Texas at Iowa State

Although it most likely will not be Ehlinger who lines up under center at Iowa State, the game plan does not have to change.

This year, Texas returns for its Big 12 opener with new coach Tom Herman.

And perhaps most importantly, Texas Tech has limited big plays, allowing just one play of over 30 yards (tied for first in FBS).

"We stop them and defensively, JaQuan gets a silly penalty", Campbell said. We didn't do a good enough job protecting him. Their last seven full drives netted just 89 yards and resulted in five punts (four three-and-outs), a turnover, and a charity field goal following an interception at ISU's 38.

On the offensive side of the ball, Allen Lazard had a team-best five receptions for 63 yards.

Iowa State enters at 2-1, with a loss to Iowa sandwiched between wins over Northern Iowa and Akron. However, Cyclone running backs only got 10 carries for 35 yards.

Campbell said trailing the whole game, especially in the second half, contributed to Montgomery's lack of touches.

They say a game cannot be won in the first quarter, but you sure can lose one that early. Jacob Parkconnected with Hakeem Butler and Marchie Murdock four times each and Matthew Eaton had his first touchdown catch of the season, an 11-yard grab in the third quarter.

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. Like, do Iowa State players trot about campus as normal humans during school hours, then morph into differing versions of Batman? "How do we continue to find ways to put them in better positions and be successful?"

Iowa State's sports teams have been known as the Cyclones since 1895 when Coach Pop Warner's team upset Northwestern 36-0 and a Chicago Tribune headline the next day reported "Struck by a Cyclone: It comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town".
