No. 17 Texas A&M to Face Struggling Cyclones


October 21st, 2011 by Jim Field

     AMES, Iowa (AP) – Texas A&M’s offense appears to be hitting its stride, scoring 100 points in its last two games.  That’s bad news for struggling Iowa State (3-3, 0-3 Big 12), which hosts the Aggies on Saturday.  The Cyclones have given up 37, 49 and 52 points in successive league losses to Texas, Baylor and Missouri, which have wiped out a
promising 3-0 start.  Iowa State will need to shut down Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill to pull off the upset. But Tannehill was at his best in last week’s 55-28 win over Baylor, throwing for 415 yards and a career-high six touchdown passes – four to Ryan Swope.  Texas A&M (4-2, 2-1) still believes it is the mix for the Big 12 title before it shoves off to the SEC in 2012-13.
