Iowa State 23, No. 19 Texas 21: Longhorns spit, sputter, see their Big 12 title hopes slip away

AMES, Iowa — Last-second wins are amazing things, as Texas fans can attest. It’s miserable when that last-gasp field goal sails through the uprights against you, though.

This loss was the culmination of what happened over the course of 60 minutes at Jack Trice Stadium, not to mention October and early November.
