AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — It's been a tough week for Texas coach Mack Brown.

The Longhorns (1-2) have lost two straight games and will open the Big 12 season Saturday night at home against Kansas State (2-1). Then came Thursday's revelation that a school regent and a close friend talked in January with Alabama coach Nick Saban's agent about the possibility of luring Saban to Austin if Brown retired. The friend followed the phone call with a meeting with Brown to ask him if he was ready to retire.

No, Brown said, and that was that. But only until two straight losses to BYU and Mississippi sparked a new flurry of questions about his future at Texas.

The Wildcats have won five straight against Texas, which has key injuries on offense.
