Longhorns unconcerned about Frogs
By Jeff Caplan
AUSTIN -- The Texas Longhorns have heard the howls since they skated past Nebraska, 13-12, in the Big 12 title game. The Longhorns' inclusion in the BCS national title game has been questioned while calls for TCU, this season's national darling, to play in the game have grown louder.
"Well, we’re going to the national championship, nothing else really matters," Texas senior defensive tackle Lamarr Houston said. "People can say what they want, but who’s going to the game? There’s no point in even talking about it. We don’t even play them so it’s not even a discussion. The last time we did play them I think it was pretty well handed to them.”
Texas beat TCU, 34-13, in Austin in 2007. The Horns took control in the second half after trailing 10-0 at halftime.
