Maybe the Texas Longhorns decided to show mercy to the Iowa St. Cyclones during the second half of their Saturday game. After scoring 34 points in the first half, the Longhorns haven't put any points on the board. But Iowa State hasn't either, remaining on the wrong end of a potential shutout.
Texas attempted just six passes in the third quarter and has yet to possess the ball in the fourth quarter. Malcolm Brown and Foswhitt Whittaker have 55 and 50 yards on the ground, respectively. Jaxon Shipley is the top Longhorns receiver with four receptions for 116 yards a touchdown reception.
