                 === Ash on fire as Longhorns rout Cyclones ===
 Austin,  TX  (Sports Network)  - David  Ash completed  25-of-31 passes for 364
 yards  and  two touchdowns,  lifting the 19th-ranked  Texas Longhorns over the
 Iowa State Cyclones, 33-7.
 Johnathan  Gray carried the  ball 14 times for 74 yards and two scores for the
 Longhorns  (8-2, 5-2 Big  12), who have won four in a row. Joe Bergeron rushed
 for 86 yards on 12 carries.
 Jaxon Shipley caught eight passes for 137 yards and Mike Davis hauled in seven
 passes  for 113 yards  and a touchdown for Texas, which racked up 609 yards of
 total offense.
 Steele Jantz connected on 15-of-29 passes for 133 yards with one touchdown and
 two interceptions for the Cyclones (5-5, 2-5), who have dropped two straight.
 "I said going into the week that I thought Texas was a very hot football team,
 and  they are," Iowa  State coach Paul Rhoads said. "They've now won four in a
 row, so congratulations to them."
 Texas  honored  former coach Darrell  Royal, who  passed away on Wednesday, by
 lining  up in the  wishbone formation on its first offensive play of the game.
 Royal  introduced the  wishbone to college football in 1968. Instead of a run,
 the  Longhorns ran  a trick  play that  resulted in  a 47-yard  catch by  Greg
 Daniels. Texas ended up punting the ball away.
 "Well,  what we wanted to do was just honor Coach (Royal) anyway we could, and
 even  if we had  taken the timeout all the kids were going to point to the sky
 and  say, "Thank you, Coach," Texas coach Mack Brown said. "But it couldn't be
 any better than that. I think they told me ESPN stopped all production to look
 at that play, so they got their money's worth too."
 The Longhorns, though, did score a touchdown on their second possession of the
 game.  Ash completed  passes to Davis, Shipley and Gray. Daje Johnson followed
 with  a 16-yard run to move the ball to the five. Gray's 5-yard TD run made it
 a 7-0 game.
 After  Iowa  State went three-and-out,  Ash threw  a 61-yard touchdown pass to
 The  Longhorns had a chance to add to their lead following Carrington Byndom's
 interception  of Jantz. However, Anthony Fera's 32-yard field goal was blocked
 early in the second quarter.
 The  Cyclones tried  to get on the  board with a field goal, but Edwin Arceo's
 53-yarder was off the mark.
 Texas  followed  with a 9-play, 65-yard  scoring drive. Davis caught a 14-yard
 pass  on  3rd-and-6 near midfield,  while Shipley hauled  in a 26-yard pass on
 3rd-and-7  from the Iowa State 34. Barrett Matthews capped the march with a 3-
 yard TD catch. Fera missed the extra point to keep it 20-0 with 2:53 left.
 The  Cyclones  finally got on the  board on the ensuing possession, as Quenton
 Bundrage caught a 14-yard touchdown pass.
 Nick  Jordan made a  37-yard field goal early in the third stanza to make it a
 23-7 game.
 Gray's  13-yard TD run with 12:32 remaining in the fourth made it 30-7. Jordan
 added  a 25-yard  field goal  later in  the period  to account  for the  final
                                   Game Notes
 Texas  leads the  all-time series by a  9-1 margin ... Royal, who was 88 years
 old, is Texas' all-time winningest coach.
