For the first-time in school history, the Texas Longhorns lost seven or more games in three straight seasons. A lot of questions remain as to what will happen with head coach Charlie Strong.

On Friday afternoon, they were defeated 31-9 by the TCU Horned Frogs at Darrell K. Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium. It’s the first-time that the Longhorns had three straight losing seasons since losing four straight since 1935-1938.

After this game, athletic director Mike Perrine said that he was going to evaluate Strong’s position. When he was hired, he was the first African-American coach at the school – and has the worst coaching win percentage of any coach in school history.

TCU scored three rushing touchdowns in the second half. Brandon Hatfield also made a 28-yard field goal.

Longhorns kicker Mitchell Becker made a 31 yard field goal in the third quarter.

The Horned Frogs led 7-6 at halftime. Kenny Hill – who had a 150 passing yards and 78 rushing yards — scored on a four yard rushing touchdown for the early 7-0 lead.

Longhorns kicker Trent Domingue made a 21 yard field goal to cut the lead to 7-3 in the first quarter. Becker made a 24 yard field goal with 2:29 left in the half to make it 7-6.
