A bye week didn’t help the Texas Longhorns solve their problems with blowing double-digit leads — the Baylor Bears became the third consecutive ranked team to overcome a significant deficit against the Longhorns, raising questions about whether head coach Steve Sarkisian’s program is spiraling as they head to Ames to face the Iowa State Cyclones.
Over the last four games, Texas has been outscored 55-10, producing the first three-game losing streak since 2016, the final year of the Charlie Strong era.
At night in Ames, the 5-3 Cyclones pose a significant challenge with an experienced team featuring 11 returning starters on offense and a two-game winning streak against the Longhorns by a combined five points.
Texas is looking to avoid its first four-game losing streak since 2010.
