Iowa State vs. Texas: Live Scores, Analysis and Results
Texas 33, Iowa State 7. Final.
The Texas Longhorns made it four consecutive wins Saturday, defeating the Iowa State Cyclones 33-7 in Austin.
Texas rushed out to a 20-0 lead, but the Cyclones scored a much-needed touchdown before halftime to pull within 13 points. But ISU was never able to draw within striking distance, as the Longhorns steadily built upon their halftime lead and won the game handily.
The most glaring difference of the game was the play of the quarterbacks
Longhorns quarterback David Ash went 25-or-31 for 364 yards and a pair touchdowns, while Cyclones quarterback Steele Jantz went just 15-of-29 for 133 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.
The Horns' highly-touted freshman running back Jonathon Gray scored two touchdowns on the ground and totaled 105 total yards on 16 touches.
Texas gained over 600 yards of total offense, while holding Iowa State to a season-low 276 yards.

With a three-touchdown lead, Texas QB David Ash might not be throwing many more passes, but it's safe to say he brought his A-game today.
Just over 12:00 remaining in the game, Ash has completed 24-of-30 passes for 362 yards and two scores. #VideoGameNumbers
Johnathan Gray's second touchdown of the game may be the dagger.
Gray and Joe Bergeron both have 80 yards on the ground, as Texas is outgaining ISU 554-241 in total yards.
38-yard pass from Ash to Shipley sets up Gray 13-yard TD run. Horns go 78 yards in 9 plays (3:56) and now lead 30-7. 12:32 left in game— MBTexasFootball (@MBTexasFootball) November 10, 2012
Texas leads 23-7 after three quarters.
End of the third quarter, Texas has the ball on the ISU 34.
Third quarter ends with Horns leading 23-7. Texas closing in on 500 total yards - 490. Averaging 8.4 yards per play today.— MBTexasFootball (@MBTexasFootball) November 10, 2012
Iowa State running back Shontrelle Johnson started the Cyclones' drive with three carries for 25 yards.
But ISU then abandons the run, and the drive stalls.
The Cyclones' ground game has worked so far, with Johnson racking up 57 yards on nine carries and White adding 53. But with time winding down in the game, ISU needs to score points quick to prevent this game from getting out of reach.
3:40 remaining in the third quarter.
In total yards, Texas leads 476-224. But on the scoreboard, it's only 23-7.
This game is far from over, especially if the Cyclones can find the end zone on this drive.
Interesting that Texas would go for it on fourth down there considering kicker Nick Jordan had just converted a 37-yarder on the Horns' previous possession.
Instead, it's still a two-possession game, and the Cyclones have the ball.
Texas goes for it on fourth down, and they don't get it.
In a surprising move Texas goes for it on 4th and 1, throws an incomplete pass and ISU dodges a bullet. Cyclone ball on their 17.—Bobby La Gesse (@BobbyLaGesse) November 10, 2012

Johnathan Gray doesn't play like a true freshman.
He's going to be a special player before he leaves Austin. Texas has the Cyclones defense on its heels right now with a balanced offensive attack.
Texas ball on the ISU 41.
Iowa State goes three-and-out on its first possession of the half despite a 41-yard by Albert Gary following the Texas field goal.
Cyclones offense needs to get something going quickly if they want to get back in this game.
