What to Know

Recap: Cyclones Take Down #1 Oklahoma - Buddy Hield did all he could to help the Sooners justify their newly-appointed #1 ranking, but Iowa State held on to pull the upset at home.

We're Talking TCU - We've seen ISU play badly against teams that don't have "premium" names on the front of their jerseys. Will the Cyclones be able to avoid that fate against the Horned Frogs?

WRNL Interrogates: Frogs O' War - One of the basketball writers over at Frogs O' War stopped by to answer some questions about their team.

Iowa St.-TCU Preview - If trends hold, TCU is going to have a tough time keeping up with Iowa State's ability to score the ball.

Prediction

The Cyclones currently hold a six game winning streak in the series against TCU, and by the looks of things, that streak likely won't end this season. Now that ISU is back in the conference title race (thanks to some help from the chaos that is the Big 12 Conference) and Coach Prohm is starting to coach using his own style, I think Iowa State wins comfortably today. Not a blowout, but I don't feel like the outcome will ever be in question.

Iowa State 83, TCU 71
