Former Texas walk on Dylan Haines with 74-yard INT return vs. ISU

Charlie Strong special.

The schizophrenic Texas Longhorns football team continued with the big plays and big mistakes that have been part and parcel of this season, but one of the biggest came in the second quarter against the Iowa State Cyclones when sophomore former walk-on safety Dylan Haines returned an interception for a touchdown.

With the game tied at 21-21 in the second quarter, Iowa State was driving, but Haines recognized the out route by stud Iowa State tight end E.J. Bibbs, jumped it, then used a cut inside against quarterback Sam Richardson and just enough juice at the end to find the end zone.

At halftime, the Horns went into the locker room tied with the Cyclones, however, after sophomore quarterback Tyrone Swoopes threw an ill-advised interception across his body in the red zone up 14-0 and a fumble by senior wide receiver John Harris resulted in a 51-yard touchdown return by Iowa State to tie the game at 14-14.

So if you've been under a rock for the last several weeks, meet your 2014 Texas Longhorns, a team of major peaks and major valleys.
