Iowa State's sports teams have been known as the Cyclones since 1895 when Coach Pop Warner's team upset Northwestern 36-0 and a Chicago Tribune headline the next day reported "Struck by a Cyclone: It comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town". The Cyclones have scored at least 41 points in their three games this season, including a 44-41 overtime loss to Iowa.

The Longhorns held the Cyclones to only 10 total yards in the game.
