Losses don’t get much tougher than the one just suffered by Tom Herman and the Texas Longhorns, who fell on the road to Iowa State, 23-21, on a last-second field goal.
Texas took the lead late and appeared to be in good position when a go-ahead field goal by Iowa State was missed with a little more than 2 minutes to go. The Longhorns were offsides on the missed kick, though, so the drive continued.
Fast forward about two minutes and Iowa State was attempting a shorter game-winning field goal. This one did not miss.
Iowa State wins.
CYCLONES WIN! 🌪

Texas fans were already frustrated with their team’s performance before the devastating mistake. The Longhorns’ fan base is surely furious now.
Iowa State improved to 6-4 with the win, while Texas dropped to 6-4.
The Longhorns entered the season with major expectations. They’ll need another win or two just to make a decent bowl game now.
