Burnt Orange Media Conspiracy is back, baby!
Texas A&M and Texas both entered the opening weekend of college football unranked.
The Aggies faced #16 UCLA on Saturday and let a 15-point 3rd quarter lead slip away before winning in overtime at home.
The Longhorns faced #10 Notre Dame on Sunday night and let a 17-point 3rd quarter lead slip away before winning in two overtimes at home.
Given the similarity of situations, let’s take a look at some headlines from around the Texas media and beyond.
Dallas Morning News
San Antonio Express-News
In a stunning twist the most balanced headlines seem to come from the newspaper in Austin, Texas.
