The Texas Longhorns (1-2, 0-0) will face the Iowa State Cyclones (2-1, 0-0) on Thursday evening in a prime-time matchup scheduled to air nationally on ESPN.  The meeting is the 15th between the two schools, with the Longhorns holding a 12-2 record all-time against the Cyclones.  Texas looks to carry momentum from a disappointing 27-24 overtime loss to USC two weeks ago and win its second straight game as conference play begins at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames.  Iowa State boasts a 2-1 record after winning its opener against Northern Iowa, followed by an overtime loss to in-state rival Iowa and throttling Akron 41-14. .

Last season Texas defeated Iowa State 27-6 in Austin to snap a 3-game losing streak.  In their most recent trip to Ames (2015), the Cyclones shut out Charlie Strong’s Longhorns 24-0
