Turnovers, turnovers, turnovers.
Yes, that word and that one word alone is what cost the Texas Longhorns a bitter-tasting defeat in Austin—dropping a pathetically played 34-12 loss to the UCLA Bruins.
This UT loss may actually be the biggest disappointment of the season, though its tough to say so with 75 percent of the games still remaining.
Regardless, the Horns loss to the Bruins on Saturday was nothing short of pathetic.
And I can guarantee you that Mack Brown wasn’t a happy camper in the burnt orange locker room after Saturday’s Texas meltdown.
Bringing back awful memories from the Horns' 1997 66-3 loss to UCLA, the Bruins made sure those flashbacks came flooding back in Austin with a vengeance on Saturday at Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium.
This time around may have hurt even more, as the former-No. 7 Longhorns were walloped by a UCLA football team intent on pulling the upset.
By the time all was said and done, the Bruins walked from the field on Saturday afternoon with a 34-12 blowout victory over the Texas Longhorns.
With the loss, the Horns drop to 3-1 overall while being booted from the top 20 teams in the latest polls.
Does this one hurt, Horns fans?
You bet it does…
