Iowa State ends No. 15 TCU's 12-game streak, 37-23
IOWA ST 37, TCU 23

AP Sports Writer

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- Iowa State linebacker Jake Knott
figures at some point people will quit referring to all these
big wins by the Cyclones as upsets.



They got another one Saturday, ending the longest winning streak
in major college football at 12 games with a 37-23 victory at
15th-ranked TCU.



This is the third season in a row the Cyclones (4-1, 1-1 Big 12)
won on the road against a Top 25 team. And don't forget their
double-overtime victory at home last year over Oklahoma State
that cost the Cowboys a shot at the BCS national championship.



"I don't think they are so much upsets anymore," said Knott, the
standout senior who had a late interception. "There's a lot of
people now that respect us on a new level. We need to keep
winning games like this to do that."



It was the first Big 12 home game for conference newcomer TCU
(4-1, 1-1), which played without suspended quarterback Casey
Pachall and had five turnovers.



Jared Barnett made his first start of the season and threw three
touchdowns to Josh Lenz, who later had a scoring toss of his own
on a trick play. David Irving, the Cyclones' 6-foot-7, 280-pound
defensive end, returned an interception 20 yards for a
touchdown.



Iowa State, which is home against No. 7 Kansas State next week,
won for only the third time in 33 road games against a Top 25
team since 1996. All of those wins have come in the last three
years in the state of Texas, including Barnett's first career
start last season at Texas Tech.



"It feels great, but it doesn't mean nothing if we don't come
back and finish strong the rest of the season," said Lenz, who
had five catches for 147 yards.



Barnett was 12-of-21 passing for 183 yards and ran nine times
for 30 yards. The touchdown throws of 51 and 74 yards in the
first quarter put the Cyclones up 16-7, and he threw a 1-yarder
to Lenz to start the second half.



The Frogs had won a nation-best 25 conference games in a row,
the first 24 while winning the Mountain West championship each
of the last three seasons. They won their Big 12 debut at
Kansas three weeks ago, and hadn't lost a conference game since
Nov. 6, 2008 at Utah.



"You can't give up big plays on defense and you can't turn the
ball over on offense," coach Gary Patterson said. "Real simple."



Dual-threat redshirt freshman Trevone Boykin took over for
Pachall, the second-year starter who is suspended indefinitely
after his arrest early Thursday on suspicion of driving while
intoxicated.



Pachall wasn't on the sideline after Patterson changed his
initial decision to have the quarterback in uniform without
playing.



The coach is scheduled to meet Sunday with TCU's chancellor to
discuss Pachall, who eight months before his arrest this week
admitted to police that he smoked marijuana and failed a
team-administered drug test.



Boykin was 23 of 40 passing for 270 yards with one score. He had
three interceptions, one on his first pass of the game before
two more in the fourth quarter.



Freshman B.J. Catalon had 13 carries for 86 yards, but had two
fumbles - one inside the Iowa State 5. Senior running back
Matthew Tucker didn't play because of a left ankle injury.



Jaden Oberkrom had field goals of 38, 50 and 39 yards for TCU,
which lost for only the second time its last 30 home games.



The Cyclones trickery came late in the third quarter when after
taking a handoff on a reverse Lenz stopped and threw a 15-yard
score to tight end Ernst Brun. That capped a 10-play drive aided
by two personal foul penalties, including a late hit by standout
end Stansly Maponga that wiped out a fourth-and-9 for Iowa
State.



Still, the Cyclones never trailed after the fourth play of the
game, when Barnett avoided a near turnover when he made contact
with his running back on play action before hitting Lenz in
stride for the touchdown.



"The play didn't start the way you wanted it do," coach Paul
Rhoads said. "On plays like that, focus tends to heighten a
little bit. ... He delivered a very accurate ball to end the
play. Where the ball went is where the ball was supposed to go."



Steele Jantz, the senior quarterback Barnett replaced in the
lineup, had one carry for 7 yards.



Despite temperatures in the 50s, Boykin was dealing with leg
cramps. He stayed on the ground after rolling right and throwing
a 28-yard pass to Brandon Carter early in the fourth quarter.



When Boykin returned for the next series, Irving had his
interception after swatting the pass and grabbing it out of the
air. The Frogs had the ball one more time, but Knott picked off
a pass near the goal line and got to the 36 before running out
of bounds into the Iowa State bench area.



"I had intentions of bringing it all the way back," Knott said.
"I heard the sideline say get out of bounds. I made the right
decision."



Yep, the Cyclones had another big victory, the kind they are
getting used to having.
