This year, if you happen to flash the 'Horns down' sign, keep it short.

At day two of the Big 12 Media Day in Arlington, Big 12 Coordinator of Officials Greg Burks cleared things up with regard to the 'horns down' sign.

If done quickly and towards your own fans, it likely won't be a penalty, Burks explained.

If the hand sign is flashed in a more taunting manner, towards Texas players, Burks said the yellow penalty flag will come out.
