TCU will qualify for the bowl when playing against Iowa State University, tied to the bowl, at the finale of the Big 12 Conference in Ames, Iowa, Friday afternoon.
Cyclones will play in the postseason no matter what happens on Friday, but the match against TCU is a chance for a seasoned senior class at Iowa State University to win again in front of the home crowd.
Horned Frogs (5-6, 3-5 Big 12) will move to Iowa after winning Kansas 31-28 at home on November 20th. Horned Frogs wins for the second time in three games under provisional coach Jerry Kill.
“I’m proud of the kids,” Kill said. “They know and understand that we are not here. New coach staff are coming. They are still playing hard. The coaches are working hard.”
Kendre Miller rushed 112 yards, including a 56-yard TD run. Miller surpassed the 100-yard mark for the third time in his last six contests when the TCU ran 326 yards in the game. Max Dagan passed 166 yards at Horned Frogs, Delius Davis caught 6 passes at 103 yards and ran 43 yards at Horned Frogs touchdown.
Iowa State University (6-5, 4-4) returned home after losing 28-21 at 13 Oklahoma on November 20th. Cyclone lost two games in a row after bombarding Texas 30-7 on November 1. Of their last four contests.
Cyclone coach Matt Campbell said, “A little accuracy and detail at the points of the match probably sacrificed us a football match, but not our mind, personality, or leadership.” “That’s why I’m a proud soccer coach.”
This is the final home game for Cyclone’s 23 seniors, including record-breaking running back Breece Hall and quarterback block purdy. Hall broke the FBS record set by Bill Barnett of Arkansas between 1968 and 1970, rushing to record a touchdown for 23 consecutive games. Purdy owns or shares 31 school records.
Iowa State University has achieved 10 consecutive home wins against league teams, setting a perfect home record with the big 12 teams for the second year in a row.
Prior to the season, Cyclone was considered a true candidate for the Big 12 titles. Instead, they try to avoid the .500 season.
TCU has always had an 8-4 lead in its rivalry with Cyclone, including a 3-2 advantage in games played at Ames.
