A little bit of the unexpected brought the No. 23 Texas Longhorns (7-2, 4-2) to their seventh win of the season by way of a 31-22 battle in Lubbock.
The Longhorns topped the No. 18 Texas Tech Red Raiders (6-3, 3-3) with a strong offensive showing that had Mike Davis explode for a career high. But it was the Horns defense that kept a potent Tech offense under wraps.
A much prettier showing this time around, Texas was able to utilize some timely plays to beat Texas Tech in a way in which no other team has done this season.
With plenty of positives moving forward, here are 10 things we learned from the Horns' win in Lubbock.
