No. 13 Iowa State Rallies to Beat Sam Ehlinger, No. 17 Texas

No. 13 Iowa State took a massive step toward earning a berth in the Big 12 Championship Game with a 23-20 victory over No. 17 Texas on Friday.

The Cyclones (7-2, 7-1) trailed for almost the entire game in Austin before taking their first lead on a Breece Hall touchdown run with 1:25 left in the fourth quarter. The dramatic comeback win makes ISU a virtual lock to play in the conference title game.

The Longhorns (5-3, 4-3), who were celebrating Senior Day, led by 10 midway through the third quarter after Sam Ehlinger found Jared Wiley for a seven-yard score.
