PREGAME

Texas limps back to Austin following a disappointing 38-35 loss to Oklahoma State, which essentially ends all hopes for the Longhorns to make the College Football Playoff.

But, the Longhorns still have a chance to compete for the Big 12 Conference title. Also, Texas' arguably toughest remaining game is against this week's opponent: West Virginia. The Mountaineers' quarterback, Will Grier, trots his way into Austin as a candidate for the Heisman trophy.

Meanwhile, Texas dropped in the rankings after the Oklahoma State loss, but the Longhorns remain undefeated at home this season with a 4-0 record.
