Longhorns still think they won Big 12 football title

The Texas Longhorns still won’t concede the 2008 Big 12 football championship.

Prominently displayed on a wall inside Texas’ Moncrief-Neuhaus training facility is a list of Texas’ Big 12 and South Division championships.


According to Tim Griffin of ESPN.com, the Longhorns have included 2008 among their Big 12 championships — with an asterisk.

Last season, OU edged out Texas and Texas Tech for the South title in a three-way tie determined by the BCS Standings, despite a fervent protest from Texas coach Mack Brown and Longhorn fans.

The Sooners went on to beat Missouri to win their third-consecutive Big 12 championship.

Apparently, that victory is still not being acknowledged in Austin.
