A win that was much-needed on the road for head coach Steve Sarkisian and No. 24 ranked Texas football saw this team get the monkey off its back in terms of winning road games against respectable Big 12 opponents. Texas got the close win over head coach Chris Klieman and the No. 13 ranked Kansas State Wildcats on the road at Bill Snyder Family Stadium in Manhattan on Nov. 5.

For only the second time in the last two seasons, Sark and the Longhorns were able to beat a team in a true road game. And it seems like the magic formula on the road for Sark and the Longhorns is to play a purple team out of the Big 12.

Last season, Texas beat the TCU Horned Frogs in Fort Worth for the lone road victory of the season. And so far this season, the lone road win for the Longhorns came over Kansas State in Week 10.

This win arrived for the Longhorns due to a big-time play on the final offensive possession for Kansas State. Senior nose tackle Keondre Coburn forced a fumble from senior Kansas State quarterback Adrian Martinez. Junior linebacker Jaylan Ford was able to fall on the fumble a few yards down the field to seal the win for the Longhorns.

After a snap in victory formation for the Longhorns, Sark was able to officially reel in his second road win as the Texas head coach. And Texas was able to get bowl eligible for the first time under Sark.

Coburn and the entire Texas interior defensive line were doing work all game long. It paid off in a big way late with this forced fumble.

This really says it all for a lot of the second-half play-calling for Sark on the road in the last two seasons.
