Texas still searching for offensive identity after win over Iowa State

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. The Longhorns must shut down redshirt junior quarterback Jacob Park and the Cyclone offense in order to pick up their first road win of the season. The win was not pretty, but sometimes an ugly win is just a win.

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

The Iowa State defense stopped the Texas offense in its tracks on its first drive of the game.

In what remained a mystery up until kickoff, Shane Buechele, the sophomore quarterback from Arlington, got the start for the Longhorns over Westlake standout Sam Ehlinger. "When you look at big-picture goals. we want to compete for the Big 12 Championship in the month of November", Herman said.

The Iowa State defense is primarily powered by its secondary. Iowa State punted from the Longhorns' 33, 36, 36 and 38. Buechele spread the ball around, hitting 11 different receivers. Lil'Jordan Humphrey led the way with four catches, and six Longhorns caught at least two passes.

We're still a little bit from game time so we don't know for sure how this one will play out just yet, but one thing we do know is that when these teams do hit the field in Ames for this showdown, the Cyclones will be looking fresh as ever. Montgomery finished with 34 yards on nine carries, while Park threw the ball 48 times. OU held Ohio State to 16 points. "I thought we were able to make some really good adjustments".

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.

Texas will host Kansas State next Saturday, Oct. 7. It also failed on two fourth down tries inside the Texas 50.
