Texas ceded momentum to Iowa State in the first half of Thursday’s Big 12 Conference showdown, falling behind 13-10 just before intermission.
But quarterback Case McCoy responded with a heave very unlike the short passes offensive coordinator Major Applewhite called much of the way. McCoy’s 44-yard touchdown heave to wide receiver John Harris with time expired recaptured the lead and gave the Texas offense hope heading into the locker room.

The Longhorns’ two, first-half touchdowns came on plays of 44 and 45 yards. Running back Johnathan Gray broke a long rush to the end zone on the game’s opening drive, but the Texas offense sputtered since.
