Mack Brown and Horns players showed their appreciation for the atmosphere at DKR during Saturday night’s 48-45 loss to the Mountaineers.

David Ash @dashel14 “DKR was awesome last night. Thanks Texas Fans for an awesome turnout. I Thess. 5:18a In all things give thanks.”

The record home crowd of 101,851 fueled David Ash, as he kept the Horns in a shootout with the Heisman favorite, Geno Smith. The No.2 rated passer in the nation, behind Smith, actually had a better completion percentage and threw for one more yard than the Heisman hopeful.

Alex Okafor @aokafor80 “Learn and bounce back”

Okafor played his role in firing up the DKR crowd in the second quarter, forcing a fumble from Geno Smith that was recovered by Jackson Jeffcoat in the end zone to tie the score. The 4th ranked mountaineers capitalized on the few mistakes by the Longhorns defense, most coming on key fourth down situations. In a game in which every possession was critical, West Virginia succeeded on five of five fourth downs.

Mack Brown @UT_MackBrown “Tough loss, kids played hard. Thank U fans, U did a tremendous job last night. By far loudest&longest I’ve heard you yell in my 15 yrs @UT”

Mack Brown @UT_MackBrown “Fans really helped us. Kept guys alive, working & upbeat vs very good team. You never got down. So I do really want to thank you. #CUinDallas”

The record crowd at Royal Memorial Stadium made record noise on Saturday night, at least to the ears of Mack Brown. Mack is hoping Texas fans bring that energy to Dallas on Saturday for this year’s edition of the Red River Shootout. Coming off a couple of tough tests to start conference play, the 15th ranked Longhorns will likely be better prepared for the Sooners in this season’s rivalry renewal.
