Insanity at Iowa State: Cyclones knock off another Big 12 unbeaten

Insanity at Iowa State: Cyclones knock off another Big 12 unbeaten”

On Saturday, Iowa State walk-on quarterback Kyle Kempt passed for 202 yards and two touchdowns.

The TCU Horned Frogs look to remain undefeated and in the College Football Playoff hunt against Iowa State at 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

One of six remaining Power 5 teams before Saturday without a loss, TCU (7-1, 4-1) scored for the 314th consecutive game only on KaVontae Turpin's 94-yard kickoff return to open the second half.

The Horned Frogs (7-1, 4-1) were called for 11 penalties for 104 yards and turned it over three times.

The Cyclones silenced Hill by blanketing his receivers with an underrated secondary, daring the Horned Frogs to run. He hit Matt Eaton on a 17-yard strike in the first quarter and then found Hakeem Butler on another 17-yarder to give the Cyclones a 14-0 lead at halftime.

In a conference that in recent years has been dominated by prolific offenses, it was Iowa State's defense that carried the day against TCU (7-1, 4-1).

In a game that was certainly not going to be won by Iowa State's offense, it was linebacker Marcel Spears striking the decisive blow with a diving interception of a Kenny Hill pass late in the fourth quarter. Defensive end Jason Waggoner recovered the ball at the Horned Frogs' 15-yard line. Entering the game, Lazard was ranked third nationally among active players in receptions (203), fifth in receiving yards (2,790) and tied for fifth in touchdown catches (21). Hill finished 12-of-25 passing for 135 yards.

Entering the season, Iowa State had one win over Top 5 teams in 59 tries in program history.
