Iowa State vs. Texas score update: Longhorns lead 14-0 after first quarter

The Longhorns came out ready to play on Saturday and hold an early lead over the Cyclones.

John Rieger-US PRESSWIRE

The Texas Longhorns have struggled to get out to early leads against their opponents this season. That was not the case on Saturday against Iowa State; the Longhorns scored touchdowns on two of their first three drives of the game in the first quarter and now hold a 14-0 lead over the Cyclones.

David Ash is a perfect 6-for-6 today with 145 yards and a TD pass. UT took a 7-0 lead on Johnathan Gray's five-yard run to the end zone midway through the first quarter. On their next drive, Ash hit Mike Davis for a 61-yard bomb to extend the lead.

Iowa State has not looked sharp so far. A costly interception in the red zone halted what looked to be a promising drive late in the first quarter, and now Texas is taking the ball down the field yet again.

A win for the Longhorns would push them to 8-2 this season. You can find all of the action on Longhorn Network.
