TCU vs Iowa State Game Preview

Why TCU Will Win

There’s still a way to salvage the season.

This wasn’t where the program was supposed to be on the final Friday of the campaign. It might not have been a Big 12 Championship year, but this was going to be a big showdown against Iowa State with a chance at a good bowl, but …

Head coach Gary Patterson is gone, and despite that, the team has won two of its last three games to stay in the mix for a bowl game with a win.

The veteran Cyclones will close with a bang. TCU will be great for a half, but it’ll be all Iowa State in the second half.
