The Iowa State defense is primarily powered by its secondary.

The Iowa State Cyclones might not exactly have the uniform style of the Oregon Ducks, but the football program is about to debut some pretty sweet helmets.

Against an Iowa State offense that came in averaging 6.5 yards per play and 41 points per game, they allowed four yards per play and a single touchdown. Texas has been relying on freshman quarterback Sam Ehlinger to hold down the fort while starter Shane Buechele recovers from a shoulder injury he suffered in the season-opening loss to Maryland.

Now, let's take a look at three takeaways from the Texas Longhorns win over the Iowa State Cyclones in Week 5. The Longhorns must shut down redshirt junior quarterback Jacob Park and the Cyclone offense in order to pick up their first road win of the season. The I-State mark will continue to be Iowa State's primary athletics mark. That lead almost disappeared during a disastrous third quarter and in the second half UT totaled 126 yards - with 50 of those coming on a close-it-out drive against a dispirited defense. That was something they had a lot of trouble with under Charlie Strong.

But that was it for the Iowa State offense. "It can put you in a tough situation", Iowa State coach Matt Campbell said.

Texas scored two first-half touchdowns, with Chris Warren III rushing for an 11-yard score to cap off a 12-play, 82-yard drive.

Buechele, who started for the first time since being injured back in Week 2, finished the night with 171 yards, a touchdown and an interception. "Offensively we've got to get better, but I was really excited to get back on the field", Buechele said after missing the USC game.

The Cyclones face Texas at 8 p.m. ET at Jack Trice Stadium Thursday night on ESPN. Texas's Malik Jefferson stuffed Park on a fourth-and-4 at the 50 midway through the fourth quarter. "I thought that they had better plans, and their players executed their plans better than we did".
