  Suddenly, Texas has just a week left in a stunningly bad season under first-year coach Steve Sarkisian. West Virginia will get one more chance to avoid joining the Longhorns in ending the year in late November. Jared Doege threw three touchdown passes and Leddie Brown rushed for 158 yards and a score to lead West Virginia to a 31-23 victory over Texas on Saturday, handing the Longhorns their sixth straight loss and eliminating them from bowl consideration. West Virginia (5-6, 3-5 Big 12) snapped a two-game losing streak and kept its own postseason hopes alive but needs to win its final game next weekend. "It gets us to five," West Virginia coach Neal Brown said. "It keeps us alive for another week." Texas (4-7, 2-6) couldn't overcome another double-digit deficit. The Longhorns will finish with a losing record and miss a bowl for the first time since 2016.

The losing streak for Texas is its longest since it dropped eight in a row in 1956. "We just haven't broken through yet, and that's the biggest frustrating part," Sarkisian said. "Every game, it seems like there is a different story to tell of why it didn't happen. I hate it for the guys because they bring it every day." Texas never led but had two chances to potentially tie the score in the final three minutes. The Longhorns drove to the West Virginia 30. But on fourth down, Casey Thompson was intercepted by Sean Mahone at the 6. West Virginia then drove to the Texas 36. The Mountaineers went for it on fourth down rather than attempt a long field goal, but Doege threw incomplete into the end zone and Texas got one last chance with 36 seconds left. The Longhorns couldn't get past midfield and Hudson Card's fourth-down pass fell incomplete. Texas was outgained 459 yards to 355, but it was the big play that kept the Longhorns in range. - West Virginia/AP College Football
