*Iowa State took a 37-23 victory in 2012 in the Horned Frogs' first-ever Big 12 home game. It also snapped a 12-game TCU winning streak that was the longest in the nation at the time.
*Prior to TCU beginning Big 12 play in 2012, the teams had not met since a 27-24 Horned Frogs' victory in the 2005 Houston Bowl.
*TCU head coach Gary Patterson's first game on the Horned Frogs' sideline was a 31-21 victory at Iowa State in 1998. Patterson was TCU's defensive coordinator at the time.
*Trevone Boykin's first collegiate start at quarterback came in Iowa State's 2012 visit to Amon G. Carter Stadium. Boykin, a redshirt freshman at the time, spent the majority of the game week taking snaps at tailback in practice before becoming TCU's starting quarterback for the game.
