Iowa State hasn’t quite hit the meat of their schedule, but has played every team on it’s schedule tough and looks vastly improved from two years ago. We should be counting our lucky stars this isn’t a night game in Ames.

Coach Matt Campbell and his Cyclone team dispatched of Texas Tech and its high-powered offense, 31-13, Saturday. Iowa State’s defense has been stellar through four games of Big 12 play, holding teams 10 or more points under their scoring average.

Turpin earns another weekly honor as one of the most dynamic return men in the country

Turpin returned a punt 90-yards to the end zone for a touchdown, bobbing and weaving his way through the Jayhawk punt coverage unit until he found some daylight. It equaled the second-longest in TCU history, and it was the third punt return touchdown of his career, tying him with Linzy Cole and Blanard Spearman for the most all-time by a Horned Frog.
