Texas can continue climbing the rankings with a win over Iowa State, who needs a win to be bowl eligible.
After winning a battle of ranked teams, the Texas Longhorns play for four straight wins against the Iowa State Cyclones in Austin, Texas on Saturday.
That win came against No. 18 Texas Tech Red Raiders. David Ash passed for 264 yards on just 11 completions, while Johnathan Gray added 106 yards on the ground. With offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin's relatively-balanced offense, the No. 17 Longhorns are the 11th-best scoring team, despite ranking 40th in total offense. Texas is 7-2 on the season, despite giving up 447 yards of offense to its opponents.
Iowa State's season has been deflated a bit as the Cyclones have lost three of their last four games. The latest loss was a 35-20 defeat at the hands of the Oklahoma Sooners in which the Cyclones were outgained, 593-290. That performance highlights the struggles of Iowa State's offense, which has switched between quarterbacks Steele Jantz and Jared Barnett. Jantz, last week's starter, is completing 64% of his passes and averages 229 yards per game in his starts.
