STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — The seat for Texas coach Charlie Strong might have just gotten a bit hotter.

Texas athletic director Mike Perrin told a reporter after Saturday’s 49-31 loss to Oklahoma State: “We need to evaluate what happened here.”

Strong has been under intense scrutiny since taking over at Texas. The Longhorns showed promise at times last season with wins over Oklahoma and Baylor, but they also lost to Iowa State, Texas Tech and West Virginia.

This season started with a win over Notre Dame that pushed the Longhorns into the Top 25. A 50-43 loss to California stung, then 22nd-ranked Texas had a week off to prepare for Oklahoma State. The Cowboys rolled up 565 yards and posted their highest point total in 31 meetings with the Longhorns.

Texas trailed Saturday’s game 37-25 at halftime.

“You can’t play the way we played in the first half and expect to win a football game, especially in a tough environment like this,” Strong said.

Strong has a 13-16 record at Texas and a 9-10 mark in Big 12 play.
