Iowa State (6-5, 4-4 Big 12) plays host to TCU (5-6, 3-5 Big 12) in the final home game for 23 seniors on Saturday.

ISU is aiming for a perfect home record vs. Big 12 teams for the second-straight season. ISU owns a 10-game home winning streak vs. league teams, the Big 12’s best active streak. ISU’s last home loss to a Big 12 school was on Oct. 26, 2019 (OSU). A win gives ISU an above-.500 record in league play for the fifth-straight season and just the sixth time in Big 12 history.
