Kris Stockton's 18-yard field goal as time expired stymied a brilliant Iowa State comeback bid and sealed No. 12 Texas' 44-41 win over the Cyclones. Texas moved ahead 38-27, after a 5-yard TD return of a fumbled kickoff with 2:46 left in the third quarter, then a Stockton field goal made it 41-27 with 9:33 left in the game. On the ensuing kickoff, Cyclone returner J.J. Moses atoned for that fumble miscue with an 80-yard return that set up Ennis Haywood's 7-yard scoring run three plays later.
After the Iowa State defense held, quarterback Sage Rosenfels hit Michael Brantley with a 35-yard pass and Darren Davis scored from the UT 1 on the next play and tied the score, 41-41 with 3:06 left. Texas then drove 71 yards in nine plays for the winning score.
Rosenfels had one of the best day's of his career, hitting on 11-of-20 passes for 291 yards and two touchdowns. Moses tallied 264 all-purpose yards. Davis, held to 67 yards on 24 carries, still scored twice on the ground and once on a 42-yard TD reception to rack up 109 total yards.
ISU led 20-17 at the half, while Texas, which outgained the Cyclones, 474-356, got 158 yards on 33 carries from Hodges Mitchell while Longhorn quarterback Major Applewhite completed 30-of-40 passes for 345 yards and two touchdowns. Safety Jeff Waters led the ISU defense with 20 tackles.
