The Texas Longhorns opened as a two-point favorite over the Iowa State Hawkeyes, according to betting odds from Williams Hill Sports Book, and noted by 247Sports.

From 247Sports: “Texas (5-2, 4-2 Big 12), Iowa State (6-2, 5-1) and No. 14 Oklahoma (6-2, 5-2) are in control of their own destiny when it comes to earning a berth in the conference championship game. The Cyclones won’t be out of the picture with a loss, but the Longhorns are in a must-win situation much like they were in 2018 when they scored a convincing win over Iowa State, 24-10, in the home finale before beating Kansas the following week to punch their ticket to Arlington.”

NEWS ACROSS THE LONGHORN REPUBLIC AND BEYOND

  • The Longhorns have a chance to finish strong this year, but as 247Sports notes, it’s largely up to the play on the part of senior quarterback Sam Ehlinger. From 247Sports: “There might not be a college football team more tied to a single player’s identity than Texas and senior quarterback Sam Ehlinger. He does everything for the Longhorns. He’s Texas’ leading passer. He’s Texas’ leading rusher. He’s made 38 more rushing attempts than the next-closest player on the roster. His 29 total touchdowns account for 85.3% of the offense’s total for the year. Herman employs a variation of the power spread Urban Meyer made famous, and Ehlinger, a bruising runner, embodies the spirit of that term on every snap.”
