My gut says they drop another close game, late 38-35 tortilla tossers.  Maybe it will be cold and windy so Texas has to get the run game going.  I don't like night games at the Jones.

 

 

I felt this game would be more difficult than OSU or WV.

Lubbock 55 mostly sunny day. 38 and clear Sat night.........and it's always windy.

I think the Raiders take this one at home as the Texas defense continues to struggle . Texas will need a strong run game with clock eating drives if they want to bring home a victory to the 40 acres.

Losing 3 straight would be a disaster and would start to lead me to believe we're not on the right track.

We're on the right track, the defense has some players that are not up to snuff on the defensive front.  Finding a QB was huge!  Schedules play out the way they play out.  Losing a couple close games that they still haven't learned to put away.  I'd be concerned if they got blown out.

    • So this is what Zach Smith’s handle is on the Internet
    • I know it is hard not to list Allen as #1, but I have watched North Shore play and I think they could bear UTSA.  They are simply loaded with D-1 players - most of whom usually sit out the second half while the backups play. There is not a player on the team that is slow.
    • If the UT D plays like its usual self, ISU may very well blow the Horns away in a rout. The UT O is good but will play a better D than it has all season. 
    • BY JAMESON MCCAUSLAND Iowa State possesses the best defense in the Big 12. The Cyclones have experience and talent at nearly every position, but most importantly they run a great scheme that allows them to slow down potent Big 12 offenses. Let’s take a look at what to expect from a stout Iowa State defense on Saturday night: Defensive Line The Iowa State defensive line is active and disruptive. DE Jaquan Bailey leads the team in sacks with 5.5 and is the best pass rusher. 295-pound Jamhl Johnson and 305-pound Ray Lima anchor the middle of the line and serve as solid run stuffers. The most impressive thing about the Cyclones defensive line is how well they play assignment football. It is obvious from watching their previous games that they are well-coached and rarely take themselves out of plays. Linebacker Marcel Spears Jr. is the main player to watch at the linebacker position. Spears is utilized all over the field, possessing the ability to blitz up the middle or off the edge but also possesses the ability to cover athletes in space. Freshman Mike Rose has stepped in at middle linebacker after QB-turned-LB Joel Lanning graduated a season ago. Rose has held his own this year, which is impressive considering playing linebacker as a freshman in the Big 12 is difficult. Secondary The Cyclones are very experienced at cornerback with seniors Brain Peavy and D’Andre Payne. If Texas is without Collin Johnson again, the Cyclones will surely not allow Lil’Jordan Humphrey to beat them as easily as Texas Tech did a week ago. At safety, Greg Ellsworth leads the team in tackles with 68 and is a major piece of the Iowa State 3-3-5 defense because of his ability to help shut down the running game. Walk-On Braxton Lewis also plays a key role in the defense, and ranks second on the team with 55 tackles. Lewis will used as a defensive back/linebacker hybrid. Overall, Iowa State is very good in the back end. The group only allowed 14 points to West Virginia earlier this season and held Will Grier to 100 yards passing. Texas will have to find a way to stretch the field vertically to try to open up some room in the middle of the field for Humphrey and other receivers to operate.
