Cyclones begin preparing for Texas

Sam Richardson and Iowa State are 1-2 this season. Sam Richardson and Iowa State are 1-2 this season.

After picking up their first win on the season against Tulsa, Iowa State will once again hit the field on Thursday to battle Texas in their Big 12 opener.

When it comes to conference openers, history is not on the Cyclones side.

In fact, they've lost 10-straight with their last win coming in 2002 against Kansas.

The Longhorns enter Thursday's tilt fresh off a win over Kansas State.  

For ISU, knocking off Texas would provide a boost of confidence.

"Everyone says the Big 12 is open and that anyone can take it," quarterback Sam Richardson said Monday.  "But, at the end of the day, every team you're going to play is a team you have to fight against and they're going to give you their best.   This first one, being 1-0 in the Big 12 would be a huge stepping block for how our season will go."

The Cyclones and Longhorns kick off Thursday night at 6:30 in Ames. The game can be seen on ESPN.
