That game absolutely looked like two heavily flawed teams with conference title hopes leaving everything they had on the field in pursuit of a big win. Evidently Iowa State's bad luck streak was no match for Texas' horrendous initial game plan and then end of game management.
Texas secured a good victory that included some nice stats for star Sam Ehlinger and a lot of snaps for freshman and back-ups. Several players that will likely redshirt this season got in on the action in this contest.
Texas gave that game to LSU. There's no question that LSU played outstanding football, clearly hiring assistant offensive coach Joe Brady was a great decision and he was able to join forces with Joe Burrow and Steven Ensminger to build a phenomenal spread passing attack. The Tigers came in and won that game with a great effort and a truly potent offensive system.
