    @cyclONefb stORy liNes Iowa State (2-5, 0-4 Big 12) returns home to face its fourth ranked team of the season in No. 19

    Oklahoma (5-2, 2-2 Big 12) Saturday at 11 a.m. in Jack Trice Stadium.

    The Cyclones are looking for their first win over the Sooners since 1990 (33-31, in Norman). ISUs last win over the Sooners in Ames was on Nov. 5, 1960 (10-6).

    ISUs first seven opponents have a combined 38-15 overall mark, one of the highest opponent winning percentages (71.7 pct.) in FBS. The Cyclones have faced three ranked teams (Kansas State, 6-1; Baylor, 6-1; Oklahoma State, 5-3). The latest Sagarin ratings lists ISUs schedule as the fifth-toughest in the nation.

    Iowa States offense continued to operate in high gear in its last outing (Oct. 18), as the Cyclones lost on a last-second field goal at Texas, 48-45. The Cyclones mounted two scoring drives which resulted in TDs in the final seven minutes to tie the score at 45-45 before UTs final FG.

    The Cyclone offense is averaging 41.0 points and 489.0 yards in its last two games, as ISUs 82 points scored in back-to-back games is the most in consecutive non-overtime contests since the 2008 season (South Dakota State, 44-17; Kent State, 48-28).

    Head coach Paul Rhoads is in his sixth season as the Cyclone leader with a career record of 29-41. Hes led the Cyclones to three bowl games (2009 Insight Bowl, 2011 Pinstripe Bowl, 2012 Liberty Bowl) in his first five seasons. Rhoads has recorded a win over a ranked team in three of the last four seasons and has defeated a league opponent on the road in each of his first five seasons, only the second coach in ISU history to achieve the feat.

    Iowa State set an all-time attendance record last season of 55,361 with three sellouts. ISU has sold over 40,000 season tickets for the third-straight season. Over 50,000 fans have attended a game in Jack Trice Stadium for a school-record 23-straight games.

    PK Cole Netten is tied for the nations lead in FG pct. (100%, 8-8 FG) as one of just five kickers left in FBS still perfect on their FG attempts (min. 7 attempts) this year. Hes made 11 FGs in a row, tying the school record for most consecutive field goals made with Jeff Shudak (1988-89).

    Iowa State boasts the nations best tight end in E.J. Bibbs. Bibbs has won CFPA TE Performer of the Week twice in the last three games, recording 21 catches, 175 yards and five TDs in the last three contests. Bibbs leads all power-5 conference TEs in catches (32) and TDs (6) this year.

    Junior QB Sam Richardson has been on a tear recently, recording the top-two single-game completion marks in school history in the last two contests: Toledo (37), Texas (36). Richardson has thrown for multiple TDs in five-straight games, tying the school record set by David Archer in the 1983 season. Hes thrown for over 300 yards and three TDs in back-to-back games, becoming only the third ISU QB to achieve the feat. A Cyclone QB has never passed for 300 yards in three-staight games and registered six-straight games with 2 or more TD passes.

    Iowa State failed to score a point in the second half in its first two games, but has scored 97 second-half points in its last five games, averaging 19.4 second half points in that span.

    The Cyclones had their 251-play streak without a turnover snapped vs. Texas. ISU ranks 14th nationally and second in the Big 12 in fewest turnovers this year with eight. With just two lost fumbles this year, ISU is seventh nationally in that category.

    A total of 15 Cyclones have received their first career starts, including five freshmen (LB Alton Meeks, WR Allen Lazard, DB Kamari Cotton-Moya and OL Jake Campos, WR Jauan Wesley).

    at No. 15 TCU on October 6, 2012.

    ISUs last win over a ranked opponent at home was on Nov. 18, 2011 in a 37-31 double overtime victory vs. No. 2 Oklahoma State.

    ISU head coach Paul Rhoads is 4-22 vs. ranked opponents in his tenure as the Cyclone head coach. Rhoads owns 23.5 percent of ISUs career wins over ranked opponents.

    iOwA stAte-OklAhOmA quick fActs Oklahoma leads the all-time series vs. Iowa State at 71-5-2. The Sooners are 34-2-1 vs. the Cyclones in games played in Ames. ISUs last win in the series

    was in Norman when the Cyclones defeated the Sooners, 33-31 in 1990.

    OU has won 15-straight games in the series and 21-straight in Ames. ISUs last win over OU in Ames was on Nov. 5, 1960 (10-6). ISU starting center Tom Farniok will face his brother, Derek, who is a junior OL for the Sooners. A pair of OU assistants, Jay Norvell and Jay Boulware, spent time as assistants at ISU. Norvell

    was an assistant, along with current ISU head coach Paul Rhoads, with the Cyclones from 1995-97. Boulware was on ISUs staff from 2007-08.

    ISU offensive coordinator Mark Mangino was on OU head coach Bob Stoops initial coaching staffs at OU from 1999-2001.

    ISU offensive line coach Brandon Blaney was on Stoops OU staff from 1999-2000.

    texAs RecAp Iowa State recorded season highs in points (45), total offense (524) and rushing yards (179), but fell

    just short in a thrilling 48-45 loss at Texas on Oct. 18.

    The Cyclones fell down 14-0 early, but rallied to score 21 unanswered points and went into the break tied at 28-28.

    It appeared UT had the game under control with a 38-31 lead midway through the fourth quarter, but the Cyclones struck twice with two long scoring drives, including a TD with 0:28 seconds left to knot the score at 45-45. UT, however, completed two big passes to set up a Nick Rose FG in the closing seconds.

    There were plenty of heroes on offense for ISU, as the Cyclones ran 93 offensive plays - the most since Baylor in 2012 - and produced the most points ever against a Charlie Strong-coached team.

    ISUs 45 points was the third-most by a Cyclone team vs. a Big 12 opponent (non-overtime game) in the Paul Rhoads era: 52 vs. Texas Tech (2010), 51 vs. Kansas (2012), 45 vs. Texas (2014).

    QB Sam Richardson continued his torrid pace, throwing for over 300 yards (345) for the second-straight game and completing 36 passes, one shy of the school mark of 37 he set the week before vs. Toledo. He is one of just three Cyclones in school history with back-to-back 300-yard passing games (Austen Arnaud, 2008; Grant Rohach, 2013).

    Richardson also tossed three TD passes and ran for another, becoming just the second Cyclone in school history to record multiple TD passes in five-straight games (David Archer, 1983).

    TE E.J. Bibbs was named CFPA TE Performer of the Week with his 10-catch, 73-yard and 2-TD performance. He became the first Cyclone to register 10 catches in a game since Collin Franklin did it in 2010 vs. Colorado. Bibbs has caught a pass in 19-straight games, tying for the sixth-longest streak in school history.

    Richardson also connected with DVario Montgomery, who had nine catches for 100 yards, and Allen Lazard, who had 8 catches for 88 yards and a TD.

    Montgomery was the first Cyclone to go over 100 yards receiving since Quenton Bundrage had 137 vs. Texas last year.
