2017 Look back, Texas opens Big 12 with win at Iowa State


AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Longhorns opened Big 12 play on the road in 2017 at Iowa State.  It was a sellout Thursday night crowd on Sept. 28. 

Texas was able to take the crowd out of the game early, on their first possession they drove 81 yards in 6:27 to take an early lead, a lead they would never give up.

Defense was again the key, the Longhorns picked off Iowa State quarterback Jacob Park three times and only allowed 10 yards rushing from the Cyclones.

In one of the more unusual endings, Texas got the ball with a 17-7 lead and never gave it back, the Longhorns ran out the clock on a 13 play, 40 yard drive taking the final 7:35 of the game.

Iowa State went on to make a quarterback change from Park to Kyle Kempt which changed their season. They went on to win their next four including games against Oklahoma and TCU.

Texas will host Iowa State in their final home game of the 2018 season on Nov. 17.
