Texas - Iowa

Texas won the coin toss and elected to defer their possession to the second half. UT kicked off to Iowa, who went on offense. The Iowa drove 77 yards for a touchdown. Texas was unable to score, and returned the ball to Iowa. Texas was able to get some points on the board when walk-on placekicker Ryan Bailey made a 27-yard field goal to make the score 14–3 at the end of the first quarter. Iowa's Drew Tate threw a pass to Andy Brodell, and he ran 63 yards for a touchdown.

In the second quarter, Tate threw a touchdown pass to Scott Chandler, and right after that Tate was seen celebrating by making an upside-down Hook 'em Horns hand signal. Tate threw an interception to UT defensive back Aaron Ross. This made the score 14–10 in favor of Iowa at half-time.

The Longhorns began the second half by scoring a goal bringing the score to 14–13. Then a bit later McCoy threw a rarely used wheel route to running back Jamaal Charles, who ran 72 yards for a touchdown. This gave the Longhorns their first lead of the game at 20–14. That made the score 21–20 at the end of the third quarter. In the fourth quarter, McCoy scrambled on fourth down with 11 minutes to go in the game and was the winning touchdown. The final score was Texas 26, Iowa 24.
