WTH?! (What the Heck?) moments are attempts to find the memorable and the off-beat perspective on Longhorns sports. Here are some interesting moments from the Texas’ game against the Aggies.

Pre-Game WTH 118 years?! I agree that egos have caused this rivalry to end. The Aggies says “It’s time for Texas A&M”… to slug it out with the SEC. The Horns have their path to blaze (LHN). Divorce is tough. Let’s reunite for the kids’ sake.

1st Quarter (7:26) WTH Tucker?! The 31 yard punt by Justin Tucker was making every Longhorn fan pull out their hair. The only good outcome was that most of his punts were never returned. He definitely made up for his punting woes at the end.

2nd Quarter (12:13) WTH Refs 1?! Keenan Robinson was called for roughing the passer when the QB Ryan Tannehill landed on him? Keenan must have pissed off the entire officiating crew because he also got called for a horse collar penalty in the third quarter when he clearly just had the jersey.

2nd Quarter (9:31) WTH Shipley?! This is not for the pass play to Irby for the first score. Before that play and the muffed punt that caused all the electricity for the Horns, Jaxon Shipley I think had the play of the game. On third down his bad knee gave way and he barely got a hand on the ball to knock it down. An Aggie defender was there ready to make the interception and take it to the house. Close call!

2nd Quarter (1:47) WTH Harsin?! Coach Harsin I am going to blame you for this interception thrown by Miles Onyegbule. Your innovative play calling gets this Horn team so fired up that they will throw into triple coverage to please you.

Halftime WTH Aggies?! Every year we lose the halftime show to the Aggies, but the Longhorn band won this one.

3rd Quarter (11:06) WTH UT Defense?! Another awesome display by the defense in the second half which got kick started by Carrington Byndom 58 yard interception return for a touchdown. The secondary was stellar throughout the night which gave the defensive front time to unload on the QB.

3rd Quarter (6:53) WTH Cowboy?! Speaking of the secondary, what a great interception by Kenny Vaccaro along the sideline. Special shout out to Kenny for wearing Fozzy’s jersey #2 in honor of him.

3rd Quarter (:31.2) WTH Mason?! I love the fire that was shown by Mason Walters along the offensive line. But I thought Mason was going to body slam Case McCoy when the team was charged with a delay of game. Just to correct everyone, Mason Walters was not offside as ESPN said early in the 4th quarter.

4th Quarter (1:15) WTH Refs 2?! I will call out the refs no matter who it benefits. The helmet to helmet hit by Aggie Trent Hunter was bogus. Let’s play two hand touch next time refs.

4th Quarter (:33.6) WTH Horseshoe?! Case McCoy showed the same moxie that is brother had against the Aggies by running 25 yards to set up the winning field goal. That horseshoe sure came in handy.

Final Play (:02) WTH Aggies?! Justin Tucker put a cold blooded kick down the middle to the disgust of most of the 88,645 in attendance which was the second largest crowd at Kyle Field. Second largest? Come on Aggies where’s the love? Wonder if Coach Sherman ever looked up at the kick? Goodbye to A&M.

Next up for the Longhorns are the Baylor Bears at 2:30PM on December 3rd to end the regular season.
