Texas came to Kansas State with dreams, however fleeting and unrealistic, of still somehow squeezing into a BCS bowl. And then the Longhorns lost by 18 points. So Texas will have to settle for the AT&T Cotton Bowl depending on how the computers shake out. Until the Longhorns find out their fate Sunday night, here are a few other things they can stew on.

THREE UP
Case McCoy: Wedged between interceptions, the quarterback did manage to do some good things. McCoy completed 17 straight passes at one point. Even when Kansas State came in the second half and took an immediate lead, McCoy led Texas right back down the field on a scoring drive. He finished 26-of-34 for 314 yards. His long pass of 70 yards was more of a flip pass to Daje Johnson. But he did show some touch and accuracy that had previously not been a part of his game.
