Iowa State enters the final game of the 2021 regular season reeling after losing two games in a row and three of the last four.
The Cyclones (6-5, 4-4 in Big 12) need a win over TCU (5-6, 3-5 in Big 12) to finish the season above the .500 mark in conference play.
The season finale — on Black Friday this year — comes against a TCU squad that has had a tumultuous season. The Horned Frogs parted ways with longtime head coach Gary Patterson after a 3-5 start.
This series has been tight in recent years. Iowa State has won three of five since Matt Campbell took over in Ames, and last year's game was a tight 37-34 Iowa State victory.
TCU is coming off a narrow 31-28 win over Kansas. Council Bluffs native and former Iowa State recruiting target Max Duggan is TCU's leading passer this season, tallying 1,832 passing yards and 14 touchdowns.
