Texas travels to Ames, Iowa on Thursday for a weekday game against Iowa State.
The Longhorns sit at 1-2 and have not taken the field since dropping a double overtime contest to USC on Sept. 16. 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.
Iowa State enters the game at 2-1 after defeat Akron 41-14 on Sept. 16. The Cyclones have scored at least 41 points in their three games this season, including a 44-41 overtime loss to Iowa. Running back David Montgomery has rushed for 321 yards and four touchdowns to create a balanced attack as quarterback Jacob Park has completed 66.7 percent of his passes for 935 yards and eight scores.
In last year's meeting, Texas came away with a 27-6 victory.
