Thursday Night on ESPN, we got a extremely entertaining College Football game as two Big12 teams got after it.

Iowa State hosted Texas at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames, Ia and the scene was set as the Cyclone crowd was as boisterous as ever.

The game was a back and forth battle that included Iowa States longest pass play in school history.

However, the way the game ended certainly was not the way you'd like to see a great game end.

With time running down, it appeared as if Texas's running back was stripped of the ball, yet the officials on the field called him down by contact and after a lengthy review, the play stood.

Two more plays later, Texas got into the endzone and ended up winning 31-30 over Iowa State.

After the game, Iowa State Head Coach Paul Rhoads gave a very interesting reaction to the game which clearly showed his outrage to its ending.

Take a look and enjoy.

You have to appreciate the passion, the desire to be great and the overall human element shown by Paul Rhoads in this trying time!
