AUSTIN (KXAN) – It’s the typo taking the internet by storm. Texsa. And it’s in the University of Texas’ official media guide for the 2014 Texas Longhorns football team.

Found in the footer of some of the players’ biography pages it appears a TexsaSports.com, a typo for the official website for University of Texas Athletics, TexasSports.com. However, some Oklahoma fans have already taken advantage of the typo and purchased TexsaSports.com to poke fun at their Texas rivals.

The university has taken steps to correct the typo on digital versions of the media guide.

Popular sports site SBNation.com’s headline inaccurately proclaims “Texas” is misspelled on every page of the media guide. We’ve thumbed through the entire guide and counted 32 times the website address is misspelled.

But, it seems many in the blogosphere are citing other media sources saying the misspelling is on every page.

The misspelling appears on odd-numbered pages inside the player biography section in the 2014 media guide.
