The Texas Longhorns will look to improve to 2-0 in Big 12 conference play Thursday night when they head to Ames to take on the Iowa State Cyclones.

Texas' season has not gone as many expected, after suffering upsets at BYU and at home against Ole Miss. But the Longhorns bounced back in Week 4 with a much-needed 31-21 win over the Kansas State Wildcats.

Running back Johnathan Gray rushed for a career-high 141 yards and two touchdowns against the Wildcats. The Texas defense held K-State's running game to three yards per carry, compared to the seven yards per carry the Longhorns gave up to BYU and Ole Miss.

The win over the Wildcats may have silenced the critics for Texas' bye week, but a lot of questions remain unanswered for the Longhorns as they roll through conference play. 

Meanwhile, the Cyclones look to continue the momentum gained from last Thursday's 38-21 upset of Tulsa with another Thursday night upset over the 2-2 Texas Longhorns.

Can Texas extend its record to 10-1 against Iowa State? Or will Cyclones end their 10 straight Big 12 opener losing streak by rolling over the Longhorns?

Let's take a look.
