Kansas shocks Texas again as Longhorns drop five straight games for first time since 1956

Just 10 games into the Steve Sarkisian era at Texas, the Longhorns matched a historic low on Saturday night with a 57-56 loss to Kansas in overtime. It was Texas’ fifth straight loss, marking the first time the Longhorns have dropped five straight since … 1956! Kansas, meanwhile, picked up its first Big 12 road win since 2008. 

The last time Texas lost five straight games in 1956, Dwight D. Eisenhower was president, “The Ten Commandments” was the biggest movie in the world and the Longhorns’ lone win of the season was on the road against Tulane — an SEC program at the time. The last time Texas lost to Kansas in football was 2016, and coach Charlie Strong was fired at the end of that season. 

Kansas scored 21 unanswered points during an 85-second flurry at the end of the first half thanks to a fumble and pick-six from freshman quarterback Hudson Card, one of two quarterbacks that the Longhorns used against the Jayhawks.

Texas came back from a 49-35 fourth quarter deficit to tie the game and force overtime thanks to some heroics from quarterback Casey Thompson. The upperclassman threw a touchdown to Cade Brewer with 22 seconds left to force overtime and completed an 8-yard pass to Marcus Washington in the first overtime. However, Kansas quarterback Jadon Daniels made an unbelievable play on a two-point conversion to clinch the win. 

Daniels was brilliant in his first start of 2021 for the Jayhawks, throwing for 202 yards and three touchdowns in the win. Running back Devin Neal rushed for 143 yards and three touchdowns of his own to keep pace with the Longhorns. Texas quarterbacks Thompson and Card combined for four turnovers. 

By the end of the fourth quarter, Kansas fans were chanting “S-E-C” at the Longhorns, which was loud enough to be heard on the broadcast. 

The loss is just the latest low of Sarkisian’s miserable first season on the 40 Acres. The troubles started as Texas coughed up a 21-point lead against Oklahoma, the biggest blown deficit in the history of the Red River Showdown. The Longhorns would go on to blow double-digit second-half leads in each of their next two games against No. 10 Oklahoma State and No. 13 Baylor. This week, starting receiver Joshua Moore opted to leave the team and enter the transfer portal, and a secret video of Texas assistant Bo Davis ranting at players on the team bus following the Baylor loss went viral. 

Kansas moves to 2-8 after winning its first FBS game of the season. The Jayhawks’ only other win was against FCS South Dakota. Texas moves to 4-6 and has to win on the road against West Virginia and at home against Kansas State just to make a bowl game.

Aaron Judge home run ball: Blue Jays bullpen makes sure Yankees secure historic HR No. 61

Published

on


USATSI

Aaron Judge belted his 61st home run of the season Wednesday against the Blue Jays, tying Roger Maris’ American League and Yankees single-season records. The historic ball reportedly would’ve been worth up to $2 million had it landed into the hands of a lucky fan. But on this chilly night in Toronto, the fan wasn’t so lucky. 

When Judge took lefty Tim Mayza deep in the seventh inning for dinger No. 61, the ball traveled painfully close to a Blue Jays fan who couldn’t corral it from his outfield seat. Here’s a look at a moment he won’t soon forget: 

Seeing Judge make history clearly didn’t mean as much to the fan as owning a piece of it, as he was caught on camera sulking and slamming his cap out of frustration moments after the ball left his sight.

Thankfully for Judge and the Yankees, the ball ricocheted into the hands of Blue Jays bullpen coach Matt Buschmann. Buschmann and the Jays bullpen, specifically closer Jordan Romano, then made sure the ball got to Yankees personnel. 

“From what I heard from our bullpen guys, Romano was the guy that kind of handed it over,” Judge told reporters. “Getting that type of support and a classy move from him, who’s one of the best in the game, definitely means a lot. I’ve got to try to find him here and thank him for that, that’s for sure.”

After the game, Judge and his mother, Patty Judge, posed for a photo with the record-breaking ball.

With home run No. 61 out the way, Judge needs only one more over his team’s final seven games to take sole control of the Yankees and AL single-season records. He’s unlikely to match or exceed the MLB record of 73 home runs that Barry Bonds hit for the Giants in 2001. 

It’s been quite the two-game stretch for Judge. On Tuesday, his Yankees clinched the AL East with a 5-2 win over the Blue Jays. He then matched Maris’ 61 home runs the following day. If the saying “all good things come in threes” is true, perhaps we can expect Judge’s 62nd homer Friday against the Orioles at Yankee Stadium.

2022 Sanderson Farms Championship: Live stream, watch online, TV schedule, channel, tee times, coverage, radio

Published

on



Fresh off an electric Presidents Cup at Quail Hollow Club, the PGA Tour returns to Jackson, Mississippi, for the 2022 Sanderson Farms Championship. Defending champion and Presidents Cup participant Sam Burns headlines the field as he looks to get his 2022-23 campaign off on the right foot after notching three victories a season ago.

Christiaan Bezuidenhout, a member of the international team, will also make the short trip from Charlotte to Jackson. The South African should be brimming with confidence as he searches for his first victory on the PGA Tour after garnering a 1-0-1 record at the Presidents Cup. The Country Club of Jackson, which has been kind to first-time winners in recent history, could be an ideal landing spot. Six of the last eight champions at the Sanderson Farms Championship have been first timers, with Sebastian Munoz being the last in 2019. 

This is welcomed news not only for Bezuidenhout, but also for the stable of recent Korn Ferry Tour graduates looking to make a splash on the PGA Tour. Taylor Montgomery, Davis Thompson and Ben An are coming off of top-10 finishes at the 2022 Foritnet Championship and primed to improve on their efforts in Napa.
