Just over four minutes later the Longhorns found the end zone again when Malcolm Brown scored on a one-yard touchdown run.

After forcing a three and out, Texas had a chance to extend the lead but Fera missed a 45-yard field goal attempt.

On the ensuing drive, Kansas State cut the deficit to 10 points with a one-yard touchdown run from Waters. However, the Wildcats would get no closer.
