Tigers trampled in Texas

A pile of Texas players spill into the end zone on a first half touchdown by Longhorns running back Chris Ogbonnaya on Oct. 18 in Austin, Texas.

One team played like the No. 1 team in the country, and the other looked lucky to ever be named No. 11. One quarterback brought more Heisman cred to his name. The other was completely shut down and disheartened in Texas.
