Offense has been the name of the game for Texas Christian University this year, and the Horned Frogs will be looking to keep the train rolling Saturday in Iowa State against the Cyclones.
- TCU is 10-0 SU in its last 10 conference games.
- The total has gone UNDER in Iowa State’s last five home games.
- The Cyclones are 5-15-3 ATS in its last 23 vs. teams with winning records.
To say the last collision between these two clubs was one-sided would be a massive understatement. TCU hammered Iowa State 55-3 last December, covering the -34.5 spread with ease.
The Horned Frogs have amassed a stunning 615.5 yards per game so far this year – good enough for the third highest mark in the nation. The OVER/UNDER has gone 4-2 during that span as a result.
Recent history is showing the Cyclones do not enjoy playing familiar foes. In the Cyclones’ last seven conference games, they are just 1-6 SU and ATS.
