The Texas Longhorns (5-2, 4-2) will host the Iowa State Cyclones (6-2, 6-1) in Austin, Texas on Saturday.  The Longhorns haven’t taken the field in three weeks, with their last on-field action resulting in a 17-13 win over West Virginia on November 7th. Iowa State currently sits atop the Big 12 standings, thanks to a 45-0 thrashing of Kansas State last weekend. Both programs control their own destiny as it relates to earning a spot in the Big 12 Championship game, but a loss on Saturday for either team makes the task a lot more challenging – but particularly for the Longhorns.

Texas has fared well against the Cyclones when playing at DKR, holding an 8-1 record.  In the 9 games played in Austin, Texas has outscored the Cyclones by a margin of 13.3 points per game. But, this is a different year.  A ranked Iowa State team that has a balanced attack on both sides of the ball is hungry and in search of the program’s first ever Big 12 title.

Iowa State running back Breece Hall leads the nation in rushing and has amassed eight 100-yard rushing games this season. The Texas defense allows 117 yards on the ground per game, and improved play from the Texas linebackers will make Hall’s job difficult.
