Texas 27, Iowa State 6: Longhorns back at home, back in the win column

By no means has Charlie Strong fixed all of Texas’ problems. Far from it, really.

Those who have mentally moved on from Texas’ third-year head coach won’t be swayed by the 27-6 victory over the 1-6 Cyclones. But the Longhorns snapped their three-game skid with a third-quarter offensive burst and a critical fourth-down defensive stop. And perhaps the best news of all? Strong improved to 1-14 at Texas when trailing at halftime. That zero is now a thing of the past. With six games remaining, Texas (3-3, 1-2 Big 12) could still go either way this season.

Bohls: This Texas win looked good — from the stands or anywhere else

It had been a minute since I’d sat in the stands at Royal-Memorial Stadium for a Texas football game as this typist did on Saturday night. I’ve practically grown up in that stadium, ushering patrons to their seats as a Boy Scout for first quarters, then scattering to … Read More

Third and Longhorns: Inside Texas-Iowa State

WHY TEXAS (3-3, 1-2) WON: Because the Longhorns are a second-half team. Or at least they were Saturday night.
