As the Iowa State Cyclones’ field goal split the uprights, time expired and so did the Texas Longhorns’ shot at a return trip to the Big 12 Championship game with a 23-21 loss.

Texas struggled in the first half, but in spite of that managed to head into the locker room down just one score at half. The defense gave up a score on the opening drive of the second half to fall behind 20-7, but managed to battle back and take a 21-20 lead.

However, Texas was unable to run out the clock and late-game penalties gave Iowa State ideal field position on the final drive.

This is your post-game commiseration thread.
