College Football action on Saturday afternoon and a pair of teams from the Big 12 Conference will square off as the Texas Longhorns grapple with the Iowa State Cyclones at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames, Iowa. Texas won this game at home last year by a score of 24-10. The Longhorns come in at 4-2 in league play and 6-3 overall while the Cyclones are at 3-3 within the Big 12 and 5-4 overall.

Texas Squeezes Past Kansas State

The Texas Longhorns have gon loss, win, loss, win in their last four games and they will try and break that trend with a win in this one. Texas enters this game off a hard-fought 27-24 home win over Kansas State. It was the first game in their last six that they allowed less than 30 points and the defense was expected to be a strength of this team. A big issue for them has been a pass defense that ranks 124th in the nation. The Wildcats are 109th in the nation in passing and yet Texas allowed them to pass for 253 yards in the game. That may not bode well in this one as they are about to face the 8th ranked passing team in the nation. https://twitter.com/TexasFootball/status/1194068799764520960 The Longhorns have not had many issues on the offensive side of the ball as they rank 20th in total offense, 16th in passing, 51st in rushing and 14th in scoring, putting up 37.8 ppg. The Longhorns rolled up 477 yards of total offense against the Wildcats and they were balanced as Texas had 214 yards on the ground and 263 yards through the air. Sam Ehlinger has had a solid season so far as he has thrown for 2641 yards with 24 TDs and just eight INTs. He faced the Cyclones last year and hit 12 of 15 passes for 137 yards with a TD and no INTs in the 24-10 win. Ehlinger will look to have a solid game against a Cyclone defense that is 71st in the nation against the pass. At 4-2 in league play, the Longhorns still have a shot at the Big 12 Title game but they must go at least 2-1 in their last three games and the Sooners have to lose out. It is a long shot for them, especially with this road game and a road game against Baylor on deck.
