We have reached week twelve of the college football season which means most games are conference showdowns. In this game it’s a Big 12 showdown when the Iowa State Cyclones make the trip to Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium to take on the Texas Longhorns.
The Longhorns have won the last two games played between the two teams.
Iowa State Cyclones
The Iowa State Cyclones seem to be the pest of the Big 12 conference. On paper they aren’t a special team, but they seem to do everything right and come into this game having won five games in a row.
They have also covered the spread in four of those five games. The Cyclones strength is on the defensive side of the field giving up only 20.4 points per game, and that has been what has won them these games.
Against a high powered West Virginia offense a few games ago they gave up only 14 points, and that is the type of mindset they need in this game.
The defense needs to come out strong and really try to get a couple big games on the defensive side of the field. If they can create a turnover or two early and take the crowd out of it, that would go a long way.
On the offensive side they need to hang on the ball and not turn it over. Turnovers is going to hurt their chances at pulling the upset.
On the other side of this matchup is the Texas Longhorns who just a few weeks ago looked like a team that could maybe the college football playoffs, but a bad last few weeks has done them in.
They come into this game having lost two of the last three games but in the last game they got back on the right track beating a good Texas Tech team.
For the Longhorns all season the offense has been a strength averaging 33.2 points per game. On the defensive end they have struggled as of late giving up 38 poitns per game over the last three.
At quarterback the Longhorns are led by Sam Ehlinger who has thrown for 2483 yards, 20 touchdowns and two interceptions.
