How to Watch Texas Vs. Iowa State

AMES, Iowa (KXAN) – The Texas Longhorns need a game to set aside a week full of distractions.

Texas travels to Ames, Iowa on Saturday night, to revive a season that appears to be on the brink of complete disaster. Steve Sarkisian’s first year in Texas has been derailed with a three-game losing streak that started with Oklahoma’s come-from-behind victory in the Red River Showdown.

Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. CT. FS1 shows the game.

This is Texas’ first losing streak in three games since 2016. Texas has not lost four games in a row since its 2010 season, which ended with UT missing a bowl game with a record of 5-7.

Longhorns have lost two in a row against Iowa State. In the 2020 regular season finale, the Longhorns lost a lead at the break and fell to the Cyclones 23-20 at the Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium.

Does that sound familiar? The collapse of the second half has become the main story of the 2021 Longhorns.

Texas has led at the break of every game during the losing streak. In the third and fourth quarters, Texas has been surpassed 75-27 during those three losses. In the fourth quarter, even worse, Texas has been beaten 54-10.

This has not been the season Matt Campbell and Iowa State had envisioned. Cyclones entered the season with visions of competing for the Big 12 and national championships. Three defeats through eight games move the goals.

Iowa State fell last week to West Virginia, losing 38-31 after drawing 17 at the break.

The cyclones are anchored by running back Breece Hall with 985 rushing yards. The defense is as strong as ever under defensive coordinator Jon Heacock. Cyclones leads the big 12 in the total defense and is ranked in Top 25 of Bill Connelly’s SP + Measurements for Defense.
