HIGHLIGHTS: Iowa State hits game-winning field goal as time expires to beat No. 19 Texas Longhorns

Here is a live blog to give you the latest scores and updates between the Texas Longhorns and Iowa State Cyclones.

AMES, Iowa —

FINAL: TEXAS 21, IOWA STATE 23

After trailing for nearly the entire game, Texas took its first lead with nearly five minutes to go on Sam Ehlinger's third touchdown pass of the day. On the final drive, however, Iowa State hit a game-winning field goal as time expired. Texas would have had nearly two minutes to respond to a field goal attempt earlier in the drive, but the Longhorns were called offsides and allowed the Cyclones to drain the remaining two minutes before hitting the 36-yard game-winner.

The loss marks Texas' fourth of the season and third conference loss, essentially squandering any chance the team had of making the Big 12 Championship game.

Texas will play Baylor on the road next week.
