/> Money left over is being spent on the printing of 20,000 "45-35” signs for fans to hold up during today’s Texas-Texas A&M game in Austin.

The Daily Texan, the school’s student newspaper, is also printing a full-page "45-35” ad. Up to 40,000 copies will be distributed before Thursday’s game as well.

"The goal is to remind people that Texas beat Oklahoma, and that was the score,” said Austin Talbert, a UT sophomore journalism major, who was one of the founders of the campaign. "We don’t want to see a team we beat pass us up.”

Talbert organized the movement by creating a Facebook group, which by Wednesday night had ballooned to more than 16,000 members.
