Iowa State Football Unveils Secondary Logo

Iowa State football is breaking out an entirely new look against Texas Thursday night.

Tom Herman was complimentary of Iowa State when asked about Texas' offense throughout the night.

In a somewhat surprising move, Herman started sophomore quarterback Shane Buechele, who returned from a shoulder injury, over true freshman quarterback Sam Ehlinger.

With how much uncertainty there is at the top of the Big 12 right now, the emergence of Texas could be a storyline to watch within the next few weeks.

Iowa State was supposed to be better. That was something they had a lot of trouble with under Charlie Strong.


Iowa State (2-1) will be underdogs - like they usually are against the Longhorns (1-2) - in the league opener for both teams. Texas still has a long way to go this season, but a 2-2 start while getting its first win in Ames since 2013 isn't bad at all. Buechele led the offense to three scoring drives.

"We played great defense", Herman said. The first two touchdowns Texas scored came after penalties the Cyclones could've avoided, and questions about the play-calling - like why did star running back David Montgomery have just six carries in the first half? - lingered all night.

Iowa State is 26th nationally in rush defense, and that includes a matchup against run-heavy Iowa.

Unfortunately for Iowa State's momentum, Texas got a couple of lucky breaks on its possession after ISU's third-quarter touchdown - on the kickoff return, Longhorn returner Armanti Foreman appeared to have fumbled which was recovered by ISU, but the refs called his knee down.
