Texas fans are coming to expect big plays from safety DeShon Elliott.

The junior made his third and fourth interceptions of the 2017 season Thursday against Iowa State, and also broke up a would-be touchdown with a big hit in the third quarter.

His first interception of Cyclones quarterback Jacob Park came in the second quarter after Park overthrew his receiver. The turnover led to a Texas touchdown that made the score 14-0.

In the third quarter, Elliott prevented a touchdown by laying a big hit on Hakeem Butler while he tried to haul in a pass from Park. The Cyclones ended up scoring a couple plays later.

Elliott’s second interception came at a critical moment in the game, as Iowa State had a chance to tie the game with a possession that began late in the third quarter. Instead, Park overthrew his target again with Elliott lying in wait.

The Longhorns capitalized on the turnover with a 49-yard field goal by Joshua Rowland.

Combined those plays with Elliott’s two interceptions against USC, and the safety is making a great case for being the team’s most valuable player through four games.
