Darrell K Royal - Texas Memorial Stadium/Joe Jamail Field
• The Series: Texas and Iowa State met for the 10th time on Saturday (UT leads 9-1). All but one of those games has come with both as members of the Big 12 Conference. The teams first met in 1979 with the Longhorns winning 17-9 in Austin. The Horns, who have scored 37 or more points six times in the series, have won four of the five meetings in Austin. Mack Brown teams are 8-1 against ISU with the lone loss coming in 2010 in Austin (28-21).
• Royal Honored: In honor of the passing of Darrell Royal, the Texas offense lined up in the Wishbone formation on its first play. The formation was created during the 1968 season and helped catapult the Longhorns on a school-record 30-game winning streak, the 11th-longest in college football history. The Horns went with a trick play. David Ash handed off to Jaxon Shipley, who was in the backfield, and threw to back to Ash who hit Greg Daniels for 47 yards. The team also wore special ‘DKR’ Longhorn decals on its helmets today to honor Royal. The decals will remain on the helmets the rest of the season.
