Iowa State vs. Texas 2012: TV schedule, game time, spread and more

Erich Schlegel

The Texas Longhorns enjoyed a resurgence against Texas Tech; can Mack Brown's team keep that momentum going against Iowa State?

The No. 17 Texas Longhorns aim to keep their momentum rolling heading into a Big 12 matchup against the Iowa State Cyclones.

The Longhorns' season took another interesting turn after growing doubt about coach Mack Brown's future in Austin and whether the program was in need of another big offseason change. Two straight losses followed by two narrow victories over struggling teams had the Longhorns close to dropping out of the top 25 in the BCS rankings, but a big win in Lubbock apparently turned things around.

The Longhorns will face a Cyclones team that has also been inconsistent in 2012 and hopes to rebound after a 35-20 loss to Oklahoma. The Cyclones recently enjoyed the return of starting quarterback Steele Jantz, who passed for 381 yards and five touchdowns against the Baylor Bears on Oct. 27. Overall, however, the Iowa State offense has struggled, averaging 24.4 points per game.

Texas, as expected, is considered the heavy favorite in the game, as the Cyclones head to Austin as 10.5-point underdogs. Kickoff is set for 11 a.m. CT, with coverage on the Longhorn Network.
