Texas Longhorns Football 2006 Game 8 Highlights - Nebraska Cornhuskers

The Longhorns went to Lincoln, Nebraska for the third time since joining the Big 12. The first two games were nail-biting wins for the Horns and except for the snow, this one was no different.
The Texas defense has been banged up all year, but it turns out the bench is deep. Half full of freshman and back-ups, the defense dominated the Huskers and helped deliver another big win on the road.
Still, it predictably came down to kicking and turnovers. The wet ball led to seven fumbles with Texas recovering six of them (especially good since five of them were by Longhorns.) And hobbled starter Gregg Johnson missed two field goals and an extra-point before his injury forced him to the sideline. So the the game-winning kick was left to a walk-on with no previous game experience. In the final seconds of the game. In Lincoln.

Hook 'em.

Oh yeah, and Vince was there.

Texas - 22
Nebraska - 20
