoma State somehow avoided any flag on the day.

That was just part of the issue, though.

Texas’ biggest issue was clearly the inability to close this one out. Texas had momentum in the second half. But Ewers and this Texas offense couldn’t get much of anything going in the second half.

Here’s a look at the fan and social media reaction to Texas’ seven-point loss to Oklahoma State on Oct. 22.

I fully disagree with anyone saying that Sark should’ve trotted out junior quarterback Hudson Card in place of Ewers in the second half.

The quarterback talk is definitely going to continue throughout the bye week.

This was a decisive call and I don’t believe this should be a flag.

So very true.
