Mack Brown has been involved in every game between Iowa State and Texas.  He was an assistant with Iowa State when the two teams played the first time in 1979.  Every other meeting has been since Mack got to UT.

Texas and Iowa State play at 11am on Saturday.  It'll be the third 11am game for Texas and the other two weren't exactly memorable.  The Oklahoma loss and the ugly win over Kansas were also 11am kickoffs.  Carrington Byndom says he'll "drink lots of coffee" and be ready for this early kickoff.

Texas beat Texas Tech for the first win over a top 25 team in more than two years.  The last time before that was the 2010 win in Nebraska.  Texas followed that win with a loss at home to Iowa State.

Colt McCoy will be an honorary captain for the game against Iowa State.

Mike Davis is now 6th in the nation (FBS) in yards per catch at 19.06.

Johnathan Gray is just the 8th freshman in UT history to run more than 100 yards in back-to-back games.  The others are Earl Campbell, Edwin Simmons, Ricky Williams, Cedric Benson, Vince Young, Malcolm Brown, and Joe Bergeron.

Steve Edmond has a team high 76 tackles and Mack Brown says the linebacker continues to improve.

Texas is one of just four BCS teams to play at least four road games this year and be undefeated in those games.  The others are Alabama, Rutgers and Texas A&M.
