Tom Herman, Texas score first Big 12 victory by outlasting Iowa State

But even that game was hardly the Longhorn defense's fault. But a win on the road in league play is never something to scoff at - especially when you're just four games into Herman's coaching tenure.

"[The defense] learned a very costly but valuable lesson in the Maryland game", Head Coach Tom Herman said in his postgame press conference.

The defensive pressure gave Texas' offense plenty of room to work, as Iowa State had possession for less than 20 out of the 60 minutes of game time.

But, the running game was inept and the offensive line self-destructed in the third quarter. That's what the Big 12 offenses are set up to do, but when you're flying around like we did tonight.

I know that Iowa State will go back to their traditional helmets a lot more, but I think I speak on behalf of many others who would please ask the Cyclones to wear these as much as possible, please and thank you.

GOP Tax Plan to Allow for Top Individual Rate Above 35%
President Trump called on members of both parties to pass his "historic tax reform and tax cuts". The new plan doesn't list the income brackets for the new rates .

Texas scored two first-half touchdowns, with Chris Warren III rushing for an 11-yard score to cap off a 12-play, 82-yard drive.

"Iowa State has used various forms of Cyclone marks occasionally in its history". Lil'Jordan Humphrey led the way with four catches, and six Longhorns caught at least two passes. While freshman quarterback Sam Ehlinger made a case for himself against USC, throwing for 298 yards and two touchdowns, burnt orange fans can expect Buechele to make his return to the pocket this Thursday. Park finished 24-of-48 for 246 hard-earned yards. Jack Trice Stadium on a weeknight can be an ambush waiting to happen (see: No. 2 Oklahoma State and its double-overtime loss in 2011). Texas's Malik Jefferson stuffed Park on a fourth-and-4 at the 50 midway through the fourth quarter. "In a game like this you have got to make critical plays and I thought defensively we were able to do that for most of the evening".

In the next three weeks, the Longhorns will host Kansas State and Oklahoma State, with a Red River date against Oklahoma sandwiched in between.

Iowa State travels to face Oklahoma on October 7.
