Most notably, the burnt orange led in total yardage and time of possession, keeping their defense fresh throughout the contest.
Texas kept Iowa State quarterback Jacob Park on his toes all day, forcing him from the pocket and into difficult throws.
Its running backs took just nine carries for 24 yards in the loss, opening up criticism from fans and media regarding offensive coordinator Tim Beck’s play calling.
