The Texas Longhorns head into Ames, Iowa, hoping to snap both their three-game losing streak this season, as well as trying to avoid a three-game losing streak against the Iowa State Cyclones.

The Longhorns have lost with the same script in the last three outings, building an early lead and then letting it slowly drift away. The Cyclones are a team that would love to use the same methodology that the Oklahoma State Cowboys and Baylor Bears used to beat Texas - weather the early storm and grind out a win on the ground. They have one of the best backs in the country in Breece Hall, who is coming off a 167-yard performance in their lost to the West Virginia Mountaineers.

Quarterback Brock Purdy struggled early in the season but has come on over the last four weeks, passing for 945 yards and eight touchdowns in a 3-1 stretch for the Cyclones in October.
