Texas senior class legacy short of expectations

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - In February 2010, the Texas Longhorns signed a group of recruits ranked among the best classes in the nation. They were the supposed to be the next group chasing Big 12 and national championships at a powerhouse program.

Many of them will play their final home game Thanksgiving night against Texas Tech having come nowhere close to what was expected over the past four seasons.

Since losing to Alabama in the 2009 season championship game, Texas (7-3, 6-1) is 29-19 overall without a Big 12 title.

The seniors still have one last chance to win a league title if they beat Texas Tech (7-4, 4-4) and then Baylor on Dec. 7.

Win those games, hope Oklahoma State loses to Oklahoma, and Texas can claim its first league crown since 2009.
