No. 17 Texas squanders late lead vs. No. 13 Iowa State for 23-20 loss: Post-game commiseration thread

Photo by Matthew Pearce/Icon Sportswire via The Longhorns had the ball and the lead lade, but a stagnant offense and an explosive drive from ISU ended Texas’ Big 12 title hopes. Following early three weeks away from the game field, the No. 17 Texas Longhorns had an ideal opportunity to capture their fourth consecutive win, owning the lead and the ball late in the fourth. But a quick three-and-out followed by an Iowa State touchdown saw the Longhorns lose that lead, 23-20, with only 1:32 to play. The Sam Ehlinger-led offense marched down the field, but a critical...

Grueling schedule will test talented, experienced Texas team

Stephen Spillman-USA TODAY Sports Talent. Experience. Depth. Star potential. The Longhorns have nearly everything they could want on paper, but reaching their goals will require navigating the nation’s most brutal conference.
