The Texas Longhorns football season hasn't gone as coach Charlie Strong had planned. After two heartbreaking losses due to special team errors, the Longhorns showed some promise as they won two straight games, including beating a Oklahoma Sooners team that was in the Top Ten in the nation.

But then on Halloween, they got shut out by Iowa State. So basically Texas took two steps forward and one huge step back. This week at 5 p.m. the Longhorns host the Kansas Jayhawks, a game you can hear on 600 ESPN El Paso.

If the Longhorns lose this game to a weak Jayhawks team, it might spell the end of Charlie Strong. So the bottom line is that they need to win this game.

The way they do this is by establishing the running game because let's be honest, the Longhorns passing game has been almost non existent in the last four games. Because of that they need to give freshman QB Jerrod Heard time to pass the ball.

Both teams struggle to score and need help from the defense or special teams but Texas is better than the Jayhawks. Kansas hasn't won a game all season so the Longhorns should win this game. If they don't, people might lose their jobs in Austin.

The Texas-Kansas game broadcast will start at 4 p.m. with the pregame show followed by the game at 5 p.m. on 600 ESPN El Paso
