Longhorns running back Chris Warren III scored the first points for the Burnt Orange at Jack Trice Stadium in almost four years when he burst into the end zone on the team's opening drive of the game and finished with 44 yards on a night where it was hard for both teams to run the ball.
Chris Warren III added a rushing TD to help the Longhorns (2-2) improve to 13-2 against the Cyclones (2-2). 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.

At one point, the makeshift offensive line had four holding calls on 11 plays in the third quarter. "There's a lot of work on offense". That's what the Big 12 offenses are set up to do, but when you're flying around like we did tonight. The first two touchdowns Texas scored came after penalties the Cyclones could've avoided, and questions about the play-calling - like why did star running back David Montgomery have just six carries in the first half? - lingered all night. Nearly none of the improvement Iowa State has made under second-year coach Matt Campbell was evident against the Longhorns. Buechele spread the ball around, hitting 11 different receivers. Buechele completed 19 of 26 passes (73 percent), but for only 171 yards.
The Texas Longhorns will look to rebound from their narrow loss to USC when they visit Ames, Iowa, for a matchup against the Iowa State Cyclones. The teams combined for 568 total yards and 37 first downs, which is about one team's total in a typical Big 12 game. It also failed on two fourth down tries inside the Texas 50. "I thought that they had better plans, and their players executed their plans better than we did".
