The Longhorns will have had 12 days to move on from a bitter 27-24 double-overtime loss at No. 5 USC when the Longhorns open Big 12 Conference play Thursday night at Iowa State. And although many viewed the close road loss to the Trojans as a moral victory for first-year coach Tom Herman's rebuilding squad, Herman was having none of it.

"Everybody wants to tell us how well we played and how much better we looked, how different we looked, and that's true," Herman told Hookemplus.com.

"We're going to build on a lot of those things. But we're in a zero-sum business. You either did it or you didn't. They don't put the L next to that game with a little asterisk that says, "Yeah, but."

Texas, who opened the season with a 51-41 home loss to Maryland and followed that up with a 56-0 home victory over woeful San Jose State before falling to the Trojans, defeated Iowa State 27-6 last season in Austin and are 5-1 all-time in Ames.

Quarterback Shane Buechele, who passed for 375 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another TD against Maryland, is expected to return to the starting lineup after missing the last two games with a shoulder injury.

Iowa State are a 44-41 overtime loss to Iowa away from a 3-0 start, opening the season with a 42-24 home victory over Northern Iowa and winning at Akron 41-14 on Sept. 16.

Bovada has the Texas listed as 6½-points favorites and the game's total is sitting at 63½ according to MyBookie.ag

On the NCAA Football Moneyline odds at BetOnline Texas are at -245.
