Texas vS. Iowa State Live stream. Texas vs. Iowa State: Thursday Night’s Big 12 Pick, NCAA College Football
AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State’s improvement under second-year coach Matt Campbell has gone largely unnoticed nationally. The Cyclones can put themselves on the map with a big showing on Thursday night. Iowa State (2-1) opens Big 12 play when it hosts Texas on national television. Although the Longhorns (1-2) are rebuilding under new coach Tom Herman, a strong showing would let the rest of the league know that the Cyclones, who won just three games in 2016, are ready to push for an upper-division finish.
This is a bit of a pick-your-poison affair as Texas has lost nine of its last 11 road games, while Iowa State has not exactly thrived on the home cookin’, having dropped five of their last seven home contests. However, if we are focusing on trends, let’s take a look at a few of them. The country gets to see what we all know,” Campbell said. “The country gets an inward look at what Iowa State is about.
Iowa State’s progress is most evident on offense — a unit that is setting school records seemingly every week. The extra practice time also allowed highly touted defensive tackle Kamilo Tongamoa to get more comfortable in Iowa State’s scheme. He’s a guy we’re really counting on and was playing at a really high rate for us,” Campbell said of Johnson.
