This triumph not only served as sweet redemption for last year's upset by Texas Tech but also solidified the Longhorns' dominance on the field.
The top of the UT Tower shined with burnt orange lights Friday, November 24 to celebrate Texas Football’s victory over Texas Tech.
Having acquired two #1 jerseys with “Worthy” on the back for Hudson and Beckett at the beginning of the season, it turned out to be a timely investment, in light of the team's recent triumph. The crowd always chants “Go Worthy” because of the performance of Xavier Worthy, the third-year wide receiver who moves with lightning-like speed throughout every game.
The pre-game festivities buzzed with excitement my granddaughters, Hailey, Maggie, and their cousins Hudson and Beckett. The anticipation and energy leading up to the game set the stage for what turned out to be game to be remembered!
Unsurprisingly, the Longhorns asserted their dominance over the Red Raiders, securing a coveted spot as the No. 7 team and earning a berth in the Big Twelve Championship.

As we savor this victory, it's important to acknowledge the significance of this game in the broader context of the Longhorns' journey. This win signifies more than just a triumph over a conference rival; it marks the end of an era as Texas bids farewell to the Big 12 and prepares to join the SEC in the 2024 season. The annual series with the Red Raiders, spanning 64 consecutive years, concluded with this memorable victory.
