AUSTIN, Texas -- Facing its weakest conference opponent, this was supposed to be the week Texas' weak red zone offense began to turn the corner.

After two drives, that's exactly what it appeared the Longhorns were on their way to doing. Both drives made stops inside the 20-yard line before finishing in the end zone. It was the first time Texas had scored touchdowns on its first two drives since it did so against Missouri in 2009.
