The 2024 College Football Playoff Semifinal Sugar Bowl game between Texas and Washington was nothing short of eventful. After a tough 31-37 loss to Washington on Monday, January 1, Texas fans are a bit heartbroken. Especially since the nail biting game, which Texas was favored to win, had the potential for a game changing ending in the last few minutes of the fourth quarter.

And like most Texas opposers, Washington players wasted no time mocking Longhorn fans after the game. In a viral video captured by Cory Mose on X, four Washington players are seen near the stands where Texas fans are on their feet taunting comments back and forth at each other while Washington players wave the infamous “horns down” hand gesture at Longhorn Nation. 

Washington player Dyson McCutcheon (wearing No. 21) yells, “We run the south,” while Jaivion Green (No. 0), runs away shouting, “you’re mad, you’re mad, you’re all f**king mad.” In the muffled audio, it’s unclear what Texas fans fired back at the Washington players, but many were seen with their horns up and one man in a grey hoodie leaning from the stands shouted, “remember me, motherf**ker.”
