Junior running back Jirehl Brock is off to a good start as well, rushing for 280 yards and a touchdown on 50 carries. Baylor has only been on the road once this season, losing to BYU in double overtime in that game. Iowa State is on a six-game home winning streak and has a chance to put together the program's best start since 2000.'
Baylor will be the best opponent that Iowa State has faced this season, and the Bears have a competitive edge after playing BYU on the road earlier this month. Their run defense has been spectacular, allowing just 2.6 yards per carry. Iowa State ranks ninth in the Big 12 in rushing yards per game, which is going to make it difficult for the Cyclones to put up points on Saturday.'
