TCU football vs. Iowa State Cyclones: Kickoff time, TV, line, prediction

TCU bounced back in a big way last Saturday.

The Frogs had a dominant start to Big 12 play, rolling to a 51-14 victory over Kansas. The bad taste from losing to crosstown rival SMU didn’t last long.

“We knew we had to step our game up and play our type of football,” senior cornerback Jeff Gladney said. “It was good to get up and have a good game.”

Now TCU is looking to carry that momentum on the road. The Frogs take on Iowa State in Ames on Saturday. Here’s everything you need to know going into it:


Kickoff: 11 a.m. Saturday

Where: MidAmerican Energy Field at Jack Trice Stadium, Ames, Iowa

TV: ESPN2 (Roy Philpott, Kelly Stouffer, Lauren Sisler)

Spanish Radio: KFZO 99.1 FM (Miguel Cruz, Elvis Gallegos)
