The Texas Longhorns got screwed.
The college football world is stunned by a botched call during Saturday’s marquee matchup between Texas and Alabama.
The Longhorns’ defense had Alabama pinned against their own endzone during the third quarter. The pass rush got through and took down Bryce Young for what appeared to be a clear safety.
The go-ahead defensive score was negated by a horrible roughing the passer call. The call was later rescinded and replaced with targeting.
The Longhorns would go on to lose the game 20-19. That safety meant everything.
A 20.5-point underdog at home, the Texas Longhorns had a chance to get back on the national radar if they could down the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide. Despite the loss, the team showed they will be a force to be reckoned with in the future.
