Iowa State falls at home to Texas

"The new Cyclone logo was created by Joe Bosack & Co. this summer to serve as a nickname logo for the athletics department", Iowa State Athletics said in a press release.

The Iowa State Cyclones might not exactly have the uniform style of the Oregon Ducks, but the football program is about to debut some pretty sweet helmets.

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.

In soccer, a team can "park the bus", so to speak, going all in on defense, giving up few open scoring chances, and hoping to spring a counter-attack on the opponent at some point to eke out a less-than-thrilling 1-0 win. Iowa State gained just 256 yards - and only 10 on the ground. After all, Herman praised the Iowa State defense after the game for "playing different fronts and coverages" the Longhorn coaching staff hadn't seen in the two-plus years of ISU's game film they studied before the game. "They brought a lot of pressure in the first half of the game, and had more guys on the line of scrimmage than there were blockers, it can put you in a tough situation".

"Iowa State has used various forms of Cyclone marks occasionally in its history".

"I thought our kids played outstanding in terms of attitude and effort", said Iowa State coach Matt Campbell. Chris Warren III scored the night's opening touchdown but combined with Kyle Porter to gain just 83 yards on 33 carries (2.5 per carry). Buechele completed 19 of 26 passes (73 percent), but for only 171 yards. "Offensively at times we made some really good plays we just could not get the consistency we needed to win the game". Park finished 24-of-48 for 246 hard-earned 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. "I thought that they had better plans, and their players executed their plans better than we did".

Iowa State will face Oklahoma on October 7 at 11 a.m. It also failed on two fourth down tries inside the Texas 50.
