With the score still 21-14 late in the third quarter, West Virginia's defense got in on the action when Keith Washington, Jr. picked an Ehlinger pass and raced it 34 yards to the Texas 29-yard line which, when combined with a 15-yard personal foul on Texas, gave WVU the ball at the 14.

As you could imagine, Cosmi was "giddy" about the play. Texas, ranked No. 11 in the country, sent a man in motion, snapped the ball and Texas QB Sam Ehlinger followed the motioning receiver to the right.

Meanwhile, Texas is coming off a Big 12 opener win over the Oklahoma State Cowboys that happened at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium on Sep. 21.

Texas added to its lead in the fourth quarter with a 13-yard scoring run by Devin Duvernay and a lateral to Samuel Cosmi, the Longhorns' All-America left tackle, who rumbled 12 yards for a touchdown in a play for those in the trenches. Either way, he'll take it. He added the Longhorns' final points, as well, sprinting through a huge hole in the middle of the field for a 23-yard TD with 3:03 to play. After that kick sailed through the uprights, Cosmi was excitedly greeted on the sideline by Texas head coach Tom Herman, as well as a swarm of his teammates.

And, considering all those circumstances, Saturday went almost ideal for the Longhorns as they intercepted West Virginia quarterback Austin Kendall four times, turning three into touchdowns, to secure a 42-31 win. WVU dropped to 3-2 with the loss.
