Kansas State knocks off Texas,
#1
Texas had passed every test on the way to its first No. 1 ranking.

The Longhorns beat North Carolina at Cowboys Stadium, Michigan State in Austin, and pulled out a tougher-than-expected road win against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. It was a tough first week as the nation's top-ranked team against Iowa State and Texas A&M, but Texas still won both.

Monday's game represented the Longhorns' toughest task so far: on the road in a juiced arena against a top 10 team.

They didn't seem ready for it. Texas struggled against Kansas State's pressure, shooting 10 for 33 from the field with 11 turnovers to trail by 10 at the half. Texas managed to keep it close for a while before the Wildcats went on a 18-4 run. Jamar Samuels was the key, with his 3 pointer that put the Wildcats up 36-22. Being the best team in the nation, Texas had an answer. They scored eight quick points to start the 2nd half to cut the deficit to 36-34. The battle went back and forth until Kansas State went on a 11-1 run to go up 62-52, which set them up for the victory.

I think that this was a very good game. I liked the powerhouse matchup, and it definitely delivered. It was overall a good game by both sides, but the Wildcats took it.
